Blog Photo - Which NHL payoff games you can watch online for freeThe Stanley Cup Playoffs begin Wednesday night, and NBC is streaming NHL playoff games online for free! But not many of them. In fact, out of the 56 possible first round NHL playoff games, NBC will only livestream 6 of them. And of those, 3 of them are "If Necessary" Game 5 games.

If you don't have an active cable TV subscription, you only get free live webcasts of those games being broadcast on NBC. But if you do have an active cable subscription, you can see a whole bunch of games covering each first-round matchup -- if your cable provider carries the CNBC or the NBC Sports Network.

So which games can you watch online for free, without a cable subscription? We only have the first-round matchups available right now, but here is the Round 1 NHL streaming schedule for cord-cutters.
