However, If you are in the United States, then ESPN+ will carry any Leafs game this season that isn’t exclusive to a national broadcast on ESPN or TNT. Games will also be blacked out if you live in the opposing team’s market. In those cases, you would need your local team’s Regional Sports Network.
If the Leafs aren’t playing your local NHL team much this season, then you can subscribe directly to ESPN+ and pick up Sling Orange for Leafs games on TNT and ESPN. Sling also has an option for NHL Network as well.
However, if the Leafs are playing your local team a lot this season, then people who live in the Blackhawks, Flyers, Sharks, or Capitals TV Market should pick up Hulu Live TV as that streaming service includes ESPN+ along with ESPN and TNT. Other Markets will want to subscribe directly to ESPN+ for the bulk of Leafs games and then pick up DIRECTV STREAM’s Choice Plan for games when your local team is playing the Leafs.
DIRECTV STREAM includes ESPN and TNT, and they carry every US-based NHL team’s RSN (if you live in that market) except for the Flyers.

Next 10 Leafs Games
Upcoming Leafs games are in the table below. If the "Leafs RSN" shows blank that week, then you must watch the game on the National Network. If the game is showing on the Leafs RSN, and the National Network indicates the game is on "ESPN+" then those living in the Leafs TV Market will not be able to stream the game on ESPN+ and have to watch on the Leafs RSN.
If you are a Leafs fan living in the opponent's TV market, and the National Network indicates the game is on "ESPN+," then you will need to watch the game on the opponent's RSN. The National game may be an "ESPN+" Exclusive, which means the game will not air on either RSN.
The Canadian teams are an exception as the RSN's for those teams are for Canadian viewers, while "National Network" means the US national network.
