Ever since the NHL signed a deal with ESPN you'll be able to catch NHL games on ESPN, ESPN+, Hulu, and TNT.
The Wild will open their season on the road against the Anaheim Ducks. Puck drop is at 9pm and you won't be able to catch the Wild season opener on Bally Sports North or Bally Sports North Plus. The only way to watch the Wild on Friday night is on ESPN+ or Hulu.
The only problem is that ESPN+ and Hulu require a subscription. ESPN+ costs $6.99 a month. You can also get ESPN+ included in a bundle with Disney+ and Hulu for $13.99 a month with ads or it cost $19.99 a month without ads.
Or another way to watch the Wild game is to head to a bar or find a friend that has a ESPN+ or Hulu subscription and get watch the game with them.
