nhl.com Mobile Usability Test Quick Overview

Size content to viewport

The page content is too wide for the viewport, forcing the user to scroll horizontally. Size the page content to the viewport to provide a better user experience.
The page content is 422 CSS pixels wide, but the viewport is only 412 CSS pixels wide. The following elements fall outside the viewport:
The element <div id="google_ads_ifr…4__container__"></div> falls outside the viewport.
The element <div id="google_ads_ifr…5__container__"></div> falls outside the viewport.
Size tap targets appropriately

Some of the links/buttons on your webpage may be too small for a user to easily tap on a touchscreen. Consider making these tap targets larger to provide a better user experience.
The following tap targets are close to other nearby tap targets and may need additional spacing around them.
The tap target <input type="text" name="name" class="megamenu-autoc…-ahead-textbox"> is close to 1 other tap targets.
The tap target <span class="megamenu-butto…account-button"></span> is close to 1 other tap targets.
The tap target <span class="social-share__share-link">Share</span> and 38 others are close to other tap targets.
The tap target <button class="social-share__share-label">Share</button> and 38 others are close to other tap targets.

Avoid landing page redirects

Your page has 2 redirects. Redirects introduce additional delays before the page can be loaded.
Avoid landing page redirects for the following chain of redirected URLs.
Leverage browser caching

Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
Leverage browser caching for the following cacheable resources:
https://api.branch.io/v1/event (expiration not specified)
https://api.branch.io/v1/open (expiration not specified)
https://cdn.branch.io/branch-latest.min.js (expiration not specified)

Prioritize visible content

Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.
The entire HTML response was not sufficient to render the above-the-fold content. This usually indicates that additional resources, loaded after HTML parsing, were required to render above-the-fold content. Prioritize visible content that is needed for rendering above-the-fold by including it directly in the HTML response.
Only about 47% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response.
Enable compression

Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.
Enable compression for the following resources to reduce their transfer size by 142KiB (95% reduction).
Compressing https://nhl.bamcontent.com/nhl/en/section/v1/home/mediawall/nhl/web-v1.json could save 140KiB (95% reduction).
Compressing https://p.rfihub.com/ca.html?rb=642&ca=20668217&ra=2696751319372 could save 2KiB (66% reduction).
Optimize images

Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.
Optimize the following images to reduce their size by 118.2KiB (68% reduction).
Compressing and resizing https://www-league.nhlstatic.com/builds/site-core/…nhlcom-placeholder.jpg could save 43.3KiB (95% reduction).
Compressing https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/simgad/13308361485288365958 could save 30.6KiB (64% reduction).
Compressing https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/simgad/6206067438069135619 could save 30.6KiB (64% reduction).
Compressing https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/simgad/11783051480541447278 could save 10.6KiB (62% reduction).
Compressing https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/simgad/2789831881407918320 could save 1.7KiB (15% reduction).
Compressing https://nhl.bamcontent.com/images/headshots/current/168x168/skater.jpg could save 1.3KiB (32% reduction).
Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content

Your page has 2 blocking script resources and 9 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:
Minify JavaScript

Compacting JavaScript code can save many bytes of data and speed up downloading, parsing, and execution time.
Minify JavaScript for the following resources to reduce their size by 74.4KiB (48% reduction).
Minifying https://nhl.bamcontent.com/nhl/en/section/v1/home/mediawall/nhl/web-v1.json could save 72.6KiB (50% reduction).
Minifying https://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/schedule?start…d=&gameType=&timecode= could save 1.8KiB (20% reduction) after compression.
Minify HTML

Compacting HTML code, including any inline JavaScript and CSS contained in it, can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.
Minify HTML for the following resources to reduce their size by 1KiB (34% reduction).
Minifying https://p.rfihub.com/ca.html?rb=642&ca=20668217&ra=2696751319372 could save 1KiB (34% reduction).
