The Boston Bruins have been one of the most exciting and successful teams in the NHL over the last five seasons.
This is why it’s no surprise that the B’s will appear on national television in the United States (NBC and NBC Sports Network) a league-high 12 times (in addition to five non-exclusive games) during the 2014-15 season. The Philadelphia Flyers, San Jose Sharks, Washington Capitals and Los Angeles Kings also have 12 national TV games.
The Bruins will begin NBCSN’s schedule with their season opener against the Flyers on Oct. 8 at TD Garden. The B’s will appear on NBCSN’s “Wednesday Night Rivalry” seven times, including matchups against the Flyers, Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild. The lack of a Bruins-Canadiens matchups is a bit strange.
Here’s a roundup of all the dates and matchups on the Bruins’ national TV schedule for the upcoming season.
