This season, the Bruins took their game to the national level with a tilt at Fenway Park in the 2010 Winter Classic. Next season, the Black and Gold are going international.
The Boston Globe is reporting that according to an NHL source, the B's will kick off 2010-11 with two regular-season games in Prague — taking on the Phoenix Coyotes in both games. The trip will also include exhibition games.
Such a European journey is nothing new for the NHL. Earlier this season, the Blackhawks and Panthers squared off in Helsinki, and the Red Wings and Blues battled in Stockholm. Prague has been a gracious host before, welcomnig in the Rangers and Lightning just two years ago.
David Krejci and Vladimir Sobotka are currently the lone Czech natives on the Black and Gold roster.
