Each of the Bruins’ preseason opponents were part of the NHL’s East Division in the shortened 2020-21 season. Although the NHL plans to revert to an 82-game season with regular divisions, presumably with all 32 teams playing against each other, going forward, the Bruins will stay relatively close to home as they prepare for the campaign.
