The NHL has finally gotten off their collective ass and released next year's Bruins schedule. We already discussed the likely most interesting games, but here are some more thoughts:

  • Boston kicks off the season with a 3-game homestand, hosting Tampa Bay on October 3rd at 7pm on NESN. The next two visitors are Detroit and Colorado. Lotta former Mooseheads in the building in early October.
  • Columbus comes to visit on November 30th, so it's unlikely we'll see Nathan Horton this year.
  • Dallas comes to visit on November 5th. PEVERLEY PIZZA PARTY!!!!

We get our FlorthEast division rivals, too:

  • 5 games vs. Buffalo
  • 5 games vs. Florida
  • 4 games vs. Detroit
  • 4 games vs. Montreal
  • 4 games vs. Toronto
  • 4 games vs. Tampa Bay
  • 4 games vs. Ottawa

So there you have it: The Bruins' designated Flortheast Rivals this year are Florida and Buffalo. Get fucked, schedule-makers.

TV-wise, it looks like we've got:

  • 10 games on NHLN-US
  • 11 games on NBCSN, 2 of which may be on NBC
  • 3 games on the CBC
  • 1 game listed as on NBC: 1pm Black Friday game vs. NYR

Time of day:

  • 12:30pm: 2 games (1 home, 1 away)
  • 1pm: 10 home games (1 away)
  • 3pm: 3 games (1 at home, 2 away)
  • 5pm: 1 game in Florida
  • 7pm: 39 games
  • 7:30pm: 10 games (2 home, 8 away)
  • 8:00pm: 7 games (all away)
  • 8:30pm: 1 game at Dallas
  • 9pm: 2 away games
  • 9:30pm: 2 away games
  • 10pm: 2 away games
  • 10:30pm: 2 away games
  • Oh, and this little tidbit:

    Which part of the season are you most looking forward to?
