The league released its national TV broadcast schedule this afternoon, and the Bruins will get a baker's dozen worth of games in front of the nation this season.
It's important to remember that "nationally televised" no longer means NBC or NBCSN; as you may remember, the league's new deal with ESPN and Turner kicks in this season.
This year, "nationally televised" will mean either ESPN, ESPN+, Hulu, ABC, or TNT.
To the surprise of no one, the Bruins' first national game is against...the Flyers.
These guys again?????
I guess the Boston-Philly love affair wasn't limited to NBC.
The B's don't play on ESPN until a January 6 date with the Minnesota Wild.
