OK, so here is the good news: the Boston Bruins are playing hockey games once again in real life.
That's fan freaking tastic news. That means you can watch them on NESN, right? Uh... Uh... Uhhh…!!!! Well, it's still the preseason, so let's not get too crazy. The answer is: the TV and radio schedules for the preseason are quite odd. Maybe it's best that we break it down for you, in case you are interested in checking them out at some point. (We won't do games that've already happened because that'd be a waste of time).
This Saturday, Sept. 21, the Bruins are set to take on the Chicago Blackhawks (8:30 p.m. eastern standard time). Sadly, this game is not going to be on NESN or 98.5 The Sports Hub. Perhaps they reverse this horrible decision, but that's not my call.
On Monday, Sept. 23, Bruins fans thankfully have a little more luck. They will play the Philadelphia Flyers (7:00 p.m. eastern standard time). In the New England market, the game will be on NESNPlus for TV and 98.5 The Sports Hub for radio. Outside of the market, it'll be on NHL Network.
Fast forward to Wednesday, Sept. 25 and the Bruins are at it again against the New Jersey Devils (7:00 p.m. eastern standard time). This game will air on NESNPlus and 98.5 The Sports Hub.
THE SATURDAY AFTER THIS SATURDAY
And then, of course, who could forget the Bruins-Blackhawks matchup that is actually going to be on TV? The game is set to take place on Saturday, Sept. 28 (3:00 p.m. eastern standard time). Here's what we have for networks: NESNPlus, NHL Network and 98.5 The Sports Hub.
Definitely good they get some of these games on TV and the radio. Just wish all of them were on there.
