The Boston Bruins will have their share of nationally televised games as TNT announced that more than a handful of B’s games will air on their network this season, as they continue to count down until Boston Bruins training camp.

The Boston Bruins’ NHL season opener against the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center on Oct. 12 will be part of a doubleheader broadcast on TNT with the second half featuring the Colorado Avalanche raising their Stanley Cup banner to the rafters, and the Jan. 2 2023 Winter Classic at Fenway Park against the Pittsburgh Penguins will be one of the network’s showpiece events during the hockey season.

The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins, a pair of traditional powerhouse hockey TV markets with marquee players, lead all NHL teams with seven national appearances on TNT while the Boston Bruins, Tampa Bay Lightning and Colorado Avalanche are next with six scheduled appearances on the national cable network.

Call me a homer, but, I would just as soon hear Jack and Brick do the games. The national broadcasts always seem slanted against the Bruins.
