The Bruins will be prominently featured on NBC’s hockey telecasts this coming season with 17 nationally televised games. Five of those games will also be carried locally by NESN.
Thirteen Bruins games will be shown on the NBC Sports Network, starting with the season opener against the Flyers on Oct. 8 at TD Garden. NBCSN will carry playoff rematches against the Red Wings (Oct. 15, Dec. 29, April 2) and the Canadiens (Feb. 8).
The Bruins are scheduled for four “flex” games on NBC or NBCSN. The first, Feb. 22 at the Blackhawks, will be on NBC. The network for the other three — March 8 vs. Red Wings, March 15 at Capitals, April 11 at Lightning — will be determined at a future date.
