  • The networks still love the Boston Bruins, as it’s been announced that the Bruins will have a staggering 14 nationally-televised games during the 2022-23 regular season.

    Entering the second year of the post-NBC viewing experience on a national platform, ‘nationally-televised’ in this instance means that the Bruins will be among the National Hockey League’s premier players on ESPN, ESPN+, Hulu, ABC, and TNT.

    Their 14 nationally broadcast games ranks as the fourth-most in hockey, with only the Penguins (15), Rangers (15), and Wild (15) set to appear on that stage more frequently than the B’s.

    And the Bruins won’t have to wait long on that front, either, as the Black and Gold’s season-opening tilt with the Capitals down in D.C. will headline TNT’s opening week coverage.

  • Following the season-opening TNT broadcast, the Bruins will find themselves back on the national stage with back-to-back primetime showings, with the first set for Tuesday, Nov. 1 in Pittsburgh (8 p.m. on ESPN) and follow-up slated for Thursday, Nov. 3 at MSG against the Rangers on ESPN+/Hulu.

  • The Bruins will then make their triumphant return to the TNT airwaves for the 2023 Discover Winter Classic, which is set for 2 p.m., Monday, Jan. 2 at Fenway Park.

    This will mark Boston’s fourth time participating in the Winter Classic, with the B’s previously participating in the event in 2010, 2016, and 2019. This will mark the B’s third time as the home team, having previously played at Fenway Park (2010) and Gillette Stadium (2016).

    Overall, this will the B’s fifth outdoor game since 2010.

    The Penguins, meanwhile, will be participating in their third Winter Classic, and their fifth outdoor game since 2008.

  • The Bruins will have one more nationally-televised game in the month of January, which will come on Jan. 18 in Long Island with a 7:30 TNT puck drop against the Islanders. But that game will actually be local for those of us in the Boston market, with NESN getting that game for those in-market.

    And though February will feature just one national game for the Bruins — an ABC 3:30 p.m. Saturday head-to-head with the Capitals at TD Garden on Feb. 11 — the Bruins will find themselves on hockey’s national stage with more than a handful of contests in March.

  • Beginning with an ESPN+/Hulu game on Thursday, Mar. 2 against the Sabres, March will come with five nationally-televised games for Patrice Bergeron and the Bruins.

    That slate will include an ABC matinee between the Bruins and Rangers on Saturday, Mar. 4, an Edmonton-Boston showdown on ESPN+/Hulu on Thursday, Mar. 9, and a weekend back-to-back, home-and-home between the Bruins and Red Wings on Mar. 11 and Mar. 12.

    That weekend back-to-back will kick off with an ABC Saturday matinee at 1 p.m., and will shift to Detroit the next day for a 1:30 p.m. contest on TNT.

  • The Bruins will have another weekend back-to-back on ABC-TNT in April, too, with a Saturday, Apr. 1 3 p.m. showdown against the Penguins on ABC, and a 3:30 p.m. TNT meeting with the Blues the next day.

    Boston’s final non-NESN broadcast of the regular season will come the very next week, as the B’s will head to Philly and square off with the Flyers in a 6 p.m. game on Sunday, Apr. 9.
