The Bruins are slated to play 17 nationally televised games next season, according to NBC's schedule which was announced on Tuesday. At least 13 of the 17 games will be aired on the NBC Sports Network, with four late season weekend games listed on the flex part of the schedule. Flex games are those that may be aired on NBC during the afternoon or moved to a later time either on NBC or NBCSN, depending on importance of the matchup. Twelve of the 17 games are exclusive to NBC or NBCSN, meaning those games will only be aired on the national channels (sorry fans of Jack Edwards).
Here is the list of games that will air on national television next season:
