Looking at this schedule, we've got a game at 3 Original six teams (excluding Chicago and Detroit) as well as two games against Columbus and one at Ottawa. The only NorthBeast division team we're not playing is Buffalo. Yes, it's NorthBeast now, have you seen that Brian Burke is the Leafs GM? And we picked up Begin to replace Yelle? There's going to be some fighting going down, I think. The Garden and many boston sports bars will repeatedly be booming with cheers. Should be good.
The two Bruins home games before the circus comes and sits on the NHL schedule for a couple weeks are The rangers on a saturday afternoon (4pm, Sept. 19) and The BlueJackets on a Saturday Evening the next week (7pm, Sept. 26).
The 2009-10 schedule will be released next Wednesday. Can't wait. I'll have it here, and some reactions, soon after it goes up.
