If anyone wants to buy a block of games, let me know. Face value (full season ticket plan holder price, so much cheaper than box office), 1st row balcony section section 322. Time to load up the spreadsheet and take a look at the home game slate.

Oof to the 6-game post-break road trip.

But yay that there are 4 games on that trip I could go to.

I’m assuming the Prague game and the scrimmage in Germany that were supposed to happen in 2020 are still out? Really was looking forward to those.

As a SoCal resident, it sucks always waiting so long for them to come, but the 2/28 LAK, 3/1 Ducks, 3/3 Vegas is a nice swing that I am going to block off the calendar for — plays nicely into a “Sorry Honey, Bruins are playing Thursday in Vegas so I have to go a day early. . . . “ narrative

Looking at that + SJS 2/26 to knock that barn off the list. The CBJ/DET depression road trip near the end of the year is also likely just to cross those off too

Detroit as a city is underrated. Beer was cheap too, at least in the Joe. Can’t imagine the Hot N Ready’s are too expensive.

If anyone has leads on the games around X-Mas, I’m happy to pay. Looking for 3-4 tickets. Guess my FiL hasn’t been to the Garden and lives in Miami, so trying to check that one off for him.

Here are the national TV Games for the Bruins. ESPN is putting 75 games on their streaming service and only 28 on regular cable. All of the games below are exclusive to that network and not going to be on NESN so if you don't have ESPN+ you will have to get it in order to watch the Bruins that night. TNT has 50 games. ABC and TNT are doing some Saturday and Sunday afternoon games later in the season. ASG is on ABC.

10/20 at Flyers 7:30 TNT
10/22 at Sabres ESPN+/Hulu
11/26 vs. Rangers 3:30 ESPN+/Hulu
1/6 vs. Wild 7:00 ESPN
1/12 at Canadians TNT
1/13 vs. Flyers ESPN
1/20 vs. Caps 7:00 ESPN+/Hulu
1/26 at Avs 10:00 TNT
3/3 at Vegas 9:00 ESPN
3/16 at Wild 7:30 TNT
4/10 at Caps 1:30 TNT
4/19 at Blues ESPN+/Hulu
4/23 vs. Rangers 3:00 ABC/ESPN+

Is there FAQ anywhere that says whether these will be blacked out on the Center Ice package... or is that going away completely?

This is what Sports Media Watch had at the bottom of the schedule page.

New TV deal
The NHL in the 2021-22 season begins a new seven-year media rights deal with ESPN and Turner Sports. ESPN and ABC will combine to air 28 regular season games, while TNT is scheduled for 50. The ESPN+ streaming service and Hulu will air 75. All national games, including those on ESPN+ and Hulu, are exclusive (meaning there will not be local RSN coverage)

How to stream the NHL TV schedule
If you do not have a cable subscription, you can stream NHL games on ESPN, ABC and TNT through YouTube TV, Hulu, Sling or DirecTV Stream. Fubo has ESPN and ABC but not TNT. To stream games on ESPN+ or Hulu, you will have to subscribe to one or both service.
You can purchase a $6.99/month ESPN+ subscription through the following link
(this is an affiliate link and SMW may make a commission if you purchase a subscription).

Thanks... went to Center Ice page and they had this...

Starting next season, hockey has a new home on ESPN+. Access over 1000 out-of-market games and 75 exclusive games (US users only).

For more information about ESPN+ or to purchase, click here


So it seems like ESPN+ is the full on replacement in the US...

Thank you for getting me in gear to go figure out what needs to be done for this season.

I think my confusion on this is a sign that I'm getting old.

So... there is no Center Ice this year, but if I have my Disney+ with ESPN+ package, I mostly don't have to worry about it. Except for the games that are on actual ESPN, which isn't covered in the ESPN+ package, for which I need to get some kind of cable service provider.

I think so, but not certain. So don't quote me!!!!

but maybe you get even those ESPN games... otherwise it's hard to read that exclusive 75 games in anyway that makes sense...

So the real question is the 28 ESPN games and the 50 TNT games as the ones that are out of the ESPN+ package? Who owns TNT these days?

I don't know, that reads to me like ESPN+ won't have the exclusive ESPN games. For reference, I am unable to watch Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN with my ESPN+ sub, because it's a different service. And also really annoying.

Looks like it's probably back to Sling or YTTV starting next month.

Yeah I think you're right in that summation.

And for what it's worth, I've had ESPN+ this year for a few events and it's been awesome. Very excited for the NHL games to be on there, and the Hulu/Disney+/ESPN+ bundle might be the best value of all the streaming services right now.

Yes, if it’s on ESPN it’s not on the streaming service because you can stream the game on ESPN for free.

Yeah.. I haven't found a way to upgrade to all three without losing out on the 3 year pre-launch price for Disney + when it first launched... which I have till november 2022... so i'll just add ESPN+ for now

I'm really confused. I've always gotten Center Ice. Are people saying that if I get ESPN+ this year that I'll be able to get all of the Bruins games like I have with Center Ice previously?
It appears so... that second quote I have above links to NHL.com and their "where to stream" page. It no longer mentions Center Ice. I don't think it exists in the US anymore. If you are outside the us, that link also lays out your options.

Where to Stream | NHL.com

ESPN is only "free" if you are paying for another streaming service, though. You can't just go to ESPN and watch their live content, or am I totally off base on this?

Yes, you need a username and password from a cable/satellite/live streaming service to access them within the espn app and you only get access to the ESPN channels in your package.

So if I'm reading that right there are 5 games on ESPN+ and one of them will also be on ABC? Guess I won't be watching 4 games.

More I read, it's really unclear if Center Ice still exists in some form for Cable/DirecTv subscribers (I don't subscribe to any cable at all just internet).

Like if you go on Xfintiy's website it talks about "coming back in the fall for pricing on NHL center ice". Not sure if that's an old cached page or if it will still exist.

So now I think Center Ice will still exist for people that already have ESPN through cable so you can get out of market games but you will now lose those 75 games that are ESPN+ exclusive.

For me, who had NHL.tv (which was just center ice with a different name really), I only have ESPN+ as an option now.

If I have figured this all out correctly.

I think you're right, Center Ice through DirectTV/Cable <> NHL.tv.

ESPN+ is such a good deal now, as much as I hate to admit it.
So the only thing the Center Ice people would be missing are whatever teams are in those 75 ESPN+ exclusives or what are those exclusive from?

and yes... this is actually worth it for me as I'm basically paying less than what I paid for NHL.tv and I am getting a bunch of other sports and stuff on top of it.

I think you'd only be able to watch those 75 games on ESPN+ and not the teams RSN's. So the Bruins games among those 75 wouldn't be on NESN and you'd need to subscribe to ESPN+ to see them and while subscribed you would have access to all of the other games similar to Center Ice not exclusive to ABC or TNT.

The TNT exclusive games would be handled the same way and no version of them would be available on ESPN+ (or RSN's) only TNT and their app with cable/sat/live streaming subscription login credentials.

Can anyone explain why the Bruins last preseason game is on the Oct. 6 and their first regular season game is on Oct. 16? While opening night is on the 12th?

I think that I understand the regular season stuff - I have YouTubetv right now and was planning on switching to Fubo so that I can get NESN and watch the bulk of the regular season games there, or on Hulu/ESPN+. I am curious about the playoffs after the first round, though - Fubo doesn't carry TNT, TBS, etc. so, does anyone know if I'll be able to access Bruins playoff games if I move to Fubo? This is all making my head spin.
