Did you know the final Bruins-Flames game in Beijing was being broadcast yesterday morning on NBCSNPDQETC and on The Sports Hub? I didn’t until I got in the car to take my dog to the park. It seems that NHL preseason game broadcast schedules need to be determined by reading tea leaves or some other divination tool.
By the way, the Bruins won this game as well with strong efforts from the two Jakes: a debilitated Jake DeBrusk (2 goals) and a strong forecheck by Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson. Kevan Miller, who is not a Jake, got the empty-netter to make the final score 3-1.
With their season opener against the Washington Capitals only two weeks away, the Boston Bruins have started to cut down their training camp roster.
