Hope it's nationally televised being its arguably the top two teams in the East. Or Gamecenter better hurry up and update the app.

I think whether it is nationally televised will depend on who some of the other match-ups are, but this one seems to be tailor made for NBC.

Personally though, I would be content if all of the Bruins games were on NESN. I am not a huge fan of the NBC broadcast teams.

I would be surprised if this was not on NBC they love the Bruins-Rangers, Maybe a Pens-Flyers matchup, but I am not seeing to many other options, I hope they do a double or triple header on NBC/NBCSN, Throw a couple more on NHL network.

What I would love.
1pm Wings-Blackhawks
4pm Flyers-Penguins
7pm Blues- Wild....7pm Nesn Rangers Bruins.
10pm Ducks-Kings

NHL Network
7pm Leafs-Habs
10pm Flames-oilers

Thats seven games to welcome hockey back.

I personally I would rather see the Bruins play the Flyers but I wouldn't be shocked if Flyers weren't playing the Pens-that one would be another game tailor made for NBC to pick up for national television.

I love the idea of a whole day of hockey games on NBC as long as the Bruins don't end up with the matinee game.

Found this a very interesting read:

MCKENZIE: RANGERS HAVE THREE OPTIONS ON REDDEN'S FUTURE
Now that the CBA has been ratified by NHL owners, the New York Rangers have to decide how to proceed with Wade Redden.

In the old CBA, it wasn't too difficult to figure out. Because a player could be "buried" in the minors and not count against the team's NHL salary cap, sending Redden to the AHL farm team in Hartford was simple and easy.

Out of sight, out of mind, off the salary cap.

But there's a provision in the new CBA that doesn't allow the hiding of NHL contracts in the minors, save the first $900,000. So Redden, with a cap hit of $6.5 million in each of this season and next, means the Rangers are now faced with using valuable cap space on a player who is not remotely part of coach John Tortorella's plans.

So now what?

Rumor has it we open in Buffalo on the 19th then Host the Leafs on the 21st at 1PM.

On the Leafs being a great option for the 21st because we had them booked for the 82 game season.

Looking at Cap Geek, the best option for the Rangers would be to just pay him not to play like MacKenzie says because they have the cap space to do so. It's an unfortunate situation for Redden though because it seems like he's been a good soldier all along and now he won't be allowed to play hockey. Of course, he's been making very nice money so I can't feel too bad for the guy.

Matinees against the Rangers were not good to the Bruins last year.

Since you can keep $$ and Cap hits in a trade now why wouldn't he list that as an option?

And if he gets hurt, just LTIR him.

People must be confusing the Saturday game with the Monday game. Saturday game looks like it'll be an evening game from everything I've read, too; while Monday will be the matinee game.

Regarding the actual match up itself - this team, and especially this goaler, has had our number for years. Don't anyone panic if we're shutout 2-0 in the opener.

It'll be fun to see the reaction he'll get from the crowd (as small as it may be, post-lockout).

Next to Habs/B's, starting with the Rags is about as great an opening match-up we could get. Both tend to play very physical against one another. It'll be a hell of a wake-up call for both teams.
