BOSTON (CBS) — The city of Boston is in the midst of a summer heat wave, and it feels like the season just ended, but hockey is nevertheless just around the corner.
The Bruins on Tuesday released their preseason schedule for the upcoming 2013-14 season, perhaps in an effort to provide cool thoughts of cold rinks to fans in the area.
Training camp will begin Sept. 11 at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, and the team will travel to Montreal on Sept. 16 for its first preseason game of the year. The TD Garden will host the new divisional-rival Detroit Red Wings on Sept. 19 for Boston’s first home game as the first part of a home-and-home.
The complete preseason schedule is below. All times are Eastern.
