    NHL reveals home openers for 2019-20 season

    I'm betting we play COL and/or VGK too on the road trip before we come home.

    I bet our late start is due in part to the Garden renovations, which were delayed due to the lengthy Cup run.

    Oct 3 @ Dallas
    Oct 5 @Arizona

    Early season west road trip it seems. Wonder if Cali teams will be in that swing before our home opener too

    Most likely they will play a third road game in Denver before coming home

    Too many games - you'd have to do 7-(8/9)-10, and then fly home from California for media on the 11th and a game on the 12th. Seems unnecessarily cruel. Plus it means a later stop in Vegas with the closest teams probably being the Western Canada teams, which doesn't make sense.

    There's probably 1 or 2 more games before we come home - I agree with Fenway that Colorado's likely, since we had a COL-DAL-ARI trip last year. But the year before it was COL-ARI-VGK, so adding COL and VGK as a four-team southwest trip is an outside possibility - or another random team on the way home.

    No times on any of the games - wonder if our Saturday opener is a matinee or a night game.

    I'm just glad they didn't schedule us for St. Louis's home opener and banner raising to rub it in our faces more

    I'm just glad we don't have to wait an extra two months for hockey to return like some fans. Early season games are not great anyway, so get one of the west coast trips out of the way now. I'm good with that.

    Hope your wrong we don’t play very well vs Colorado and always seem to have the 2 games against them in October going back forever.

    Short off season give me points. We have a good record vs Seggy and NJD and Arizona might be 2 worst teams in the league.

    Been ages since we have opened on a Saturday night love that and it not being a team who will break the bank to get tix to. Hope they take Hughes.

    Now I just need @Vancouver the week before Christmas haven’t been to a game there since 2011 and assuming there’s some snow it’s time to go back to Whistler for my pre Christmas vacation will be 3 years since the last.

    The St. Louis trip usually gets coupled with Chicago ... which is always a Sunday in the second half of the year in the NBC TV window.

    Seems there are three western swings a year - VAN-CGY-EDM, LA-ANA-SJ and some combo of AZ-COL-VGK. Sometimes Dallas gets added to that one and Vegas gets grafted onto the California trip. I assume Seattle will be added to the Western Canada swing for most teams.

    The B’s almost always end up in Colorado/Arizona in October on the circus trip, so it’s not a massive surprise they’re starting with the DAL-AZ swing.

    There's no way they'd double down and have a SCF rematch on top of opening night. That's why the Bruins typically get blah opening nights (Devils, Senators, and Red Wings were the last three) - they figure the lure of opening night is enough to draw people in. No need to have the Habs play us then.

    Oh, and there's technically no more circus trip in October - no more Barnum and Bailey since 2016. But October already has 6 concerts, plus whatever preseason/season games the Celtics play. Starting with a road trip was almost inevitable.

    I usually journey to Dallas for the Bruins' annual game but skipped it this past season. The Bruins were decimated with injuries, and it was too far and too expensive to see a squad with so many AHLers.

    But opening the season?

    If they stay healthy during the pre-season, it should be the full squad.

    I'm also going under the assumption that sometime between now and then I find forgiveness toward the B's, since I'm still stewing over the egg they laid in Game 7. ;)
