So the other newsworthy Bruins-related story that came up this week was actually from NESN, announcing that Jamie Erdahl will be joining Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley on Bruins telecasts as the new rinkside reporter. She replaces Naoko Funayama who was let go by the network after her contract expired this summer.
With regular season hockey just over two weeks away, the Bruins, along with teams across the NHL, kicked off their official training camps today. Camp rosters were released as well as a tentative schedule, and so far it’s only good news from the Black and Gold.
One of the more anticipated non-game Bruins events in a while, NESN’s new all access ‘Behind the B’ show premiered with an hour long episode last night. Modeled after HBO’s 24/7, the show covered a variety of topics stretching from their defeat in the Finals all the way through this summer’s development camp. It was about what I expected in terms of content, but revealing and interesting enough for sure. If you missed it, you can catch it here.
It was a big weekend for Bruins rookie hopefuls as they traveled south for a weekend trio of games in preparation for full training camp which starts on Wednesday. Despite a loss to the Panthers and ties with the Lightning and Predators rookies, a number of players had impressive performances as they battle for attention.
If you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, this trailer appeared on BostonBruins.com today:
…and I just went from six to midnight. With the rise in popularity of HBO’s 24/7 series many fans had been calling for a Bruins version of the show, and it appears the Bruins and NESN have finally got the message.
