The Boston Bruins might be out of contention for the Stanley Cup, but that does not mean there isn't a lot to take care of behind the scenes. On Friday afternoon, the Bruins and their official website published an important notification on the offseason critical dates. They also revealed their preseason schedule ahead of time.
Here is the publication from the Bruins themselves:
"The Boston Bruins announced today, May 18, the club's official eight-game 2018 preseason schedule, which will begin on Saturday, September 15, when the Bruins will take on the Calgary Flames at Shenzhen Universiade Center in Shenzhen, China as part of the 2018 O.R.G.
