The Bruins had a historic 2022-23 season, setting NHL records for the most points and wins by a team in the regular season.
That success did not translate over to the postseason, as Boston was stunned by Florida in the first round of the playoffs, blowing a 3-1 series lead to the Panthers to end their campaign unceremoniously.
The Bruins enter the 2023-24 season without longtime center Patrice Bergeron, who had been a team leader on and off the ice for nearly two decades. Boston is expected to regress, especially coming off a dominant season last year, but should be in the running to make the postseason with a strong core group that includes Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Charlie McAvoy.
Here’s how to catch Bruins games locally without cable this season:
Boston Bruins live streams
The Bruins play the majority of their games on the New England Sports Network (NESN), which the Fenway Sports Group owns. Fubo carries NESN, which makes the streaming service one of the best options to watch B’s games throughout the 2023-24 season.
Fans can sign up for Fubo’s Pro or Elite packages, both of which carry NESN, in addition to 174 channels. In partnership with the Bruins, Fubo is offering season-ticket members $100 off a new subscription over two months. Non-season-ticket members can get a free 14-day trial.
How to watch Bruins games without cable
There are a number of ways to catch Bruins games throughout the 2023 seasons (NHL’s blackout rules apply):
— If you’re in the Boston market, Fubo carries NESN, the Bruins’ official regional sports network. Viewers inside of the Boston market can find Bruins matchups all throughout the 2023-24 season. You’ll also have access to games on ESPN and NHL Network. However, if you live outside of the Boston area, Fubo will not carry the games on NESN.
— For those living in the Boston area, DirectTV Stream also offers NESN, as well as all the networks that air nationally televised games: ESPN, TNT and NHL Network.
— YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, and Sling TV will stream nationally televised games on ESPN and TNT, giving cord-cutters another streaming option. However, none of these services carry NHL Network or NESN.
