The Boston Bruins will be on TV across the country quite a bit this season.

The NHL's national broadcast schedule, announced Tuesday, gives the Bruins seven nationally televised games in the 2020-21 season, between NBC and NBC Sports Network. There are just 56 games in the pandemic-shortened season, rather than the usual 82.

Four of the seven games on national TV will be part of "NHL on NBC," airing on NBC10 Boston, while the other three contests will appear on NBCSN as part of the network's "Wednesday Night Hockey."

Bruce Cassidy of the Boston Bruins sat down virtually with Raul Martinez to discuss the strange offseason, the departure of Torey Krug, the futures of Zdeno Chara and Tuukka Rask and recently becoming a U.S. citizen.

Here is the Bruins' full national TV schedule:

Wednesday, Feb. 3 at Philadelphia Flyers, NBCSN
Wednesday, Feb. 10 at New York Rangers, NBCSN
Sunday, Feb. 21 vs. Philadelphia Flyers, NBC
Sunday, Feb. 28 @ New York Rangers, NBC
Wednesday, March 3 vs. Washington Capitals, NBCSN
Sunday, April 18 vs. Washington Capitals, NBC
Sunday, April 25 at Pittsburgh Penguins, NBC

The remaining 48 games will be shown regionally on NESN.

The league also announced that the full broadcast schedule, which includes game times, will be announced at a later date. The Bruins and the Washington Capitals will have the most appearances on NBC this season, four apiece.

The Bruins released the team's full schedule earlier this month with all games within the East Division, created to make travel simpler this season. The East Division includes the Bruins, Capitals, Buffalo Sabres, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins.

Boston will open up its season on Jan. 14 on the road against the New Jersey Devils. The NHL season will begin on Jan. 13.

The Bruins and other clubs that made the playoffs will open up training camps on Jan. 3. Teams that did not qualify for the playoffs will begin training Dec. 30.
