Boston opens the 2021 NHL season in New Jersey against the Devils Thursday at 7pm, a game you can hear live on 92.9 The Ticket starting with the pregame show at 6:30pm.

We talked about that with Adam Denhard of SB Nation's Stanley Cup of Chowdah to get an idea of what the base line of expectations should be.
