It's regular season, I watch a few periods here and there, and might watch the highlights in the morning.  The NHL season doesn't start until the playoffs.  Half the teams make the playoffs, it's a dumb format that's killed the regular season for me.  We'll see who's healthy when the playoffs start, but no point in getting excited until then.

Could be worse - in the 80s, 3/4ths of the teams made the playoffs.

For Red Sox/Patriots/Celtics fans the Bruins are their "safety team" just in case the actual Boston team they root for is having an awful season and/or the Bruins are actually having a good season.

This is insanely accurate for sooooooooo many people around here.

If you drill down to the core, Boston is a hockey town above all.

Thank you.

I've watched all  but one of the Bruins games. I'll admit I watched a couple on fast forward and slowed them down when it looked like pivotal things like goals, fights, controversies were going on. It's rare, but there have been maybe five games where I could watch them live. Luckily my lady always knows when it's a good opportunity to put it on the TV live. Sometimes our daughter is watching the TV or we're playing video games so we wait until she goes to bed to put it on.

I've watched all the Celtics games.

I've watched all the Patriots games. These are the only ones I always watch live because I shoot the shiat in NFL threads.

Red Sox games I only watch out of curiosity. I stopped being a "fan" after the unnecessary media hit job they put out on Francona when he was fired. I didn't watch a single game in 2012, maybe two games in 2013 (watched the final inning of the World Series and my reaction was...huh...good for them). I watched a little more in 2018 because it was a bunch of young guys. But I don't really care any more. It's a shame because baseball is the only sport I was halfway decent at growing up.

Anyway I could ramble on and on pretending that more than three people might read every word.

Celtics are doing pretty good as well.
