This season is going to be an interesting one for the NHL, as a shortened slate will make each game more meaningful and each divisional matchup that much more intense. One guy who knows a thing or two about the madness that is a 48-game season is former Bruins captain Ray Bourque. Bourque, of course, played in a 48-game season during the lockout-shortened campaign of 1994-95. Bourque spoke with NESN’s Naoko Funayama on Tuesday, and the Boston legend said that the lack of training camp and preparation before playing “real” games was perhaps the biggest adjustment. He also stressed that it’s important for teams to get off to a good start. Check out the video above to hear more from Bourque.
