The Bruins and the rest of the NHL found out their schedule for the 2013-14 schedule on Friday afternoon, and with the return to the 82-game schedule this season, the B’s will get a look at the entire league. After getting a quick glance at the Bruins’ schedule, there are a handful of games that stand out right away. Here’s a quick look at some of the games to watch this season.

Saturday, Nov. 9 versus Toronto — The two teams’ first matchup since the Bruins’ shocking Game 7 win last season.
