Bruins fans will not like this news. NESN has announced that Game 5 of the Bruins-Canadiens series will be moved to its NESNplus channel. This means that the game will be seen in Standard Definition, not in sparking clear HD.
This means that game 2 of the Red Sox-Yankees series will be on NESN HD on Thursday night. While NESN had been moving Red Sox games during conflicts with the Bruins-Habs series, the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry appears to take precedence.
Bruins fans in the BSMW forum are naturally up in arms over this and I can’t blame them. To find the NESNplus channel for your service provider, you can click here.
My sympathies to the Bruins fans.
