It will be televised on NBC Sports Philadelphia (in Flyers markets only), NESN (Bruins markets) and NHL Network (everywhere in the US). There are also many different ways you can watch a live stream of the Bruins vs Flyers for free or cheap. Here’s how.

The Sling TV “Sling Orange” channel package plus the “Sports Extra” add-on will get you both NHL Network and the NHL Network alternate channel. It also includes all the ESPN channels, NBA TV, MLB TV, the Tennis Channel, TNT and TBS for all your sports needs.

Though Sling doesn’t come with a free trial, this option is only $26 for your first month and then $51 per month after that. There is no live-TV streaming service with the same channels that comes close to that low of a price-point.

As such, we’d go with Sling if you want a long-term streaming service with the best sports-per-dollar ratio. But if you want some free options, you can keep on reading:
