Boston Bruins

Within minutes of Boston Bruins winger Taylor Hall sniping the overtime winner for a 3-2 win over the New York Islanders on Monday, the NHL announced that the Washington Capitals would host the Bruins in Game 1 of their first round Stanley Cup Playoffs series on Saturday at 7:15 PM ET. Well, now we know the rest of the series Bruins-Caps series schedule and the schedules for six of the eight first-round matchups.

Earlier this week, Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy said that he was hoping there’d be no back-to-back’s and ‘We’ll be every other day.’ Cassidy got his wish as that’s exactly how this series is laid out. After opening the series at Capital One Arena Saturday night, the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals will play Game 2 (7:30 PM ET) on Monday night before taking the series to Boston for Games 3 and 4 to be played May 19 and 21. Those games at TD Garden will have rare 6:30 PM ET starts though. If necessary, Game 5 would be May 23 in Washington DC, Game 6 would be on May 25 in Boston, and Game 7 back at Capital One Arena would be on May 27.

Something tells us that the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals will need at least two, if not all three of those ‘if necessary’ games to settle this series for what has become a bitter rivalry in the East Division this season. Here’s that schedule and those for the five other set series in the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs:
