Details on the Bruins' 2018-2019 schedule are trickling out ahead of its full release in the days to come.

Thus far, we know two dates for sure: the Bruins' home opener will be on October 8 at 1 PM against the Ottawa Senators, and the Bruins will be the visiting team when the Washington Capitals raise their Stanley Cup banner.

From the team:

And from the Caps:

The home opener might be the sleepiest on record, as it's a matinee game against what should be a truly awful Ottawa team.

The Caps game should be interesting though. It's the defending champions passing the torch to the upcoming champions. Right? Right.

The full schedule should be out by the end of the week.
