We’ve got a schedule!
After the Toronto Maple Leafs were eliminated by the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday night, the NHL’s play-in round had concluded, and the league had what it needed to determine who would be playing on what days.
The Bruins kick off their first-round series in just two days, as Game 1 is on Tuesday night.
Bruins-Hurricanes Playoff Schedule
- Game 1: Tuesday, August 11, 8 PM - NESN, NBCSN, 98.5 The Sports Hub

As is tradition, it looks like almost every first round game will be available on NESN in New England, though it does look like that Saturday game will be a national broadcast only.
If you’re out of market, the games should be available on NBCSN (blacked out in New England).
If you’re up in Canada, here’s what we have for you:
- Game 1: CBC, SN, TVAS
- Game 2: CBC, SN, TVAS
- Game 3: SN, TVAS
- Game 4: CBC, SN, TVAS
Games 5-7 are TBD for Canadian broadcasting networks as well.
