Hope you didn’t have anything to do with your Saturday night this weekend, because the Bruins and the Islanders are to begin Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in just 52 scant hours!:

And yes, this coincides with the first day of relaxed restrictions begins in Boston. For the first time since March 7th of last year, TD Garden will be at (almost) capacity. To say that the atmosphere will be electric is severely understating it. I can only imagine there will be a localized earthquake if the Bruins tally the first goal of the series.
Also yes, unfortunately we will be moving away from NESN for the rest of the playoffs, and NBC will be carrying us the rest of the way. There’s always 98.5 for the game and the game alone if you want a more B’s friendly experience! We’ll also be posting the full schedule here when it’s posted in full by the league.
Get your game face ready, because this weekend is going to be a great one for Hockey.
