BOSTON (CBS) –  The Boston Bruins will open the 2013 lockout shortened season by hosting the New York Rangers, according to the Boston Globe.

The Globe, citing a team source, is reporting hockey will return to the TD Garden on Saturday, January 19 with the original six matchup. Game time is expected to be 7pm.

The Globe hints that the Bruins may start the season off with a home stand thanks to the Boston Celtics being out of town until January 24. Boston could host the Toronto Maple Leafs two nights after the opening, a game that was part of the original NHL schedule before the lockout whipped away more than 50-percent of the games.

On Wednesday, the NHL board of governors ratified the new tentative agreement the NHL and NHLPA had reached over the weekend. The players are expected to vote on the deal on Friday or Saturday, with training camps likely beginning on Sunday.
