BOSTON (CBS) — It’s a new season for the NHL, with a new schedule and new divisions.

The league finally announced its 2013-14 schedule on Friday afternoon, also laying out the new division and conference alignments and names.

The Bruins are in the Atlantic Division, along with Buffalo, Detroit, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, Tampa Bay and Toronto. The Eastern Conference’s other division is the “Metropolitan Division” and includes Carolina, Columbus, New Jersey, both New York teams, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Washington.

The two Western Conference divisions are the Pacific and Central.

The Bruins’ season will begin Thursday, Oct. 3, at home against the Tampa Bay Lightning at 7 p.m., and the Bruins will host the Red Wings that Saturday, Oct. 5, also at 7 p.m.

The Bruins will host the Red Wings in a Monday matinee at 1 p.m. on Columbus Day on Oct. 14, and they’ll host the Lightning for another matinee on Veterans’ Day on Nov. 11. The annual day-after Thanksgiving matinee will see the Rangers visit Boston on Nov. 29 at 1 p.m. on NBC.

Bruins fans might mark Nov. 5 on their calendar, as Tyler Seguin will make his return to Boston with the Dallas Stars.

Vancouver will visit the Garden on Feb. 4 for a rematch of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final, while Sidney Crosby and the Penguins will make their first trip to Boston on Nov. 25.

The first rematch of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final will take place Jan. 19 in Chicago, and the Blackhawks will visit Boston on March 27.
