BOSTON (CBS) — The local hockey team won’t have too much time to bask in its second-round victory over the Blue Jackets. In a matter of just a few days, it’ll be “on to Carolina” for the Boston Bruins.
Coming off their Game 6 win in Monday night in Columbus to wrap up a series victory, the Bruins will get some rest, but not a whole lot of it, before welcoming the Carolina Hurricanes for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals in Game 1 on Thursday night.
The Hurricanes will be well-rested, as they completed their second-round sweep of the Islanders on Friday, May 3.
The Bruins won two of their three meetings with the Hurricanes this year, splitting the two games in Carolina and requiring an overtime game-winner from David Krejci to win the rubber match in Boston.
