BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Bruins don’t yet know which team they’ll be facing in the Stanley Cup Final. But at least they now know when they can get back to work.
With the Western Conference Final still playing out, the NHL released the schedule for the upcoming Stanley Cup Final. Game 1 will be Monday, May 27, at 8 p.m. ET in Boston. That will give the Bruins a full 10 days of rest between games, after they completed their sweep of the Hurricanes on May 16.
For having the best remaining regular-season record, the Bruins will have home-ice advantage, hosting Games 1 and 2, along with Games 5 and 7, if necessary. The rival team will host Games 3 and 4, along with Game 6, if necessary.
Now, all that’s left is to see if the Bruins will play the Sharks or the Blues. St. Louis tied the Western Conference Final with a 2-1 win on home ice on Friday night.
The complete schedule for the Stanley Cup Final is below. All times are Eastern.
Game 1: Monday, May 27 at 8 p.m., in Boston
