NHL playoff schedule: Results, dates, times, TV

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The Boston Bruins’ record-setting 65 wins and 135 regular-season points have rolled back to zero.

The big number now is 16, the number of victories needed to capture the Stanley Cup, which the Bruins last did in 2011. They lost in the Final in 2013 and 2019. 

Their first opponent is the Florida Panthers, who had won the Presidents’ Trophy last season and needed a late-season surge to get back to the playoffs.

The NHL has released the schedule for the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
