NHL released the Boston Bruins vs. Montreal Canadiens schedule for Round 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Saturday, April 16, 2011 7 p.m. Montreal at Boston
Monday, April 18, 2011 7:30 p.m. Boston at Montreal
Thursday, April 21, 2011 7 p.m. Boston at Montreal
Saturday, April 23, 2011 7 p.m. Montreal at Boston (if needed)
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 TBD Boston at Montreal (if needed)
Wednesday, April 27, 2011 TBD Montreal at Boston (if needed)
As expected (because of Celtics scheduling), Game 1 will be on Thursday.
But back-to-back games for Game 6 and Game 7?
Way to blow that one, NHL.
Anyone knows if this has ever happened before?
Hopefully Bruins will wrap up the series well before a Game 6 or 7.
