Finally, the NHL has released the schedule for the Bruins-Canadiens series. The schedule came out Tuesday night. I don't know why they couldn't have released it during the day, or Monday. Whatever.
The series starts Thursday night in Boston with a 7:30 start time.
Game 2 will be a Saturday matinee, which is incredibly lame. A raucous Saturday night crowd would have been perfect. Instead the game begins at 12:30. That means last call at the Garden will be sometime before 2:30. How incredibly lame is that?
Games 3 and 4 will be up in Montreal on Tuesday and Thursday night of next week. Both games to start at 7.
If a Game 5 is necessary it will be on Saturday May 10th in Boston. No start time announced as of yet.
Game 6 would be Monday the 12th in Montreal at 7.
Game 7 would be back in Boston on Wednesday the 14th.
I'm glad it's starting on Thursday and we're not all waiting around getting Bru-balls until Saturday. However that 12:30 start on Saturday just flat out sucks. Why not 3 or 4? Just stupid.
