There was a little bit of mystery as to what time the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens would play Game 5 of their second-round Stanley Cup playoff series. We now know when the puck will drop.
The NHL announced Tuesday that the Bruins and Habs will start Game 5 at TD Garden in Boston at 7 p.m. Saturday. The primetime start will be broadcast in the United States on NBC Sports Network and in Canada on CBC as part of “Hockey Night in Canada.”
The two clubs are currently tied one game apiece in their best-of-seven second-round series. Game 3 will be played in Montreal at 7 p.m. Tuesday, and Game 4 will be played at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Bell Centre before the series shifts back to Boston.
