The Boston Bruins open the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs on the road against the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night with puck drop scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

The Bruins will be without defensemen Torey Krug and Brandon Carlo in Game 1 due to a lower body injury for Krug and an upper body injury for Carlo. The Bruins will slot in recently signed defenseman Charlie McAvoy for help on the blue line.
