Report: Bruins to open season at home against Rangers on Jan. 19

According to the Boston Globe [1], which cited a team source, the Bruins have been told by the NHL [2] that they will open their 48-game regular season schedule on January 19 at TD Garden against the New York Rangers [3], with a 7 p.m. start likely. The report suggests that, with the Celtics [4] on the road until January 24, the Bruins might end up with a multi-game homestand to start the season, noting the possibility that the Toronto Maple Leafs [5] could come to Boston on January 21 — a date that had been part of the original NHL [6] season schedule.
