Reports: Bruins-Penguins series to start Saturday night
|05.28.13 at 6:43 am ET|
According to multiple reports, the Bruins will open the Eastern Conference finals Saturday night in Pittsburgh. This would mean a week between games for the B’s, who finished off the Rangers at TD Garden in Game 5 this past Saturday.
The delay is due in part because both Western Conference semifinals are headed to Game 7s. The Blackhawks beat the Red Wings on Monday night in Game 6, and the final game in that series is scheduled for Wednesday. The Sharks and Kings play Game 7 Tuesday night.
Games 3 and 4 in Boston are likely to be next Wednesday and Friday. TD Garden is booked next Sunday and Monday nights for concerts featuring New Kids on the Block.
