Habs goaler Claude Bourque resists a Bruins attack during this 1930s game. None of these guys will be in their teams’ lineup for the Eastern Conference semifinal.
As of 10 am ET on Tuesday, the NHL still hadn’t released a schedule for the Canadiens-Boston Bruins Eastern Conference semifinal.
But multiple sources were reporting this morning that the series will begin Friday night at TD Garden, with Game 2 set for Sunday afternoon, presumably to accommodate NBC television’s desire to have a matinée.
TD Garden is booked Friday morning for the convocation ceremonies of a local university, but it’s not uncommon for the multi-purpose building to turn around quickly from afternoon NBA action to an evening NHL game.
We’ll have more details here today as they’re available. And once the NHL’s carrier pigeon finds its compass.
