The Boston Bruins schedule for 2021 is packed with exciting ice hockey games at their home arena TD Garden.
Normally, the regular season would run from October through mid-April - but like everything else right now, the 2021 season is impacted by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and has more than its share of weirdness, thanks to the NHL's need to create new divisions and new scheduling methods.
For starters: the shortened 56-game season (vs the normal 82 game season that starts in the fall) starts in January and runs through early May includes games only against the Sabres, Devils, Islanders, Flyers, Rangers, Capitals, and Penguins.
Notice what's missing? That's right: 2021 marks the first time ever the Bruins won't be playing the Canadiens during the regular season. And of course, for now, games will be played before fewer fans due to stadium capacity restrictions.
In case you're planning ahead for next year, here's what you can normally expect:
If you're visiting the city during hockey season and want a real Boston experience, come to a Bruins home game at famed TD Garden sports arena.
TD Garden's in-town location means you can easily walk to the stadium (depending on where you're staying), or take the T (Boston's subway) to North Station.
As you approach the Garden, you'll see fans wearing their Bruins hoodies, hear cheers erupting from all the nearby sports bars, and feel the excitement of the crowd.
And of course, once you enter the arena, the real fun begins!
Get ready to be thrilled and entertained as you watch the 6-time Stanley Cup winners in dazzling action on the ice!
