Published April 17, 2024 at 9:31

The Bruins finished second in the division after back to back loses to the Capitals and Senators to finish the season, meaning they will face the Leafs in the first round.

This will be the fourth time in 11 years that the Bruins will face the Leafs which should be a great matchup. The Bruins went 4-0 against the Leafs this season.

"Obviously, it will be a real challenge, but it will be real special being Original Six, and it has a real history to it," Leafs captain John Tavares said after the matchup was locked in on Tuesday. "Great opportunity for us. It's a test and we have to be prepared." - Tavares

«Regardless of how it went and how we played in any of the periods, come playoff time, there's so much excitement and adrenaline,» Marchand said. «Guys are so dialled in that it would've been nice if we played better tonight, but at the end of the day, we have all week to prepare, and we'll be excited to get going.»

The Bruins will have 3 days to prepare for game 1 that will take place at TD Garden on Saturday. Clearly both teams will show up ready to play and even though the Bruins won all the matchups this season, winning this series will be far from a walk in the park.
