After a five-day wait to find out they’ll face off with the Boston Bruins in round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Canes now know their schedule for the series.

The fourth playoff matchup between the Canes and Bruins will get underway Tuesday night win an 8 p.m. puck drop at Scotiabank Arena, pretty much exactly a week after the Canes finished off their sweep of the Rangers, and two days after the Bruins dropped to the fourth seed in the east with their third loss in round robin play against the Capitals.

As is typical of round one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, it appears the games will be available on Fox Sports Carolinas in addition to any national broadcasts.

Here’s the full schedule, which would include another back-to-back in games five and six, if necessary.

  • Game 1 Tuesday, August 11, 8 p.m., Fox Sports Carolinas, NBCSN
  • Game 2 Thursday, August 13, 8 p.m., Fox Sports Carolinas, NBCSN
  • Game 3 Saturday, August 15, Noon, Fox Sports Carolinas, NBC
  • Game 4 Monday, August 17, 8 p.m., Fox Sports Carolinas, NBCSN
  • Game 5* Wednesday, August 19, TBD, Fox Sports Carolinas
  • Game 6* Thursday, August 20, TBD, Fox Sports Carolinas
