The NHL has informed the Bruins that they will open the season on Jan. 19 at TD Garden against the New York Rangers, according to a team source. It will likely be a 7 p.m. start, although that time could change.
It’s possible the Bruins could begin the season with a multi-game homestand. The Celtics will not play at home until Jan. 24. The Bruins were originally scheduled to play Toronto on Jan. 21. That matchup could stay the same in the revised 48-game schedule.
