The NHL announced another round of schedule updates Tuesday, including three date changes for the Bruins.

Two of the affected games are against the Flyers. The game originally scheduled for March 7 at TD Garden, postponed by the NHL last week amid another wave of changes, will be played April 5. That replaces a scheduled game between the teams in Philadelphia, which now shifts to April 10.

With those changes, the Bruins face a grueling stretch of five games in seven nights — they already were slated to travel to Philadelphia April 6, and also have games at Washington April 8 and 11, with the new date back in Philadelphia in between.


The third game change shifts a matchup at home against the Islanders back one day, from April 14 to April 15. That gives the teams a pair of matchups on back-to-back nights at TD Garden, with a previously scheduled matchup against the Islanders on April 16.

A total of 25 games across the NHL changed dates in the latest update, including a May 6 matchup between the Stanley Cup champion Lightning and Panthers that has not been rescheduled. An additional six games changed start times on the same dates.
