NHL Playoff Schedule 2011: Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers To Meet In Eastern Conference Semifinals (Again)

With Wednesday night's overtime winning goal from Nathan Horton (watch it here if you haven't already), the Boston Bruins not only eliminated the Montreal Canadiens in a Game 7, but they also booked their ticket to the second of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The NHL released the complete playoff schedule for the second round, where the Bruins will face the Philadelphia Flyers in a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals. 

The complete Bruins-Flyers series schedule: 

No. 2 Philadelphia Flyers vs. No. 3 Boston Bruins

Game 1: Bruins at Flyers, Sat., April 30, 3:00 p.m. ET (NBC/CBC)

Game 2: Bruins at Flyers, Mon., May 2, 7:30 p.m. ET (VERSUS/TSN)

Game 3: Flyers at Bruins, Wed.,  May 4, 7:00 p.m. ET (VERSUS/CBC)

Game 4: Flyers at Bruins, Fri., May 6, 8:00 p.m. ET (VERSUS JIP/CBC)

Game 5*: Bruins at Flyers, Sun., May 8, 3:00 p.m. ET (VERSUS/CBC)

Game 6*: Flyers at Bruins, Tue., May 10, TBD (VERSUS/CBC)

*if necessary

The Flyers defeated the Buffalo Sabres in seven games to advance to the second round. Philadelphia, as you may recall, knocked the Bruins out of the playoffs last season, becoming just the third NHL team ever to erase a 3-0 deficit in a seven-game series. Surely, the Bruins will be out to exact some revenge. 

For what it's worth, the Bruins went 3-0-1 against the Flyers in the 2010-11 regular season, including two wins at the Wells Fargo Center. 

The other Eastern Conference Semifinals series has the Washington Capitals hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning, while out West, it's the Nashville Predators against the Vancouver Canucks and the Detroit Red Wings taking on the San Jose Sharks
