Bruins Schedule 2011: Big Matchup With Leafs As Boston Looks To Pick It Up This Week

Read about the upcoming Bruins schedule below and get more Bruins news at our blog Stanley Cup of Chowder.

The Bruins ended last week with a shootout win against the Blackhawks to stop the bleeding on their slow start to the season. Call it Stanley Cup Hangover. This week offers a chance to get back on track with several intriguing matchups.

The biggest game of the week comes against Northeast Division-leading Toronto on Thursday, Oct. 20. The Leafs are off to a 3-0 start this season. That matchup is sandwiched between a Tuesday meeting with Carolina and a Saturday date with the Sharks. All games are on TV (NESN) and game time is set for the puck to drop at 7 p.m. ET.

The Bruins have slumped a bit so far this season, but there's no reason to believe Boston won't be a contender again in the East. We'll see if the Bruins pick it up this week.
