The Boston Bruins and the Detroit Red Wings will begin their best-of-7 NHL playoff series on Friday night. That means four days off for both teams before they start game one at Boston Garden.

While the Bruins finished with the best record in the league and the Wings finished in the last playoff spot in the east, Detroit beat Boston 3 of the 4 games they played.

The Wings have two former UMaine Black Bears Gustav Nyquist and Jimmy Howard. Both play prominent roles with the team.
