The beginning of the Eastern Conference finals was set Tuesday, but the rest of the best-of-seven series between the Carolina Hurricanes and Boston Bruins remains uncertain.
The Hurricanes will open the series Thursday night in Boston at 8 p.m. on NBCSN, but Game 2 could be either Saturday night or Sunday afternoon (on NBC) depending on the results of the Game 7s in the Western Conference on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The series would then likely proceed on an every-other-day basis as it returns to Raleigh for Games 3 and 4.
