Bruins-Capitals series to start Thursday

The Bruins opening four games of their first round playoff series with the Washington Capitals has been released. It includes a Thursday night opener at TD Garden, a nationally televised game on Saturday on NBC, and two days off in Washington DC between games.

The Bruins will open against the Caps with a 7:30 start at TD Garden on Thursday, April 12 and host Game 2 at 3 p.m. on Saturday afternoon to be televised nationally on the NBC Network.

That will be followed by road games in Washington, D.C. on Monday April 16 and Thursday April 19, both 7:30 pm starts. Then the series will return to Boston for another Saturday afternoon matinee at TD Garden if the Bruins-Capitals series goes past four games.

Game 6 would be Sunday, April 22 at the Verizon Center if needed, and a potential Game 7 would be Wednesday, April 25, at TD Garden.

That means the teams could have two days off between games on two separate occasions a rarity in the game-every-other day mode of the playoffs. Here is the full schedule with American and Canadian broadcast rights:

Thursday, April 12 7:30 p.m. Washington at Boston NBC Sports Network, CBC

Tiger Woods arrested for DUI in Jupiter, Florida

Tiger Woods, recovering from his fourth back surgery in the last three years, was arrested on DUI charges Monday morning in Jupiter, Fla.

Woods, 41, is the winner of 79 PGA tournaments in his career (including 14 majors). He was stopped this morning at around 3 a.m. and booked at 7:18 a.m. He was released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m.

Physical problems have plagued Woods in recent years, but he said last week "unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again." However, he will need months to recover from his most recent surgery.
