Leafs first-round playoff schedule released

We survived 82 games, but now the real fun begins. The schedule for the upcoming series between the Leafs and the Boston Bruins has been released.

Birds are singing, squirrels are coming out from their slumber, and spring air is all around us — but we will be in our basements watching and re-watching every single game of this series. We can save our time outside for the summer.

Here are the dates that you have to plan your life around:

Game 1 @ BOS – Thurs, April 11 @ 7pm ET

Game 2 @ BOS – Sat, April 13 @ 8pm ET

Game 3 @ TOR – Mon, April 15 @ 7pm ET

Game 4 @ TOR – Wed, April 17 @ 7pm ET

Game 5 @ BOS – Fri, April 19, TBD

Game 6 @ TOR – Sun, April 21, TBD

Game 7 @ BOS – Tues, April 23, TBD

Now you know exactly when to cancel those dinner plans and tell your family you will see them later.

All seven of these games will be available on Sportsnet in Canada, while Game 1 will be on NBCSN, Game 2 will be on NBC, and Games 3 and 4 will be returning to NBCSN, for all the Americans.

In just four more nights of sleep, the Leafs will return to the playoffs and will hopefully last longer than just these upcoming games.
