Everything you need to know about Bruins' 2021-22 schedule originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The official schedule for the 2021-22 NHL regular season has been revealed.

The league announced full 82-game schedules for all 32 teams -- including the new expansion franchise, the Seattle Kraken -- on Thursday night.

Last season's schedule was shortened to 56 games because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The four divisions also were realigned and teams only played their divisional opponents during the regular season.

Sweeney: Bruins, Hall have made 'significant progress' in contract talks

The league is going back to its normal, full-season schedule with the regular divisional alignment for the upcoming 2021-22 campaign.

This is great news for the Boston Bruins, who will soon play meaningful games against rivals the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning for the first time since the 2019-20 season.

The Bruins open the new season at home against the Dallas Stars. They finish the regular season April 29 against the Leafs in Toronto.
