Bruins share epic hype video before Game 1 vs. Capitals originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

It's the best time of the year for hockey fans -- the start of the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs have arrived.

The Boston Bruins will begin their latest quest for the Stanley Cup when they play the Washington Capitals in Game 1 of their first-round series at Capital One Arena on Saturday night.

The Bruins enter the playoffs as the league's hottest team since the April 12 NHL trade deadline. They closed the regular season with a 12-4-1 record, and the deadline of additions of Taylor Hall, Curtis Lazar and Mike Reilly have fit in seamlessly.

The Capitals are no strangers to the postseason, and many of their current players were on the 2017-18 roster that lifted the Stanley Cup. They are a formidable opponent.

This Round 1 series should be an evenly matched affair featuring lots of physical play and high-intensity moments. Most oddsmakers and experts expect the B's to emerge victorious, though. The Bruins will try to prove them right beginning Saturday night.
