Bruins vs. Capitals live stream: Watch B's open first-round series originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs have finally arrived, and it all begins Saturday night with the Washington Capitals hosting the Boston Bruins for Game 1 of their first-round series at Capital One Arena.

The Capitals are the higher seed and will enjoy home ice advantage, but most experts and even the oddsmakers are favoring the Bruins to emerge victorious.

Boston went 4-2-2 in the regular season versus Washington. The B's also posted the league's best record (12-4-1) after the April 12 trade deadline thanks to the additions of Taylor Hall, Curtis Lazar and Mike Reilly.
