Bruins vs. Islanders live stream: How to watch Game 1 online originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The second round of the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs opens Saturday night in Boston, where the Bruins will host the New York Islanders at TD Garden.

The atmosphere at the Garden should be electric. Not only is a new series beginning, the arena will be at near-full capacity for the first time since March of 2020. The last Bruins playoff game at TD Garden with a full crowd (or close to it) was Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final.

So, it's safe to say home ice advantage could be a real factor for the Bruins on Saturday night.

The Bruins should be well-rested, too, after eliminating the Washington Capitals in the first round six days ago. The Islanders enter this series after beating the favored Pittsburgh Penguins in a six-game Round 1 series.
