It’s official: the defending Stanley Cup champion (!) Washington Capitals will kick off their quest for back-to-back Cups against those hated rivals in black and gold... the Boston Bruins.

Who will be idle the night before.

Wait.... WHAT?

Anyway. There you go. Full schedule will be out tomorrow, as we find out what other fun tricks the NHL has up its sleeve for the 2018-19 campaign!
