By on April 9, 2012 in

The Bruins will kick off the playoffs at home at the TD Garden on Thursday April 12. They’re going up against the Washington Capitals who beat the Bruins in the regular season series 3-1. They’ll play a second game at home on Saturday April 14 before moving the series to Washington. The Bruins had a strong finish, winning four out of the last five games of the regular season. Hopefully they will be able to carry the momentum over to the playoffs and start things off right at home.

The Red Sox will play their first home series starting on Friday April 13. The series against the Rays will follow a stint against the Blue Jays in Toronto on Monday April 9-Wednesday April 11. Though they have only played three games so far on the season, things have not been going well with their pitching. The Sox will be looking forward to playing within the friendly confines of Fenway Park and turn things around for a more optimistic, successful season.

After a game against the Heat on Tuesday April 10, the Celtics will meet the Atlanta Hawks at home at the TD Garden on Wednesday April 11. The Celtics have a two-game winning streak going and have won three of their last five games. They are now in first place by three games in front of the New York Knicks. With ten games left, they’re hoping to hold onto that lead and finish off the season strong so they can make a good run in the playoffs.

The New England Revolution will play at home at Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium on Saturday April 14. They will compete against Eastern Conference rival D.C. United. So far on the season, the Revolution are 2-3, and with only five games played, they are fifth in the conference. As the season progresses the team will likely improve and will look to do so when they play their second game at home.
