The Boston Bruins and Carolina Hurricanes will have to wait one more day before kicking off their opening-round series, the league announced.

Game 1 between the two sides has been postponed until Wednesday at 11 a.m. ET due to the Tampa Bay Lightning and Columbus Blue Jackets needing five overtimes to settle their opening-round contest.

The thriller between the Blue Jackets and Lightning was the first game since 2003 to go into a fifth overtime period, and ended as the fourth longest game in NHL history.

The Bruins and Hurricanes are set to meet in the postseason for the second straight year. Boston swept Carolina in the Eastern Conference finals in 2019.
