Since 1995 the Boston Bruins have played at TD Garden, which is a multipurpose arena in Boston. It has a capacity of 17,565 for hockey games. The arena also is also home to the Boston Celtics (NBA) as well as hosting various other concerts and sporting events.

The arena was renovated during the 2006-2007 season and a new high definition entertainment board was installed.
