We knew the who, what, where and why.

Now we know the when.

The Columbus Blue Jackets will take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at 8 p.m. on Aug. 2 and 4 p.m. on Aug. 4 in their first two games of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, the NHL announced on Tuesday evening. The other game times for best-of-five series will be released at a later date.

Before playing the Maple Leafs, Columbus will first get an opportunity to do battle with an opposing team when it goes against the Boston Bruins in an exhibition game on July 30. It'll begin at 7 p.m. and will be the only opportunity the Blue Jackets have to face anybody else before taking on Toronto.

The television broadcast information for the exhibition game has not yet been announced.
