If they draw Boston and all series start either Tues or Wed, then the series would have to start on Tuesday. I say that because usually playoff games in the NHL are every other day, so the schedule would look something like this:

Game 1 - Tues 4/30 in BOS
Game 2 - Thurs 5/2 in BOS
Game 3 - Sat 5/4 at MSG
Game 4 - Mon 5/6 at MSG
Game 5 - Wed 5/8 in BOS
Game 6 - Fri 5/10 at MSG
Game 7 - Sun 5/12 in BOS

When setting up the schedule on Sunday, they would have to avoid 5/3 because thats a potential Game 6 for the Knicks/Celtic series, and 5/5 at the Garden for a potential game 7 (not happening, but it doesnt matter). Unless there are some set of circumstances we dont know about thats the likely schedule if they finish 7th.
I agree with you, unless the Knicks sweep the Celtics. The Bruins play Sunday night in Boston and the schedule comes out after that. If that's the case we likely will see Games 1 and 2 on Wed 5/1 and Fri 5/3 with the MSG opener on Sunday 5/5. If the Knicks sweep, it's easiest to keep the schedule the same as the NBA one because the buildings are guaranteed to be available.
