Giving Notice, Being Asked to Leave Early, and Unemployment.

I'm in MA. I'm about to give my two-weeks, but I'm guessing they're going to tell me to just leave. Could I apply for unemployment to fill the gap between the job I'm leaving and my new job?

I've been on a few job interviews in the past week and one I think is going to lead to an offer (I had two rounds of interviews, then a third meeting with the CEO and they asked for references). I'm already plotting my escape from my current hellish job. I'm in Massachusetts.
I plan on giving two week's notice and my last day of employment (coincidentally, really) will be on the day that we get our annual bonus payouts. I'm about 60% certain though, that they are going to ask me to leave a day or two after I give my notice however (most likely so they can deny me of my bonus).
However, where I wouldn't be starting my new job for another 3 weeks, could this allow me to apply for unemployment? I know that I'm voluntarily leaving, but they would be telling me to leave early. I know this might be a stretch.
