Let’s take a look at some trends for this match-up. Boston is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games and 4-1 SU in its last 5 games on the road. Boston is 16-6 SU in its last 22 games when playing Toronto and 8-3 SU in its last 11 games when playing on the road against Toronto. The Maple Leafs are 5-2 SU in its last 7 games. Toronto is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games at home. Boston is second last in the league in power play chances at 2.6 per game.
Boston has been on fire as of late. However, four of their last five games were at home against average competition. Toronto have played three of their last four on the road. In their seven games Toronto have went 5-1-1. However, Toronto lost to the Bruins 4-1 with the Maple Leafs having the home ice. Both teams currently are looking good but with the Maple Leafs having home ice and looking for payback from an earlier regular season loss I lean Maple Leafs in this spot. Chara has been out for Boston a while now but also Bruins will be without forward David Krejci. Both are centerpieces for that Bruins lineup. Thinking like a Contrarian here I really believe the Bruins are a little fat from feasting off five wins in a row. Look for the home dog to play hard in front of the home crowd tonight and get a nice win. Best of Luck!
