Time to change that narrative for the Toronto Maple Leafs – Game 1 tonight

The long-standing rivalry between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins resumes this Saturday night as they face off in Boston for the first game of their series at 8 p.m. The Leafs have a history of playoff defeats against the Bruins, losing six consecutive series since 1959. However, this weekend offers them a chance to change that narrative.

Schedule:

  • Game 1: Saturday in Boston
  • Game 2: Monday in Boston
  • Game 3: Wednesday at Scotiabank Arena
  • Game 4: Next Saturday at Scotiabank Arena
  • Potential games 5 and 6 will alternate between Boston and Toronto.

Auston Matthews fell just shy of a historic 70-goal regular season, with Toronto Maple Leafs concluding with four consecutive losses, shifting focus to their playoff clash with the Boston Bruins. The Bruins swept their regular-season meetings, setting the stage for a highly anticipated postseason battle. Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe is tight-lipped about lineup decisions, while Bruins coach Jim Montgomery notes a heightened sense of urgency among his players after a disappointing previous season. The series promises intensity and strategic matchups, with Matthews and Boston’s David Pastrnak leading their respective teams in scoring. Goaltending will be crucial, with Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman for Boston facing off against Toronto’s Ilya Samsonov. Both teams boast potent power plays but differ in penalty kill efficiency. As the playoffs commence, all eyes are on Matthews and his quest for playoff success amidst heightened competition.
