Toronto Maple Leafs vs Boston Bruins (4/11)

Toronto Maple Leafs vs Boston Bruins (4/11)

The Bruins not only knocked them out a year ago, but also in a devastating seven-game series their previous playoff matchup, in 2013.

Boston has topped the Leafs each of the last two times the teams have met in the playoffs, with the Bruins famously pulling off Game 7 victories in each of those series.

Yes, the Leafs have got "better and better and better" if the point of comparison is, say, Babcock's first season in Toronto in 2015-16, when the club was last overall and won the right to select Auston Matthews first.

You can't help but think about past year a little bit but that being said, they're a different team and we're a different team now and it's important that we realize that.

The club has more firepower compared to a year ago and many of Toronto's key players didn't play well in last season's series while key members of the Bruins could do no wrong. I think when you look at Boston, I think to me Boston and Washington are your two teams in the East that have size, depth, heavy and hard, they have star power than can score.

That history Rielly refers to between the two teams has not been kind to Toronto. You also can't pick just one defenceman or shutdown forward to slow Toronto's attack because it's spread out over a couple lines driven by elite players. The Maple Leafs have gone 23-18 on the road and they have averaged 3.41 gpg and have allowed 3.07 gpg in those games. "Honestly, I'm just in shock right now". "It's not going to be an easy task this team we're playing".

The 20-year-old notched a hat trick and then added the shootout victor to lead the Canadiens to a 6-5 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs in the season finale for both teams, which came one day after Montreal was eliminated from playoff contention. He was not good during the playoffs last season, putting up a goals-against average of 3.76 and a save percentage of.896.

Buckle up your seat belts, Boston sports fans, because it's time for the best season of the year. You pull your starter, throw a guy in there, the rest of the guys are looking at you like, "What the hell are you doing? Guys get second or third chances if they prove they can handle that, and it would be no different at [goaltender], that's for sure".

"I think the only people really talking about it are the media and that's obviously what you're paid to do. Just try to move on". "They really can put the puck in the net".

For most of the season, we knew this matchup was coming.

If you've watched this team all season, that shouldn't come as a surprise. "There's no sense spending any time on that", Toronto head coach Mike Babcock said. Some of those losses in life - some of those little hardships - are the best thing for you.
