Tuukka Rask Tyler Bozak Boston Bruins Toronto Maple Leafs NHL

The Boston Bruins will look to extend their win streak against the Toronto Maple Leafs to five games when the two Original Six clubs meet at the TD Garden in Boston Tuesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Bruins are 5-2 SU in their last seven games.
  • UNDER has hit in 15 of Toronto’s last 21 games in January.
  • The Leafs are winless in 13 games versus the Atlantic Division this season.

The Bruins have won all three meetings with the Leafs so far this season and won their final contest last season by a score of 2-1 via a shootout. Online shop Bovada presently has the Bruins as gaudy -185 faves on home ice with the Leafs at +155. The total is sitting at 5 goals with OVER -135 and UNDER +105.

The B’s sit seventh in the East with 57 points but posted a 6-2 loss to the surging Anaheim Ducks in their last game before the All-Star break. Special teams have been the name of the game in Boston as the Bruins own the league’s best power play unit (25.9 percent) and fifth-best penalty killing unit (84.4 percent).

The Leafs aren’t good in either of those categories and don’t particularly excel in any stat as the team is even with the Columbus Blue Jackets with 43 points at the bottom of the East. The Leafs have lost four-straight games and nine of 10 heading into the break.

With the Leafs in rebuild mode and seemingly content in gunning for one of Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine or Jesse Puljujarvi in the draft, they remain instant fade material night in, night out.
