Toronto Maple Leafs          

The Maple Leafs have the tough task of rebounding in a playoff match. After posting a rather weak record in their final matchups of the regular season, the Leafs must now rebound against a divisional rival. Seeing as how Toronto is 4-6 in their last 10 matchups against Boston, there’s no guarantee they’ll be able to get that ricochet. Looking over the regular season numbers, it’s clear both teams have something to work with here. Offensively the Maple Leafs get the edge since they ranked 4th overall in the NHL in scoring. Comparatively, the Bruins finished 11th overall in the league in scoring. However, Boston does get the edge on defense. This is because they were ranked as the 3rd best defense in the league while Toronto came in at 20th.

Players to Watch: Mitch Marner (26 G, 68 A, 94 PTS.), John Tavares (47 G, 41 A, 88 PTS.), and Auston Matthews (37 G, 36 A, 73 PTS.).

Boston Bruins   

The Bruins ended the regular season with a 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Now the Bruins look to open up the postseason by picking off an Atlantic Division rival. And since Boston happens to be 2-1 in their last 3 versus Toronto, it’s easy to see who the fans should take this evening. Unsurprisingly, the online NHL betting odds are sticking with Boston here. All things considered, the favoritism still offers plenty of value in taking Boston straight up here.

Players to Watch: Brad Marchand (36 G, 64 A, 100 PTS.), David Pastrnak (38 G, 43 A, 81 PTS.), and Patrice Bergeron (32 G, 47 A, 79 PTS.).
