The Maple Leafs look to continue their strong play of late as they head into Bosotn to battle their bitter rivals at the Garden.
The Toronto Maple Leafs will look for their third win in a row and seventh in their last 10 overall when they take to the road to battle the Bruins in Boston in an Atlantic division show down. The Leafs and Bruins always find a way to get up for their meetings even when they aren't competitive across the league and that is exactly what we have in this one as neither team is in a playoff position and neither will likely represent the Eastern Conference in hockey's second season. But it remains an intriguing match up as the Leafs are 6-2-2 over the last two weeks and have really started to hit their stride after it was decided James Reimer would be the full time starter and he will look for another victory on the road against Tuukka Rask and the Bruins.

Boston has had a decent start to the year sitting at 9-8-1 over their first 18 contests and in any other division it might be seen as mediocre but the Atlantic is all jumbled in together leaving the door wide open for anyone other than the division leading Canadiens. Boston is a good team but not a great one and I don't think they will be a factor come playoff time and I am not entirely sure they even qualify as they have started to regress and could be in line for an overhaul in the next year or two. The B's are 3-6-1 at home this season and to be honest I don't see them being much better than Toronto and certainly not worthy of this price and in a toss up game I am siding with the hotter team and taking a swing with the Leafs.
