Saturday NHL playoff action features the Toronto Maple Leafs battling the Boston Bruins at TD Garden.
The Toronto Maple Leafs were looking for a road win at TD Garden to open their first round series with the Boston Bruins but both ends of the ice struggled in a 5-1 defeat on Thursday.

The Maple Leafs only goal was a first period tally off the stick of Zach Hyman off of assists from Connor Brown and Morgan Rielly. Frederik Andersen was kept busy in the Toronto nets with 40 shots with five goals allowed.
The Bruins received power play goals from Brad Marchand, David Backes and David Krejci with David Pastrnak and Sean Kuraly also finding the back of the net. Pastrnak and Torey Krug also supplied Boston with a pair of helpers each and that support was more then enough for Tuukka Rask who recorded 26 saves in the win.
Over is 7-0-1 in Maple Leafs last 8 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game and over is 3-0-1 in Maple Leafs last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and Maple Leafs are 0-4 in their last 4 Conference Quarterfinals games. Over is 3-0-4 in Bruins last 7 home games and Bruins are 0-4 in their last 4 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game and under is 1-0-3 in Bruins last 4 Conference Quarterfinals games. Home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings and Maple Leafs are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings and under is 6-2-2 in the last 10 meetings.
The under and Maple Leafs have been consistently in the money in this series but I’m looking for another Boston win right now and will update…
