Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs - 4/12/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs - 4/12/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Boston Bruins snapped their three-game losing streak in dominant fashion on Saturday night.

The former Boston fourth-liner will forever be remembered in Boston for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins, when he finished his shift with a broken leg after blocking an Evgeni Malkin slap shot from about 15 feet away.

That's not without reason. Still, Boston would have the number three seed in the East and that would pit them against the Maple Leafs in the first round. They'll likely be forced to fill the losses from within the organization given the limited salary cap available after the trio of sophomores get inked to new contracts. "In saying all that, they believe they're going to win".

Cassidy is intrigued by the Bruins' match up with the Maple Leafs.

The Bruins were one of the most consistent teams in the National Hockey League from mid-November on. The Bruins are a deeper team and much better in 5-on-5 play.

If the Bruins lose to the Panthers in any fashion, Boston will finish second in the division and face the Leafs.

Nazem Kadri, one of just five players remaining on Toronto's roster from 2013, remembers thinking his 4-1 goal at 5:29 of the third was going to be enough for the Leafs to move on.

This season, his work was pretty important. The depth offense the two provide has acted like a safety net while helping the Maple Leafs win games when the team's younger players have been in slumps. Gionta's clearing attempt got through the legs of Max McCormick at the Bruins' blue line, Heinen collected it in the neutral zone, picked up Donato to make it a 2-on-1, and then hit the far side from the right circle to make it 3-1. He scored a power-play goal to tie the lone game which the Bruins won against Toronto this year, and then in the final meeting he had a hand in all four of Toronto's goals in a 4-3 win at home.

Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star wrote about how the game against the Nashville Predators was the Leafs' preview of what to expect in the playoffs.

Clearly, the Bruins have had trouble with Marner this year. Had the game been played in January, the Panthers could have completed such a feat.

For the second consecutive season, the young Toronto Maple Leafs have made the postseason at a time the club needs to make the most of their playoff opportunity. He finished the season with 35 goals, a career high, 45 assists, a career high for 80 points, a career high. They have a game against the Sabres at home against the Sabres on Saturday and by the time that game is played, they could very well be eliminated from the playoffs as the Flyers have a home game against the lowly Rangers earlier in the day.

James van Riemsdyk would also fit in this category, as he scored 11 power-play goals with nine power-play assists on the year.

But where Toronto might wreak havoc is when it has the man advantage.

Auston Matthews' place on this list may go without saying, but there's truly no player more risky than the 20-year-old star. He continues to show that he can improve every year and at 21 years old he is averaging basically a point per game. Ottawa has gone above the number in six of its previous eight games against Atlantic Division opponents and is 12-6 O/U in its last 18 contests against teams with winning records. A concussion and a shoulder injury limited him to just the 62 games played, but his impact on the ice is undeniable.
