Teams: Toronto Maple Leafs at Boston Bruins
Records: Toronto 32-32-8 (72 Points) , Boston 41-27-3 (85 Points)
Location: TD Garden , Boston, Massachusetts
Time: 7:00 P.M. (EST)
Last Game: Maple Leafs 3 , Ottawa Senators 1 ……. Flyers 2 , Bruins 3 (SO)
Tonight’s Lineup (Subject To Change):
Scratches– ….. Mike Mottau, Joe Corvo
Nathan Horton (Concussion) – Boston’s top right winger remains sidelined with a concussion he suffered back on January 21. Number eighteen has made regular appearances at TD Garden during home games and has begun to ride the stationary bicycle.
Rich Peverley (MCL) – Peverley will continue to sit as he rehabs an injury to his right MCL. The good news here is that Peverley has begun skating on his own.
Tuukka Rask (Groin) — Rask will remain sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks with a lower abdomen/groin injury.
Last Time We Met: Bruins 5 , Maple Leafs 4
– The last time these two Northeast division rivals made acquaintances was back on March 6 when the Black and Gold took home a 5-4 victory at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. Boston has taken all five of the meetings between these two teams this season by a combined score of 28-10.
Prediction: After pulling out a much-needed victory against the Flyers on Saturday, one would like to believe that the B’s can come out with a fire on Monday as they look to build some momentum for the post-season. Look for Tyler Seguin and David Krejci to lead Boston to a big-time win on TD Garden ice.
Maple Leafs 2 , Bruins 5
