Boston Off to 1-0 Start

In the 5-1 win on Saturday, Jake DeBrusk was the star of the show. He scored two goals and recorded an assist in the game. The Bruins scored three second period goals to break the game open. The first goal of the postseason came from John Beecher in the first period of the game.

The Bruins saw David Pastrnak record an assist in the game. He was the top scorer all season long for Boston. He finished the season with 63 assists and 47 goals. Brad Marchand was second, but had just 67 total points on the season.

The goaltender will be Jeremy Swayman once again. Swayman has been the top goalie for Boston this season. In his April 20th win, he allowed just one goal on 36 shot attempts from Toronto. He finished the regular season with a 25-10-8 record, and 2.53 goals allowed.

Offensive Struggle for Maple Leafs

The lone goal for Toronto came from David Kampf. Ryan Reaves picked up an assist in the game, along with Connor Dewar.  That’s when you know it is not a very good game for Toronto when none of the top 8 guys in scoring record a point in the game.

Auston Matthews was top all season with 69 goals and 38 assists. William Nylander was second with 58 assists and 40 goals. Third for Toronto was Mitch Marner. He played in 69 games and recorded 85 points.

The Maple Leafs will look for a better performance between the pipes from Igor Samsonov. He allowed 4 goals on just 23 shot attempts. During the regular season, the goaltender finished the season with a 23-7-8 record, as he allowed 3.13 goals per game.

Toronto Tops Boston in Game 2

The Boston Bruins have a chance to go up 2-0 in this series, but we like Toronto to bounce back and bring the heat on offense. Sure, Boston is really good defensively, but the Maple Leafs get the job done with a couple early goals in this one.

Our final bet for this game on Monday is the Toronto Maple Leafs +120 over the Boston Bruins. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your NHL Betting!
