Saturday Night Hockey:  Bruins vs Maple Leafs

The Boston Bruins are looking to rebound from their first loss in regulation at home on Thursday when they will face the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Garden tonight.  Boston could not get anything going and nothing was getting passed Seattle’s goalie Martin Jones with 27 saves.  Even the red-hot David Pastrnak, who had a hat trick against the Ducks of Anaheim the other night, could not muster up any offense. 

Tonight, though, the Bruins are looking to get back on track as they face their rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs.  Toronto is ranked second in the Eastern Division with a 26-10-7 record, so this game won’t be as easy as the Anaheim beat down last Sunday. 

I felt there was a belief the whole time that we were gonna come back. The biggest difference I noticed from previous games was in the third period we didn’t have the charge in us, so that just tells me our batteries are low.

That’s what I thought, too.  The Bruins just looked and played sloppy, which Seattle gladly took advantage of Boston’s miscues.  Hopefully the Bs are now refreshed and ready to take on the Maple Leafs tonight at the TD Garden as they — hopefully — get back on track and get another victory in the win column.

Puck drop is expected at 7:00pm EST on NESN.
