The Toronto Maple Leafs (9-3-1) are in first place overall in the National Hockey League while the Boston Bruins (4-7-0) sit in twenty-ninth. Saturday night, Boston will get another chance to right that wrong when they take to the ice against the Leafs at Toronto’s Air Canada Center, for the second meeting of the season between these two division rivals. Boston won the first game 6-2 at home on October 20, 2011. Chris Kelly scored the game winning goal while four of his teammates, Andrew Ference, Zdeno Chara, Milan Lucic and Tyler Seguin had three points each.
Since that win in Boston, the Bruins have gone 1-3-0. However, the Black and Gold will enter the contest after a convincing 5-3 win over the Ottawa Senators. It was, arguably, the first game of the season where the Bruins played like the championship team fans grew accustomed to watching last season.
Bruin Tyler Seguin continues to have a super sophomore season. He leads the club in points with 11. The 19-year-old is tied for the team lead in goals (4) with Milan Lucic and is at the head of the class in assists with seven. Seguin’s plus-8 also leads the Bruins and has him in fifth place in the NHL.
