The Boston Bruins (14-9-4) and the Toronto Maple Leafs (20-8-0) meet at TD Garden on Saturday evening.

The Bruins have to face another seriously difficult game prior to taking on the Maple Leafs, with a road trip to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday evening. Their last result prior to that was a 5-0 beating on the road at the Florida Panthers on Tuesday evening. Few predictions would have envisaged such a big loss.

The Bruins are currently only averaging 2.59 Goals per Game, which puts them down in a lowly 27th position in the overall NHL standings. Defensively they are allowing just 2.56 Goals per Game, which puts them an excellent 2nd overall. On an individual basis, David Pastrnak has 19 goals for the Bruins, while Patrice Bergeron has registered 17 assists so far.

The Maple Leafs are on home-ice against the Detroit Red Wings prior to going to Boston. Their last result was a 4-3 OT win on the road at the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday evening, which extended their winning run to five games. Auston Matthews scored twice in the win, including the decisive OT goal.

The Maple Leafs are averaging 3.64 Goals per Game, which leaves them tied 2nd overall in the NHL standings. Defensively they have allowed 2.61 Goals per Game, which places them 5th overall. John Tavares has scored 17 goals to date for the Maple Leafs, while Mitch Marner has contributed 33 assists.

Current form has to make the Maple Leafs the tips on the Money Line odds in this game, particularly with the Bruins facing such a stern test at the Lightning just a couple of days earlier.
