The Bruins' defense was sure impressive in the last game and overall this season they are giving up only 2.5 goals per game. In this game the Bruins are going to lockdown here, and that is going to be the difference. The Maple Leafs offense is going to really struggle to get any type of offense going here, and that is going to be the difference as Boston is going to get the job done. Back the Bruns on the money line.
