Toronto Maple Leafs vs Boston Series Betting

The playoff drought has ended in Toronto and the Maple Leafs will be facing the Boston Bruins in a first round clash between two “Original Six” teams. Check out our preview of the series betting odds and best site for betting on the Leafs vs Bruins!

The Leafs come in as the underdogs in this series against the Bruins, due in large part to their lack of success against Boston, a team they have only won one game against in the last two seasons (a win that came in a shootout). Leafs captain Phil Kessel, who was traded from Boston to Toronto, has only 3 goals in 22 games against his former team. Kessel will need to find his scoring touch and remove this black cloud that hangs over him when he plays Boston if the Leafs are to be successful.

Another factor that needs to be considered is that the pressure put on hockey players in Toronto can weigh heavily, and this young Maple Leafs squad will have to keep their composure if they want to win this series. This is especially true for starting goalie James Reimer, who has no NHL playoff experience. The last time he played in the post-season was in 2009 in the East Coast Hockey League. Reimer has been shaky heading into the playoffs, he got pulled in the last game of the regular season after giving up 4 goals on 23 shots.

“We don’t need them to be superhuman,” goalie coach Rick St. Croix said of Reimer and backup goalie Ben Scrivens. “We just need them to be themselves.
