    Default GDT #44: BOS @ TOR JAN 12 HNIC - Leafs Nation a Nervous Wreck



    Looking up and down those matchups, the Bruins seem to have one big advantage and that's the ageless Chara still being a stud while the aging Hainsey is just not hacking it in that kind of role anymore. The Bruins' biggest disadvantage seems to be that they're a one line time, or maybe one and a half line team.


    The Bruins aren't the dominant possession team they were last year, but they're still great defensively at even strength (and on the PK), while their PP is absolutely deadly.

    This is one of those games where you hope that the refs would continue what they've done all year and put their whistles away.....but I'm guessing just for tonight they won't.


    Freddy being out is not a great thing, but given how poor he is against Boston it might not be that big a deal.

    I think a lot of the boorangles mediocre possession comes from that span of catestrophic injuries.

    It's pretty much guaranteed the Bruins will get more pps than the Leafs. They've got the NHL officiating in their back pocket.

    It will be interesting to see how that fourth line performs now that Moore got sent down. I suspect not gud.

    A healthy Boston team will give this team fits. Not confident with Hutch starting tonight either. I appreciate Zeke’s positivity here and hoping he’s right, for me I feel like were getting blown out tonight

    The only real worry I have about Boston is whether the Leafs pk can withstand the refs.

    the leafs and boston are 7-7 this year and last, including the playoffs.

    and that's with boston getting a decisive edge in goaltending (.911 to .897).

    not sure what "positivity" has to do with that.

    Meh it's the truth. Boston is the most penalized team in the league and we are the least penalized. That rarely plays out when we play regardless of what's happening on the ice though.

    I see the excuse to a 1st round exit is already being planted.

    I assume the second will be blame Nylander, DAMN greedy Swede!

    Basically we just need to stop Pastrnak putting up video game numbers on us and we should be good.

    Weird, it's not what I said about them knocking us out last year is it?

    Bruins pounding chests and getting pumped up in hallway prior to warmups in Toronto.
