Bruins even up series

Boston rolled to a 4-1 victory Saturday night in Game 2 at home versus Toronto to even the series at a game apiece. The Bruins grabbed a 3-0 lead through two periods to assume full control. Charlie Coyle put the hosts on the board 4:44 in on a goal assisted by David Backes. Brad Marchand made it a 2-0 game later in the first period on assists by David Pastrnak and Torey Krug. Midway through the second period, an unassisted goal from Danton Heinen pushed the Boston advantage to three goals. Toronto cut its deficit to 3-1 with 9:16 remaining, but the Bruins put it away with 4:57 left as a Patrice Bergeron power play goal pushed it back to 4-1. Marchand and Matt Grzelcyk drew assists on the score. Tuukka Rask recorded 30 saves on 31 shots in the winning effort.

Maple Leafs struggle in Game 2

Toronto trailed 3-0 through two periods Saturday night before briefly mounting a comeback attempt in the third period, but ultimately fell 4-1. Nazem Kadri made it a 3-1 game midway through the third on a goal assisted by Travis Dermott and William Nylander. But the Bruins put it away later in the third to even up the series. The Maple Leafs registered 31 shots in the contest led by Auston Mathews with five. Frederik Andersen had 37 saves on 41 shots in the defeat.

NHL Betting Trends

Boston

The Bruins are 5-2 in their last seven road games. Boston is 2-7 in its last nine meetings in Toronto.

Toronto

The Maple Leafs are 5-1 in their last six Monday games. Toronto is 38-17 in its last 55 games as a home favorite.

Prediction:

Toronto's fans will be rocking for this game against the very disliked Bruins, but there will also be pressure on its roster to produce and get the series lead back. Boston looked fantastic in Game 2 and really slowed down the Maple Leafs' stars up front. I think the Bruins will continue that tonight and send those fans home disappointed. Roll with Boston against as the small dog.
