A classic divisional rivalry takes place on Monday night in Toronto, when the Bruins, long the bane of Toronto’s existence, comes to Scotiabank Arena to do battle with the Maple Leafs. The home team Leafs are awfully good lately, and are further buoyed by the imminent return of their best player, centreman Auston Matthews. But Boston is no slouch. It should make for must-see TV at the start of the week.
The Bruins probably have, with apologies to the Colorado Avalanche, pound-for-pound the best top line in hockey. Patrice Bergeron is just a consummate pro and a coach’s dream. David Pastrnak is fast and totally skilled and a bargain for the team. Finally, the annoyingly-good Brad Marchand is probably the most coveted guy of the bunch, because he not only has elite-level skill, he is the perfect pest that gets under the opposition’s skin.
There are other shortcomings: Zdeno Chara is old and hurt, goalie Tuukka Rask hasn’t been good this year, but that trio for Boston is so damn effective, it can paper over a lot of the other cracks.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Leafs have scored plenty and won plenty without Matthews, which is encouraging for most people in southern Ontario. If Auston comes back and stays healthy, they just get that much deeper and more dangerous. The big youngster was on an MVP-style pace before he injured his shoulder – 16 points in 10 games, if he comes back at two thirds of that, look out Atlantic division.
The Buds sit third in the Atlantic, only because Buffalo has won an incredible nine straight games, and Tampa Bay is Tampa Bay. It would be safe to assume that the Leafs are going to be square in the playoff mix come the spring, and this match-up could be playoff preview once again (the B’s have despatched Toronto twice in the playoffs already this decade).

Free Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs NHL Prediction:
Toronto just erupted for a 6-0 win over Philadelphia, on the strength of a hat trick from depth forward Andreas Johnsson. If unheralded dudes like that are potting multiple goals, there’s no way Toronto will be stopped. It helps that backup goalie Garret Sparks played in that blowout, so Boston will be getting elite Leafs starter Fredrik Andersen.

Anything can happen whenever these two teams lock horns, but a lot of the good vibes appear to be in Toronto’s favour lately. Maybe it keeps up on Monday night.
