Boston forced this game seven by winning on the road in Toronto 4-2.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Maple have already won two games on the road this series, so they should be confident in their ability to hang with the Bruins this time around as well.
Auston Matthews once again got onto the score sheet and was one of the two goal scorers in game six. He now has scored five times in this series while also racking up one assist to lead his team in points with a total of six. Morgan Rielly is leading the Maple Leafs with four assists in this series and it will be up to him to continue setting up his teammates in this all-important game seven. The Maple Leafs are averaging 2.7 goals per game in this first-round series, but will need at least three if they are going to win in Boston and move on to the next round.
The Maple Leafs defense once again let them down allowing four goals on their home ice. They are allowing an average of three goals per game, but will need to hold the Bruins under this number if they are going to win.
The Bruins should have all the confidence in the world right now as they went into a hostile Toronto an avoided elimination by picking up a road win. They may have been lackluster so far in this series at home, but all they need is one more win to survive an advance.
There is no question that Brad Marchhand has been the leader for this Bruins team. He has nine points so far in the playoffs, which leads the team. He has scored four goals, but he has also picked up five assists. That said, Marchhand will be the key for the Bruins, so if he has a productive game, they will win.
For most of this series, the defense has been good for the Bruins. They are allowing 2.3 goals per game when playing in Boston, so there is hope that their defense shows up in this game as well. Look for Boston to shutdown the Maple Leafs early and make it tough for them to score, especially in the opening period.
