The Leafs face the again half of a home-and-home tonight, after a stirring win towards the Bruins on Friday. As soon as once more, they're with out Auston Matthews, hopefully for the final time. He’ll have one other 4 days to get better earlier than the Leafs’ subsequent recreation, so the earliest we are going to see him is the approaching Thursday.
Within the meantime, Toronto has to cope with a workforce they're fairly evenly matched with. Yesterday’s recreation was about as even because it will get, with shot makes an attempt tied and the sport going to extra time. Mitch Marner and his linemates obtained again on monitor in an enormous method final evening, and that's large for the Leafs, as they want all their scoring depth, particularly with out their finest participant. Now, the eye will flip to William Nylander, who has been taking part in effectively over the previous few weeks, with out the factors to indicate for it. He leads the workforce in relative shot share, and it was notable how the Komarov-Kadri-Nylander line carried out higher towards the Bruins high gamers than Komarov-Kadri-Brown (granted, within the smallest of samples).
The Bruins are very a lot a one line workforce, however that one line is totally horrifying. With Matthews, the Leafs may be capable to go energy vs energy, however with out him, they only must do their finest to outlive the Marchand-Bergeron-Pastrnak unit. With McElhinney in internet, that's much more true.
In the meantime, the Bruins obtained a stable effort out of their backup final evening, and will probably be taking part in Tuukka Rask right this moment, giving them a determined edge in aim. It’s laborious to see the Leafs as something however clear underdogs on this recreation, given the goalie matchup, however after all, that’s why they play the video games.
