Maple Leafs, Bruins try to shake late-season woes in their first playoff matchup since 1974

BOSTON - The Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins will both try to shake late-season slumps when they meet in the playoffs.

The first-round series starts Wednesday night in Boston, where the Bruins have won 11 of their last 13 games against the Maple Leafs, and both teams stumbled heading into the playoffs. The Bruins lost seven of their last nine and the Maple Leafs four of five.

Both are also likely to get key scorers back from upper-body injuries — Nathan Horton for Boston and Tyler Bozak for Toronto. Horton missed five games and Bozak sat out two.

Game 2 is Saturday night in Boston before the series shifts to Toronto for games next Monday and Wednesday nights.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
