7 p.m. ET; NHLN, CBC, CITY, NESN, NHL.TV
The Toronto Maple Leafs will try for a home-and-home sweep of the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Saturday, but they'll be without center Auston Matthews, who will miss his third straight game with an upper-body injury.
The Maple Leafs will look to extend their winning streak to four games after defeating the Bruins 3-2 in overtime at Air Canada Centre on Friday.
The Bruins have lost their past two games (0-1-1) and are 1-2-1 in their past four.

Toronto forward James van Riemsdyk had two goals and led the Maple Leafs with seven shots on goal Friday. He has three goals in his past three games.
Bruins defenseman Torey Krug extended his point streak to six games with an assist Friday. He has eight points (two goals, six assists) during the streak.
They said it
"I think getting back to the things we know how to do and do well, play within our structure and system and try to dictate how we want to play. Obviously, the games have been tight-checking and not much room out there, but those are the games you have to get really comfortable in if you want to play a long time in the spring. -- Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk on Toronto's three-game winning streak
"We have to continue to tighten up, work on our game. We are playing well, we are right there, so that's a plus. But we need to win games. We can't be giving away points like this. -- Bruins forward Brad Marchand after the loss Friday
