NHL Picks Boston Bruins vs Toronto Maple Leafs 04/21/2018

Game Five in the playoff series between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs takes place at TD Garden on Saturday evening.

The Bruins led the series 2-1 going into Thursday evening’s game at the Air Canada Centre, the result of which has an obvious bearing on this encounter.  The Maple Leafs won Game Three 4-2 on home-ice, but the victory owed much to some fine goaltending from Frederik Andersen.

During the regular season, the Maple Leafs were the dominant team with three wins in four meetings, including a 4-1 victory at TD Garden back in November.  If they won on Thursday evening, the momentum might just be with them and this might be the game where they can secure that crucial win on the road.

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs
