So It Will Be Bruins vs Maple Leafs In The First Round. Here Are The Keys To The Series.
Last season, the Bruins didnt lose a game to the Maple Leafs. This season they won 3 out of 4. In their last ten meetings, the Bruins are 9-1.
The last time the Bruins played the Maple Leafs in the playoffs was 1974...and the Bruins swept them. I think its safe to say that not only are the Bruins a better team, they are in the Leafs heads.
And I dont give a shit that the Bruins have lost 7 of their last 9 games. The Leafs have lost 4 of their last 6. They have been just as sucky as of late. The bottom line is, a sucky Bruins team is better than a sucky Leafs team.
On top of all that, the media is going to be a shit storm up there in Toronto. That team hasnt been to the Stanley Cup Playoffs since 2004. Their goalie, James Reimer, has never even played in the post season before. This dude is going to be more of a headcase than Roberto Luongo.
This team is going to fold like a friggin house of cards in the middle of a hurricane.
