Well kids. It is official, we are dancing with Boston in Round #1.
While many fans were dreaming of a ‘better match up’ with Tampa, it will be our arch nemesis from Beantown that we play starting on Thursday Night.
The Maple Leafs are looking to take care of some Playoffs demons (do not pretend you are over it) versus the Bruins and will be in for a tough opponent.
Here is the Schedule for the entire Eastern Conference.
Paul Hendrick breaks down the history of series versus the Bruins.
Leafs will meet Bruins for the 14th time ever in a post season series and for just the 4th time since 1969.
The 2 teams are 34-34-1 in 13 series played. Leafs last beat Boston in the playoffs in 1959. It served as a launching point for 4 Cup wins in the next decade. #tmltalk

2013 is a long time ago.
And yet it still feels way too fresh for my liking. Time to take care of some demons.
Leafs win the series. 4-2.
