  • Stanley Cup Playoffs: Boston Bruins' dates, TV, tickets for first round series with Toronto Maple Leafs

A series that went to Game 7 a year ago will see the majority of the main players return for both clubs in the rematch.

The Boston Bruins will embark on another run in the Stanley Cup playoffs on Thursday night.

Yes, the Leafs have got "better and better and better" if the point of comparison is, say, Babcock's first season in Toronto in 2015-16, when the club was last overall and won the right to select Auston Matthews first.

"They obviously have a very established core of veterans who've had a lot of success there and kind of really set the standard for them in the way they play", said Tavares to Hockey Central. The Maple Leafs have always been a thorn in Boston's side.

After being officially eliminated from playoff contention Friday night when the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the New York Rangers 3-2 in a shootout, the Canadiens battled to a 6-5 shootout win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night at the Bell Centre to finish the season with a 44-30-8 record. Yes, Toronto is one of the league's eight best and neither of these teams deserves to be kicked out too early, but I think Boston has the advantage. It was Toronto's first playoff appearance of the salary cap era and what followed was another lost journey into the wilderness as they rebuilt the roster from the ground up over three straight miserable seasons. If the Maple Leafs are to advance to the second round for the first time since 2004, it's going to have be on the back of Frederik Andersen. "I think that just comes with age", Gardiner said.

"It's the first time in a long time we have had our full team and we're excited about that", winger Zach Hyman said. April 17 for Games 3 and 4.

"We want everyone to come out healthy".

And she did, just like we knew she would. "And for LC (Cox), she got us here, and we had to finish the job for her". Arike Ogunbowale sat in a quiet Notre Dame locker room, and there were no tears from the senior.

The Bruins also won three out of four games this season, though the last time these two teams played was back on January 12.

The Leafs haven't given their travelling show much to be cheer about since their Western Canadian trip, but this 815th meeting (regular season and playoffs) will carry some extra emotion. "Any time you have a defeat like that, it drives you to be even better each year". You pull your starter, throw a guy in there, the rest of the guys are looking at you like, "What the hell are you doing?"

"It's real simple for me". "They really can put the puck in the net". All three are coming off regular seasons where they reached career highs in points, including Brad Marchand's first career 100-point season. "You only have a certain amount that you can divvy up, and it's trying to make that all work and keep our team on the right path moving forward".

"You play smart, but you play hard, and you never take your foot off the pedal", said Gardiner, also running point on the second power-play unit.

This team should be an improvement from last season with John Tavares and Jake Muzzin in the fold plus having a couple of players gaining more experience.

"There is always concerns, but what you do is you get up and move on and try to get better", Babcock said after practice on Wednesday.
