Game Thread - Toronto Maple Leafs vs Boston Bruins

Jared Wickerham

Once again we're faced with the question of who we'd rather be upset.

Can James Reimer pull off another miracle?

It's an odd feeling to be cheering for the Maple Leafs, but when the opponent is the Boston Bruins, it's pretty easy.

A lot of Habs fans are likely on the fence about who they'd rather lose this series, but think of it this way: Toronto has zero chance at a Stanley Cup. They're playing way better than anyone expected, but the moment Reimer falters for an instant, they're gone. They don't have the defense to insulate him.

Boston on the other hand, is in their Stanley Cup window. The won 2 years ago, they could win again. Last year they got Halaked by Braden Holtby while completely outplaying the Capitals in every way. Having that happen to them again would be HILARIOUS.

Sure, Leafs fans would be obnoxious about winning a playoff round, but who cares? You want the Leafs to win a round, or the Bruins to make the finals? The East is looking pretty weak, Boston is very strong. Hopefully they get taken down by luck again.
