Game 31: Toronto @ Bruins 11 WIN HOME STREAK ON THE LINE

Dec 18, 2008 7:00 PM ET
Radio: WBZ
vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (12-12-6)
  • This is the last time the Maple Leafs are scheduled to play in Boston this season, and the 4th meeting so far.
  • The Maple leafs are the last team to beat the Bruins at home, on October 23rd.
  • Marco Sturm is off LTIR and is a game-time decision for tonight's game.
  • Thomas in net.
  • The Bruins PP is up to a full 25%.  That's one out of every 4 PPs, the Bruins score.  The Maple Leafs have the 3rd-worst PK in the league right now.
  • In case you forgot, there's an 11-game home winning streak for the Bruins.
  • Phil Kessel is on a 15-game point streak.
  • The Maple Leafs can be sneaky good, and are on a bit of a tear, here.  The Bruins would do well not to let them sneak up, again.
Previous Games:
  • Game 7: Oct 23, @Bruins 2, TOR 4: Milan Lucic put Mike Van Ryn through the glass, but the Bruins let in 4 unanswered goals after the first period to lose the game.  This was the Bruins most recent home loss.
  • Game 13: Nov 6, @Bruins 5, TOR 2: Blake Wheeler scores his first career hat trick, and it was party-time in recap-land.
  • Game 18: Nov 17, Bruins 3, @TOR 2: Savard's indirect pass to Kessel on the first goal of this game was very pretty.  Versus is interviewing Peter Chiarelli when Ryder scores.  C'mon, Versus, you can do better.  Thomas absolutely STOLE this game, and rightfully had every save highlight
