October 25th, 2014 - Boston Bruins (4-5-0) at Toronto Maple Leafs (3-3-1)
The Boston Bruins head to Toronto where they are coming off two tough losses against the Islanders; one the game, and the other, the loss of top D-man Zdeno Chara for at least the next several weeks. With Boychuk traded several weeks ago and Chara down, the Bruins right now are in a tough spot defensively. The Bruins have depth though and they will need these kids to step up, ESPECIALLY Dougie Hamilton who is now in his 3rd season. Trotman will be in the lineup tonight playing his 3rd career game.
Big early season divisional matchup between two sturggling teams...should be fun.
Julien does what I fear most is sit back and let the leafs come at them , This one could get real ugly fast. Chara out hurts but not as much as the coaching staffs system that they have been playing so far this season. Bruins forwards need to play a strong aggressive Disciplined fore-checking game. We haven't seen that so far Bruins forwards are staying high and over using the point killing IMO any hopes of a bruin offense that has to stop tonight Go Bruins
