Bruins at Leafs 10/19/19 - NHL Picks & Predictions

Boston is coming into the game here after picking up a loss in a shootout over the Lightning. Granted, it was a game that could have went either way, but it was one that the Bruins picked up the loss by allowing a lone goal. Outside of that mistake and the ones that both teams had to get to the shootout it was a great game by the goalies. Tukka Rask definitely was challenged in the game and that really did help the Bruins see that he has not lost a step.

The Bruins have been able to rely on David Pastrnak on the year for the goal scoring and point lead as he has 6 goals and 10 points. Brad Marchand is the Bruins player who leads the team in assist with 5. Tukka Rask has managed to get the best player award in net for the Bruins with only 1.33 goals a game, but has saved 95.7% of the shots that have been sent towards him.

Maple Leaf fans are going to look for a home win here. The last game out for the Maple Leafs was a loss to the Capitals, but it was a game that the Maple Leafs did look decent in and actually gave the Capitals a run for their money. The problem is the Maple Leafs defense, which has been suspect at times in games was beaten by the Capitals.

Auston Matthews is the player who leads the Maple Leafs in goal scoring at 7 this year. Morgan Rielly is the player who has been able to get the most assist with 9 on the year and Mitch Marner leads the Maple Leafs in points overall at 9. Frederik Andersen has managed to give up only 3.14 goals a game, but has saved only 89.3% of the shots that have been sent towards him.

The Maple Leafs defense has been fairly suspect this year. The Bruins have a decent offense that has bee able to take advantage of a lot of the problems the opponents have had, but the Bruins did face a great Lightning team in the last game that was able to put them in their place. Look for the Bruins to bounce back from that loss and take advantage of a weaker Maple Leafs defense while Rask plays great in the game to keep the Leafs out of the net. Final Score Prediction, Boston Bruins win 3-1.
