After a win last night in Carolina the Maple Leafs go north up the east coast to Boston; long time rival, and their only playoff opponent in the past decade. Decade. The Bruins are not the same team that dominated the regular season and went to multiple Stanley Cup finals in past years. They now could very could be on a decline to mediocrity as the Maple Leafs make the climb out of the same level.

Not much news has come out since the Leafs played last night. We will have Reimer out in net again and the team is playing well in front of him. I think we can take the Bruins down, let Reimvember continue.
