Bruins vs. Maple Leafs 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs Odds & Game 6 Preview

By Hank Blaine

The Toronto Maple Leafs kept their season alive in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference first-round series with an upset win in Boston on Tuesday. Can they do it once more at home in Game 6 on Thursday? And will star Auston Matthews play? That part at least seems likely.

Why Bet on the Boston Bruins?

Trent Frederic scored, and Jeremy Swayman made 31 saves for Boston. Swayman had been 6-0 vs. Toronto this season, including playoffs. The Bruins were perfect on the penalty kill for the third straight game. Boston stifled three power play opportunities Toronto had in the game. The Bruins have gone 15-for-16 in shorthanded situations for 93.7% in the series.

“I think we saw an opportunity that we missed,” Swayman said. “And we’re not going to let that happen again. So the motivation is completely internal and it’s contagious in this locker room. And we’ll be a different team come Thursday.”

Why Bet on the Toronto Maple Leafs?

The Leafs came out full throttle from the first shift of Game 5 and outplayed the Bruins in every aspect of their game. Boston head coach Jim Montgomery said that “desperation” was the difference in the game.

The Leafs held a commanding 30-7 edge in shot attempts over the first 20 minutes of play, with their forecheck compounding Boston’s woes with making clean passes out of their zone.

Toronto is now 63-62-1 in playoff overtime games, including 25-27 as the road team. The Leafs have forced a Game 6 after facing a 3-1 deficit in a best-of-seven series for the seventh time in franchise history, with the two most-recent instances also coming against the Bruins (2018 & 2013).
