Boston Bruins Analysis

The primary thrust of the Bruins’ offensive attack is through the supreme efforts of David Pastrnak. His offensive prowess, which is demonstrated by 47 goals (dependent on the word ‘ranked’) and 63 assists, has placed him among the top forwards in the league. He constantly demonstrates unparalleled goal scoring abilities and playmaking which makes it impossible for Marc Frost to rest assured of their defense against Boston. Along with him, his mates Brad Marchand and Charlie Coyle also step in the ice with their threat of dangling and raising up any defensive tactics that Maple Leafs may choose to use.

On the defensive side, the Bruins rely on goaltender Jeremy Swayman and his stellar performance in the season that boasts a .916 save percentage and a 2.53 goals-against average. But it is his savvy ability to cover the net which instills confidence in Boston to play their ‘A-Game’ in the offensive zone as they are sure of their back line, at all times.

Toronto Maple Leafs Analysis

In response, the Toronto team boasts an attack headed by William Nylander and John Tavares whose combined goals add up to nearly one hundred already this season. These guys will employ their great playmaking skills to shuffle the Bruins’ defense tactics and also seek out and take advantage of any feelers for weakness in the B’s armor.

Defensively-wise, the core of the team will be played by the goalie Ilya Samsonov. For instance, to counter that, his 3.13 goals-against average has been surpassed by his heroic saves that most of the time are what keeps Toronto in the game. The task to perform at his best for keeping the Bruins’s unfairly offensive lineup at bay will be up to him.
