The Boston Bruins look to get back to their winning ways Saturday night when they face the Toronto Maple Leafs at TD Garden.
The B’s had their three-game winning streak snapped Wednesday when they lost to the Washington Capitals. The Maple Leafs sit just three points behind the Bruins for third place in the Atlantic Division despite losing their last three contests.
