Berkshire Bank Hockey Night In New England: Projected Bruins-Maple Leafs Lineups


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.

Brad Marchand–Patrice Bergeron–David Pastrnak
Frank Vatrano–David Krejci–David Backes
Matt Beleskey–Ryan Spooner–Riley Nash
Tim Schaller–Dominic Moore–Jimmy Hayes

Berkshire Bank Foundation

During the 2016-2017 regular season, Berkshire Bank Foundation will donate $100 for each Bruins assist to three local non-profit organizations. Click here to see official rules.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.

Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
