The Boston Bruins did not have the best track record against the Toronto Maple Leafs during the regular season, but that didn’t matter Thursday night after the B’s locked up a thrilling 5-1 win over the Leafs in Game 1 on Thursday night.

Boston used the last few days to tighten up its game, and it showed Thursday, as the team played physical on both sides of the puck for a full 60 minutes.
