Keys To Game One


With the Maple Leafs-Bruins series set to start tonight (7pm CBC, TSN1050Radio), Leafs TV executive producer Mark Askin provides his five keys to the game:

1. Faceoffs –  Boston Bruins best in NHL and Leafs best (Tyler Bozak) may not be able to take any. Constantly starting without the puck is a huge disadvantage especially on special teams.

2. Leafs Physical Play – Can the Leafs get any advantage over a less than normally physical Bruins team.

3. Chara vs. Kessel –  It’s the matchup of an elite offensive player vs. the best shutdown defender in the game.

4. Carlyle Matchups – It’s a guarantee. How well will he be able to get what he wants.

5. Scoring chances – Will the Bruins get chances against a team that usually allows them. Boston with second best shots on net per game (32.4) against a Leafs team who have routinely needed Reimer to bail them out of lazy defensive habits.
