Analysis and forecast for the second game of the Boston Bruins – Toronto Maple Leafs series (04/23/2024)

The intrigue of this series is on the surface. The NHL’s leading scorer, Toronto’s Auston Matthews, will try to find a flaw in Boston’s standard defense, which relies on the reliable play of defenseman Charlie McAvoy and the goaltending team of Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark.

Last season, Boston played an offensive style and won the President’s Cup, but was eliminated from the first round of the playoffs by hard-working Florida (3-4). The opponent, with the help of a sticky defense, chained the offensive potential of the Bruins, and in the struggle for power they turned out to be unsustainable.

Boston head coach Jim Montgomery apparently reconsidered his views and changed a lot this season. The emphasis in the scheme is clearly shifted towards reliable defense, rather than flashy attacks involving defenders. The Bruins offense lowered its scoring but improved its defense.

In addition, Boston has a well-established game in uneven lineups: converting the majority (22.2%) and neutralizing the numerical advantage (82.5%). In the playoffs, the success of teams largely depends on the effectiveness of these indicators.

In turn, Toronto plays with an offensive style this season. The Maple Leafs were incredibly efficient on offense, scoring 303 goals during the regular season. Only Colorado has more, and even then by one goal.

As for defense, Toronto allowed 263 goals in the regular season (for comparison: Boston – 226). Maple Leafs goaltenders Ilya Samsonov and Joseph Wall were under great pressure in almost every game, and as a result, the goaltenders often made mistakes. But Auston Matthews, who scored 107 points in the pass-and-goal system, carried the team.

In the first game of the playoffs, Toronto’s offensive potential was powerless against Boston’s well-coordinated defense. Montgomery’s team played effectively. Of Samsonov’s 24 shots on goal, the Blue and Whites reaped dividends in the form of five goals. In turn, the Maple Leafs’ 36 shots resulted in a goal and Matthews was well covered.

Boston has almost everything to win the Stanley Cup. Powerful attack, reliable defense and mutual understanding. Toronto’s brilliant offense will get stuck in the Bruins’ defensive net, and the Bears have already shown in the opener how they can spot mistakes (5-1). We assume that Boston will win with a handicap (-1.5). The odds of this outcome are 2.64.

Prediction and bets for the NHL playoff game Boston – Toronto on April 23, 2024

Toronto is too easy for the playoffs. This is an offensive team that is good with minimal pressure, but Boston’s level of aggression in the first game of the series immediately revealed all the underlying problems with such an open game. The Bruins are on the right track and will most likely beat the Maple Leafs again. We believe in the victory of the Bears with a handicap (-1.5).

Tender: Boston victory with a handicap (-1.5) in 2.64.
