Result: Loss
This is a 2* play on BOS.

Here is what I said prior to Game 1: "The Bruins have been historically one of the most successful teams in history in the NHL Playoffs. That includes recent history as well as long term. The Leafs on the other hand are notorious for their futility in the playoffs. Boston has owned the Leafs, sweeping the season series and winning seven straight meetings dating back to January of 2023. The most important factor in a playoff series is almost always goaltending, and the Leafs starter Ilya Samsonov has allowed 11 goals on 52 shots in his last two starts. He ranks 38th in the 32 team league with a GAA of 3.18. The Bruins starter Jeremy Swayman ranks in the Top 10 in GAA (2.53) and Top 5 in save percentage (.916). Boston is tougher, better defensively and built for success in the post-season." It became immediately clear that the Leafs have goaltending issues, and it's unlikely that they can correct that overnight.
