The Maple Leafs have been outscored in the third period 15-2 during the five- game losing streak and 38-23 overall this season.

Toronto will play the first of two straight on the road tonight. The Leafs are a solid 7-4-3 as the visiting club this season.

The Bruins will try to make it two wins in a row after posting a 6-5 victory in Monday's test at Montreal, Brad Stuart's goal with 1:48 remaining in regulation boosted Boston to the close win at the Bell Centre.
