(I’m away this week on a long awaited hockey road trip. So this is my preview with no knowledge of any Leafs’ happenings after Friday, January 25 @ 2:15pm. Head on over to A Cup A Bruin for a day of, Boston Bruins based take on the game.)
Saturday night the Black & Gold will be in town to take on the Leafs. The last time the two teams met, the Bruins steamrolled the Leafs. It was sick. An 8-0 shutout win for Tim Thomas – potentially his last regular season, regulation time shutout win – at TD Garden. Most folks stopped watching by the end of the first.
At least it wasn’t as bad as the December 26, 1991 game when the Leafs went into the Igloo and had the Pittsburgh Penguins wallop them 12-1. (That game was hilarious and I still have it on VHS… because of the Mark Recchi factor.) Ahem.
