Game 1 was a dominant win for the Maple Leafs who caught a flat-flooted Bruins team uncharacteristically unprepared. Game 2 was a classic Big Bad Bruins affair, dominated physically by Boston. With the series all square at a win apiece, what do we expect in Game 3 tonight in Toronto?

The Pick: TOR (-115) via Sports Interaction
Though the Leafs are without third-line centre Nazem Kadri and thus some of their depth is compromised, perhaps the fact that they are favoured in Game 3 is instructive. We’re expecting the Leafs to return to the fast-paced, high-energy game they showed in the opener and are willing to disregard the out of control nature of the equalizer.

Also, those who questioned the form of coach Mike Babcock’s team heading into the post season were overlooking the fact that he was getting his team to play a style that would thrive against the Bruins.

It did in Game 1 and in front of a fired up home Scotiabank Arena crowd, we expect more of the same tonight.
