BOSTON—The Leafs are in Boston for Game 5, the series tied at two games apiece. The Leafs hope to get out to a fast start, get the lead and take the rowdy TD Garden crowd out of the game.
That’s the plan, anyway. But Boston has scored first in three of the four games so far, and now the Bruins big guns are waking from their slumber.
And how pivotal is this game? When a best-of-seven series is tied 2-2, the winner of Game 5 owns an all-time series record of 205-55 (78.8 per cent), according to the NHL.
