It’s NHL playoff time and two Original Six teams will add another chapter to a storied history between bitter rivals.
Shut out in their last two games, the Toronto Maple Leafs hope that a visit from rival Ottawa on Tuesday will help boost the offence. For a team relying on only one legitimate scorer, the rest of the forward group is looking to make life difficult for the opposition goaltenders, something they were unable to do against Tim Thomas and Henrik Lundqvist in back-to-back 2-0 losses to Boston and the New York Rangers, respectively.
Tim Thomas earned his second shutout of the season, turning aside 20 shots as the Boston Bruins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-0 at TD Bank Garden on Thursday night.
