While Boston opened as the favorite to win this series it was foolish of some to say that Toronto had little or no chance to win. As was demonstrated during the regular season the Maple Leafs have plenty of firepower and are actually a more dynamic team than the Bruins. But in game two Boston will have the motivational edge in a near must win situation. Indeed, the Bruins can’t afford to go to Toronto for games three and four down 0-2 in the series.
