Leafs Kick Off Post-Season Tonight
The Toronto Maple Leafs begin their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Bruins tonight in Boston.
It's the first time these two teams are meeting since Toronto's memorable collapse in Game 7 of the 2013 Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
The Leafs let a 4-1 lead slip in an eventual 5-4 overtime loss that spelled the end of their post-season.
Elsewhere, Steven Stamkos is expected to be in Tampa Bay's lineup tonight as the Lightning host the New Jersey Devils in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference playoff series.

Stamkos missed the final three games of the regular season with a lower-body injury but participated in Tampa's practice yesterday.
He had 86 points in 78 games for the Lightning this season.
