Saturday game preview: Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Boston Bruins
Sports
The two are good friends, but Pastrnak has the edge here. The Bruins’ winger has five goals and three assists in three games against the Leafs this season. Nylander, under the gun to produce after signing his big contract, has a goal and two assists in 15 games since returning to the fold.

Need to know: Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has won his last four starts, with a 1.23 goals against average and .959 save percentage in that span. Included in that stretch was his 42nd career shutout, his 250th career win. Rask is just three victories shy of passing Tiny Thompson (252) as the Bruins’ all-time wins leader … The Bruins have the league’s third-ranked power play (28.2 per cent) and 10th-ranked penalty kill (81.4 per cent) … Both teams made minor trades with Ottawa on Friday. The Leafs acquired forward Gabriel Gagne (a third-round pick in 2015) for forward Morgan Klimchuk, who spent less than two months in the Leaf organization, having been acquired in late November for defenceman Andrew Nielsen … Boston acquired forward Paul Carey for defenceman Cody Goloubef.
