Free NHL Selection: Saturday, February 3

Toronto and Boston face-off in Beantown
Take #14 Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs UNDER 5.5. (7 PM ET Saturday, February 3)

The Toronto Maple Leafs look to extend their winning streak to five in a row when they visit the Boston Bruins. The puck drops at 4 PM at TD Garden where the Bruins are -120 moneyline favorites. The total is 5.5.

Toronto (30-18-4, 16-10-2 road) has posted back-to-back shutout victories and allowed just three goals during its four-game run. The Maple Leafs have also dominated the recent series against the Bruins winning six straight, including both meetings this season.

Boston (30-11-6, 17-6-4 home) has lost just once in regulation in the past seven weeks but still can't shake Toronto which is chasing them for second place in the Atlantic Division. The Bruins have collected points in 19 of their last 20 games thanks in large part to goalie. Tuukka Rask, who has not lost in regulation in more than two months.

The UNDER is 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings overall and 5-2 to the low side in the past seven meetings in Boston. The Maple Leafs are 4-0-1 to the UNDER in their past five overall and 4-0-1 to the UNDER in their last five road games. The Bruins are 5-0 to the UNDER in their last five overall and past five home games. Boston is also 10-2 to the low side in their last 12 against the Atlantic Division.

The Maple Leafs are 4-0 in the past four meetings in Boston and 6-0 in the past six meetings overall.

The Bruins are 8-2 in their last 10 home games and 10-1 in their last 11 vs. the Atlantic Division. Boston is also 24-8 in its last 32 overall.
