The Boston Bruins (2-4-0, 3rd Northeast) know that they're facing an uphill climb as the Toronto Maple Leafs (4-0-1, 1st Northeast) (sidenote: early season stats are fun) come to TD Garden tonight.

Tim Thomas will man the pipes for Boston.

David Krejci is a game-time decision; if he does not play, Rich Peverley will center Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Caron. Nazem Kadri was recalled by Toronto as a reaction to MacArthur and Armstrong's injuries. This is Steven Kampfer's first game of the season
