7 p.m. ET; NHLN, CBC, SN360, NESN, NHL.TV

The Game

The Toronto Maple Leafs will look to tie their record for longest road winning streak to begin a season when they visit the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Saturday.

The Maple Leafs, who will try to extend their overall winning streak to four games, are eyeing their seventh straight road victory to start 2018-19, which would tie the Toronto record set in 1940-41. The Maple Leafs and Nashville Predators (7-0-0) are the last remaining unbeaten road teams in the NHL.

The Bruins, who have alternated wins and losses for the past six games, have not lost consecutive games in regulation this season.

Goalie Jaroslav Halak will start for Boston; he's 4-1-2 with a 1.96 goals-against average and .936 save percentage in nine games (eight starts) this season.

Players to watch

Maple Leafs center John Tavares has five points (two goals, three assists) in a four-game point streak.

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron has five points (one goal, four assists) in his past four games and is three goals away from 300 in his NHL career.
