Stream Hockey Night in Canada games on Saturday
Leafs spar with Bruins for first time since playoff heartbreaker
Hockey Night in Canada is featuring two games on Saturday night, each a dual between division rivals. CBC Hamilton has links for what promises to be a pair of bitterly contested NHL matches.
Toronto Maple Leafs at Boston Bruins — 6:30 p.m. ET
The Boston Bruins should be happy to still be in the same division as the Toronto Maple Leafs after realignment placed both teams in the Atlantic Division.
The Bruins seek a 10th win in 11 regular-season meetings against the Maple Leafs on Saturday night when the teams meet for the first time since Boston's dramatic Game 7 victory in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
Vancouver Canucks at Los Angeles Kings — 10 p.m. ET
The Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks have developed a rivalry after meeting in two of the last four postseasons. Now they are division rivals once again.
These teams meet as Pacific Division opponents for the first time since 1997-98 when their five-game season series opens Saturday night in Los Angeles.
Vancouver (11-5-2) captured the final five Northwest Division titles before joining an expanded Pacific that has been the NHL's most competitive division so far with five teams totaling at least 20 points.
The game starts at 10 p.m. ET. Click here to stream it.
