The Bruins and Leafs series start tonight with the Bruins hoping to take game 1, they will need to take care of these 4 key things to get the win.

5 keys for the Bruins if they want to beat Maple Leafs in first round

The Bruins will have to win net front battle and deliver more shots on net as they sat 26th in the league in 5 on 5 shot attempts per game with 54.41 this season.

There is no denying that the Bruins have an advantage in net as both their goalies are much better than what the Leafs have but they will need them to be at the top of their game if they plan on winning the series.

They will also need to take advantage of their special teams on both ends. The PK has been stellar this season which will be a great help shutting down the Leafs stacked powerplay but the Bruins PP will need to step up as they have struggled lately and cannot afford to miss on key opportunities against the Leafs.

A major part of beating the Leafs will be if the Bruins are able to shut down one of their top two lines. The Leafs have a stacked first two lines and if the Bruins can shut down at least one of those lines, they will have a much easier time taking care of business.
