Maple Leafs Get Roasted Over Potential Matchups In NHL’s 24-Team Proposal — NESN.com

The last decade-plus or so haven’t been particularly kind to the Toronto Maple Leafs. For one, they’ve made the postseason just four times since reaching the second round in 2004, and all four appearances resulted in first-round exits. Three of said exits have been to the Boston Bruins (2013, 2018 and 2019), with the series ending each time in a Game 7 at TD Garden.
