There aren’t too many teams hotter than the Bruins (10-6) right now. They’ve won five straight games, moving all the way up to No. 3 on the Stanley Cup futures market (9/1). However, top-line centre David Krejci (three goals, seven assists in 10 games) is unavailable Wednesday with an undisclosed lower-body injury.
That might not matter much against the perpetually rebuilding Leafs (8-5-2). Toronto has played better as of late. They won five of their last seven since dropping a 4-1 decision to Boston (–108 away) on October 25.
In the nightcap, the Ducks (10-3-3) lost their past three games in extra time, but they’re still four points ahead of the Kings (8-4-3) in the Pacific Division. That being said, the Kings are 10/1 to win the Cup, and the Ducks are 12/1. Right wing Corey Perry (flu) will be eligible to play for Anaheim, but the Kings will be short on defensemen if Robyn Regehr (undisclosed) doesn’t return to action.
