The Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs meet for the second time this season tonight. Both teams are in a different situation than they were on Oct. 25.

Afterwards, the Leafs held a players-only meeting and have gone 4-1-1 since. In addition to Chara, the Bruins will be without top center David Krejci (lower body), who will miss his second straight game, and seventh game overall, with the injury suffered in the preseason. Toronto will look for its’ third straight win while Boston attempts to win their sixth in a row – find out which streak continues at 8 p.m. ET.
