This is two evenly matched teams but the spread does not indicate that. Vegas is begging you to take Toronto but do you go the the way and take Boston -1.5 or is this flawed logic?

As a Leafs fan, I really hope Im wrong here, but it almost seems like Boston has flipped the switch and figured out the way to beat Toronto. The Leafs have a hard time handling the rough bump and go style of play as Torontos offense is largely based around speed and finesse, and Toronto has had a hard time in this series rebounding after getting punched in the mouth. Toronto battled back a couple of times in game four, but after coming so close and falling short, sometimes that takes a toll on a teams psyche. The Bruins regained home ice with the win and I think they wont let it slip again, so Ill side with Boston to take game five on Friday

Bruins Daily: Bruins and Maple Leafs as advertised through four games
Neither the Bruins or Maple Leafs thought this first round series would be easy heading into their second straight postseason showdown. They were right.
The Original Six rivals head into Friday's Game 5 tied at two games apiece. They haven't disappointed their loyal supporters with their performances either.
Tuukka Rask and Frederik Andersen have made timely saves between the pipes. Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand had their shining moments with dazzling offensive performances. Charlie McAvoy, Zdeno Chara, Morgan Reilly, Nikita Zaitsev and Jake Muzzin had stellar moments patrolling the respective Boston and Toronto blue-lines.
MLHS: Game #4 Review: Boston Bruins 6 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 4
Your game in ten:
1. This game was lost in the details for the Leafs. Their energy wasn't the issue, and they generated enough quality scoring chances and possessed the puck enough to win the hockey game. For extended spells, they made the game uncomfortable on the Bruins and taxed their defense with their speed through the neutral zone and on the forecheck. It looked like they were going to take over the game numerous times -- they were skating the Bruins into the ground at various points -- only for a mistake to end up in the back of their net.
