The Bruins look to sweep the season series with Toronto on Monday night.

The Boston Bruins (41-27-3) will face the Toronto Maple Leafs (32-32-8) at the TD Garden on Monday night.

The Bruins are only 4-6-0 in their last 10 outings, but have had plenty of success against Toronto this season. Boston will be trying to sweep the six-game season series for the first time in 20 years on Monday. The Maple Leafs are only 3-6-1 over the past 10 games but have won their last two games.

The Bruins will be looking to solve Toronto goalie James Reimer before the final minute of the game. In the past two wins, Reimer has stopped 63 of 65 shots before the last minute. The Maple Leafs won't have Joffrey Lupul or Mike Brown because of injuries. Lopul is second on the team in scoring (25 goals, 7 points). Brown has four points and 60 penalty minutes in 44 games this season. Boston will not have Nathan Horton, who has scored 17 goals, and possibly will not have Rich Peverley, who has 9 goals and 38 points.
