The Bruins and Maple Leafs have all sorts of connections due to an abundance of trades over the last decade or so.
From Phil Kessel to Tuukka Rask, there are key members of both teams that have been on the other side of the rivalry at one point in their careers. But what about behind the bench?
Who was the most recent head coach to coach both the Maple Leafs and the Bruins?
Less than 24 hours before the Maple Leafs return to the scene of last May's ill-fated Causeway St. Collapse, it was Toronto fans who wanted to bust out in a rendition of "Thank You Kessel" on Friday night.
But will they be singing a different tune on Saturday evening at the TD Garden, where the Leafs will be playing for the first time since their epic third-period...

He has yet to score a goal in 5 games but David Clarkson feels his game is coming along.
“You would obviously like the puck to go in but the team is winning and that’s all that matters,” said the Maple Leafs big free-agent acquisition this off season.
What better way to score his first as a Leaf than against the team that gave...
It certainly wasn’t good news for anybody when Adam McQuaid was lost for the game after logging just 44 seconds of ice time Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The rangy stay-at-home defenseman had skated all of two shifts with the first one resulting in a fight with Toronto tough guy Frazer McLaren with both players throwing right handed bombs at each other.
The Maple Leafs are allowing plenty of shots per game, a statistic that finally caught up to Toronto at the end of its recent road trip.
Those numbers may not be a problem, however, against a New Jersey Devils team that is averaging the fewest shots in the NHL.
David Clarkson will face his former club for the first time when the Maple Leafs go for their fifth win in six home games...
The CBC broadcast shows all the goals, which I love; it brings back the roller coaster ride of emotions that we all experienced that night.

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
It is the return to the scene of the crime.
Morally wounded after giving up a 4-1 third-period lead in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Boston Bruins in Beantown last spring, the Toronto Maple Leafs will play their first game at TD Garden since that fateful evening, one that won’t ever be completely forgotten by the...
