Toronto FC return to league action on Saturday against New York Red Bulls but the Reds will be without their most influential player, midfielder Michael Bradley, who has now left to join up with the United States squad for their pre World Cup training camp. After a difficult run in the league, TFC managed to advance to the final of the Amway Canadian Championship in Vancouver on Wednesday night. Despite losing 2-1 against the Whitecaps at BC Place after extra time, Toronto won the tie on penalties. The Form: Toronto FC have lost three straight in Major League Soccer, and their home form has been poor, losing two of their three games at BMO Field this season against Colorado Rapids and New England Revolution. Defensively, the Reds have had some shaky moments in their last couple of league games, conceding four goals at Dallas and home to New England. Ryan Nelsens team will be buoyed by their progression in the Canadian Championship: Its a game we really wanted to win," said the coach following the match in Vancouver. "No matter how we got through, we got through. When you play these games and they go to extra time, it can be a real positive when you come out with a win. Guys have played together now, they will harden up and any 90 minutes they experience in the future will be a walk in the park compared to this." The Big Question: Will Toronto FCs players have enough gas left in the tank? With the Amway Canadian Championship semifinal in Vancouver going all the way to penalty kicks on Wednesday night, there will be some tired legs within TFCs squad. However, Toronto FC had a bye weekend in MLS leading up to the match in Vancouver and have only played seven league matches so far this year, so the effect of a lengthy cup tie may not be as negative as it could have been if the schedule had been more difficult. The Lineup: Bradley Orr partnered Doneil Henry in the centre of defence in Vancouver but veteran defender Steve Caldwell is likely to return to the lineup against the Red Bulls. Mark Bloom and Justin Morrow are set to return in the fullback positions, although Nick Hagglund has impressed this year whenever he has been given an opportunity. With Bradley gone, Torontos midfield could see two young Canadians paired together with the potential for Kyle Bekker to play alongside Jonathan Osorio, although Osorio has also been played by Nelsen on the left side of midfield recently. Draft pick Daniel Lovitz was impressive when he came on as a substitute for his Toronto FC debut in Vancouver on Wednesday. Jermain Defoe was left on the bench against the Whitecaps but should be back in the team on Saturday. Ryan Nelsen will be hoping Defoe is motivated to prove a point after being left out of Englands World Cup squad. The Opposition: New York Red Bulls won the Supporters Shield last year, finishing with the best record in MLS during the regular season. Mike Petkes team have had a mixed season so far. They got off to a slow start, failing to win in their first six matches, but since then things have picked up, and they were unbeaten in four - with three wins - prior to losing a crazy game at home to Chicago Fire last weekend 5-4. Whenever the Red Bulls visit, much of the attention is focused on France star Thierry Henry, but it is his attacking partner Bradley Wright-Phillips who has been capturing the headlines of late. Wright-Phillips scored a hat-trick (his second of the season) against Chicago and has now scored eight goals in his last four matches. The London born forward leads the league in scoring with nine goals, and has been developing a strong understanding with Henry. Red Bulls coach Petke and TFCs Nelsen know each other well. They won MLS Cup as teammates at DC United back in 2004. Petke was a finalist for MLS Coach of the Year in 2013 after guiding New York to the top of the standings in his first year in charge. The Odds: With Toronto FCs current poor run in MLS and their disappointing home losses against Colorado and New England, New York will arrive at BMO Field confident of taking at least a point home with them, especially given the loss of Michael Bradley. The Red Bulls have a very good record against Toronto FC and are unbeaten in their last ten matches against the Reds dating back to June 2009. Theyve out-scored them 25-5 during that stretch. In fact, New York have only lost four of 18 meetings all-time against Toronto.

Listen to the game live on TSN 690 at 7:30pm et. The first-place Bruins set their season-high for consecutive wins on Sunday, beating the Florida Panthers 5-2 on the road for their fifth straight victory. Boston hasnt claimed six straight contests since Feb. 17-March 2 of last season. The Canadiens are one point behind Toronto for third place in the Atlantic, with the top three teams in each division earning an automatic bid to the postseason. The Bruins recent hot streak has helped push the clubs lead atop the division to 11 points over the Maple Leafs. Although the Bruins enter Wednesdays clash on a hot streak and Montreal has lost two straight and three of its last four games, the Canadiens have had the upper hand in recent meetings with Boston. The Habs are 2-0 against the Bruins so far in 2013-14 and have won have five straight overall in the series. The Canadiens are also 7-2-1 over the last 10 regular-season meetings against Boston at the Bell Centre. Boston picked up its most recent victory against the Panthers over the weekend. The clubs were tied at 1-1 after 40 minutes before the Bruins used a dominant third period to record the 5-2 decision. Carl Soderberg and Patrice Bergeron each posted a goal and an assist in the win. Chris Kelly, Torey Krug and Jarome Iginla also scored for the Bruins, while Chad Johnson gave up two goals on 22 shots in the win. The victory briefly pushed the Bruins ahead of Pittsburgh for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, but the Penguins have won twice since then and are currently three points in front of Boston. "We talked about it before the game that Pittsburgh wasnt playing tonight and we were only one point behind them, so it was a big game for us and I think we played a solid road game to come out with the two points," said Bergeron.dddddddddddd The win came in the middle test of a three-game road trip that is set to end tonight in Montreal. The Bruins have won three straight on the road and are 17-10-3 away from Beantown this season. Montreal is glad to be home on Wednesday after going 1-3-0 on a recent tour of Pacific Division cities. The rough trek dropped the Habs to 17-14-2 as the visiting team this season. The Canadiens are 18-10-5 as the host in 2013-14 and are playing two straight and four of their next five games at the Bell Centre. The Habs were outscored by a combined margin of 9-2 in dropping the last two games of their trip, losing 5-2 in Phoenix on Thursday before getting dealt a 4-0 setback Saturday at San Jose. While Sharks netminder Antti Niemi pitched a shutout on Saturday, Habs goaltender Peter Budaj gave up two goals on 11 shots before being pulled early in the second period for the Canadiens. Dustin Tokarski gave up the other two goals on 22 shots in relief. "We played terrible," said Canadiens Max Pacioretty. "We didnt play our game plan, we just played awful." With No. 1 goaltender Carey Price dealing with a lower-body issue, Budaj could get the start again on Wednesday. Price anchored Team Canada to a gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, but also returned from Russia with an injury that has kept him sidelined for the first seven games after the break. Price faced shots at practice on Tuesday and could be nearing a return to game action, but he isnt expected to suit up for tonights tilt. The Canadiens, however, could get forward Brandon Prust back on Wednesday for the first time since the Olympic break. Prust, who has five goals and six assists over 48 games this season, last played on Feb. 8 when he suffered an upper-body injury.
