TORONTO (Ticker) - The Toronto Maple Leafs had their four-game unbeaten streak end against the Boston Bruins on Thursday, and look to start a new one when they host the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

Toronto was dominated by the Bruins in a 2-1 overtime loss, getting outshot, 36-25, but still had chances to win the game. However, the Leafs could not beat Boston netminder Tim Thomas, who finished with 23 saves.

Maple Leafs backup goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin was sharp in making 34 saves while defenseman Bryan McCabe scored Toronto's only goal. Aubin will probably get his third straight start on Saturday in place of the injured Andrew Raycroft.

New Jersey has been playing good hockey lately in winning five of its last six games. The Devils are 8-1-1 at home but only 3-5-0 on the road this season.

Jamie Langenbrunner led the Devils with two goals and an assist in a tight 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Friday.

Zach Parise scored the other goal for New Jersey while goaltender Martin Brodeur only had to make 15 saves. Parise also had two assists for the Devils, who held Ottawa to only 17 shots.

Brian Gionta had the hat trick in New Jersey's 7-6 triumph over Toronto on October 12. Gionta has come up big recently against the Maple Leafs, with four goals and three assists in his last four games against them.
