BOSTON (Ticker) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs try to extend their season-high winning streak to seven games on Thursday when they visit the FleetCenter to face the Boston Bruins.

The Maple Leafs have reeled off six consecutive wins following a season-high five-game winless stretch. It is their longest winning streak since a franchise-record 10-game run during the 1993-94 season.

Toronto completed a home-and-home sweep of the New York Rangers with a 5-4 victory at Air Canada Centre on Tuesday.

Owen Nolan snapped a tie with 10 seconds left in the second period and Mats Sundin scored the decisive goal for the Maple Leafs, who have won by a combined nine goals during their winning streak.

Toronto's Joe Nieuwendyk had a goal and two assists and Matt Stajan and Mikael Renberg each scored during a three-goal first period.

The Maple Leafs played without left wing Gary Roberts, who is expected to miss at least one week due to a strained leg muscle.

Boston snapped a four-game winless slide with a 6-4 road victory over the Atlanta Thrashers on Wednesday.

Martin Lapointe, who was playing in his 700th NHL game, scored the go-ahead goal for the Bruins, who were not called for a penalty for the first time since March 28, 2001.

Joe Thornton had a goal and an assist and Rob Zamuner scored an empty-netter for Boston, which also got goals from Travis Green, Michal Grosek and Mike Knuble.

The Maple Leafs' winning streak have moved them one point ahead of the Bruins for first place in the Northeast Division with 33.

Boston went 3-2-0 against Toronto last season, winning the final two meetings. The Maple Leafs have lost their last two visits to the FleetCenter.
