BOSTON (Ticker) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs hope to maintain their upswing as they fight for a playoff spot when they visit the Boston Bruins on Thursday.

The Maple Leafs have won four of their last five games to move within six points of defending champion Tampa Bay for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Alexei Ponikarovsky scored the game-winner with just over two minutes left in Toronto's 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Wednesday. Darcy Tucker ended his 16-game scoring drought with two goals.

Already eliminated from playoff contention, the Bruins have lost four straight and seven of their last eight games, including back-to-back road losses at Montreal on Saturday and Tuesday.

Boston has won two of the last three contests here against Toronto, but the Maple Leafs have claimed the last two overall meetings.
