Today, the spirit of rivalry is alive and burning. Regular playoff encounters attest to their enduring competition, and Ullmark's mask choice clearly resonates with a seminal Bruins moment.

With Bergeron retiring from the NHL, Ullmark possibly aims to honor his ex-captain's illustrious career. Yet, the image can also be a reminder to the Leafs of their heart-wrenching 2013 playoff defeat against Boston.
