Bergeron line having its way with the Maple Leafs

17 Avril 2018

Elise Amendola / APThe Bruins have outscored Toronto 12-4 through the first two games of the playoffs.

After two ugly opening road games, the Leafs rebounded with a 4-2 victory in Game 3 at the Air Canada Centre.

"Look, we were outplayed for two games, certainly", Maple Leafs defenseman Ron Hainsey said.

With only two National Basketball Association games on the docket for Monday night and a lack of enticing Major League Baseball lines, we're headed to the ice to dominate a questionable line. The 21-year-old right winger became the youngest player in National Hockey League history with a six-point playoff game.

Pastrnak also matched the franchise record for points in a playoff game, joining greats Phil Esposito and Rick Middleton, who achieved the feat in 1969 and 1983, respectively.

B's forward Riley Nash returned to the lineup after missing the final five regular-season games and the first two games of this series after taking a puck to the face. He isn't at Bergeron's Selke level, but he gets the job done. That's what amazes me with him. Wingels took part in morning skate and is healthy enough to play, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said.

"I don't think I can say any more".

If you missed any of Sunday's action, you can see a recap of the Penguins, Wild, Blue Jackets and Golden Knights' wins by checking our updates here. Monday night, they had zero. Hard to play against. The Leafs had Marlies play by play man Todd Crocker in the press box and ready to call the game had Bowen not been available. "You can talk about Bergy and Marchy on the PK too while you're at it".

After forcing a turnover and sparking a Brad Marchand breakaway bid, Pastrnak took the puck out of the corner and easily lifted it over McElhinney with little-to-no Leafs defenders in sight.

Look for Boston to take Game 3 along with a commanding 3-0 lead in the series as the Maple Leafs officially find themselves in serious trouble.

They are the second father and son duo to play for the team in the postseason, joining two-time Stanley Cup-winner Ken (R.) Hodge and his son, Ken (D.) Hodge. "In the playoffs, the intensity increases, so that's what we got". Toronto had a 63-39 lead in shot attempts in all situations, 51-30 lead at even strength.

Not only was it the first goal of the game, it was the first time the Leafs held a lead in the series and it was their second power-play goal in eight chances. They got two goals from Patrick Marleau, one from Auston Matthews and one from James van Riemsdyk. We went 1-1-1.

The Bruins scored early and often, netting four goals in the first period. Just before stopping Pastrnak, the Bruin winger looked to have Andersen beaten for a sure goal. "You're just out there", Babcock said. While they were enthusiastic, there was a pensive air, as if the fans could not quite believe the Leafs were finally competing for pucks and using their speed to their advantage. "Freddie is our guy and he'll be back tomorrow". We haven't done that.
