Maple Leafs host Bruins for Game 3

Maple Leafs host Bruins for Game 3

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. Not long after, Auston Matthews scored his long-awaited first goal of the series to put the Buds back up one after 40 minutes. Meanwhile, Nazem Kadri is still suspended, Leo Komarov is out, and this series feels kinda over.

Up Next: The Maple Leafs and Bruins now get two days off before Game 4, which happens Thursday night at 7:00 p.m.at Air Canada Centre.

They've always said that it's not a series until the road team wins a game.

After mostly surviving a first-period barrage from the Leafs, Rask and the Bruins defense finally got beat late in the opening frame.

Pulled after allowing three goals on five shots in the first period of Game 2, Andersen robbed Pastrnak on a jaw-dropping diving stick save with Rask on the bench for an extra skater with just over two minutes to go to help preserve Toronto's win. 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.


"That part is disappointing, but the other part is we know how good we are and we want to play that well".

Later in the second, Zdeno Chara tied the game at two with a attractive top shelf goal you'd expect to see from one of the Bruins' top line players. "In the playoffs, the intensity increases, so that's what we got". "You have to be able to respond in those moments, and as a team collectively we have been able to respond good when we've hit some adversity during the course of the year, so tonight should be no different".

Andersen would love to have the first two goals back, but for the rest of the game he was nothing short of outstanding. The return of Nash, the straw that undoubtedly stirs the bottom-six drink of the B's forward group, will slot Noel Acciari back down to the right side of a relentless fourth line with Tim Schaller on the left and Sean Kuraly in the middle. Nick Holden would play on Boston's third defence pair with Adam McQuaid. And the Bruins got goals from their second power-play unit that were decisive in both matches. Through two games it's felt as if Boston is not only the team strong defensively but also the team featuring the high-powered offense as well.

Loose pucks: Ryan Donato, Brian Gionta, and Tommy Wingels appear to be your healthy scratches tonight... The Maple Leafs return home down 0-2 in a best-of-seven series against the Boston Bruins where they've looked completely overmatched. The team that won Game 3 has gone on to win that series in all but two of those 14 series.
