Maple Leafs underdogs, Flames favourites on Saturday NHL odds

Marner has 2 goals, including penalty shot, Leafs top Bruins

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins meet Saturday in game two of the National Hockey League first round at the TD Garden.

Marner's first goal was a big one too, ringing the puck off the post twice before scoring late in the first period to level the score.

The Bruins looked like they might be off to the races once again when the took a 1-0 first-period lead on the power play (of course), on a great backdoor pass from Marchand to Bergeron. "You go through different periods where it goes better for you (and) sometimes it doesn't go as well".

Patrice Bergeron scored, and Tuukka Rask made 29 saves for Boston, which defeated Toronto in seven games in the first round last season.

The Leafs are listed +125 to steal game two in this series on Saturday Night, with an implied probability of 44% to climb up 2-0 in the series against the Bruins.

Frederik Andersen made 37 saves and William Nylander also scored on a breakaway for Toronto, which swiped the home-ice advantage in the best-of-seven series as it tries to advance through Boston for the first time in six tries. DeBrusk backchecked and knocked out Marner's right skate, resulting in the third-year forward being awarded a penalty shot. John Tavares had a chance to put the game out of reach with the score 3-1, as did Auston Matthews on a three-on-one before the second intermission.


Then, about three minutes into the second with Boston on a power play, Marner flipped the puck ahead toward center ice and chased it down with a clear path to the goal. That's a circumstance that won't exist on Saturday night.

DeBrusk crashed hard into the boards and appeared to go to the locker room for attention, but returned to the game. "He's going to do this for 20 years and I can't wait to watch him". The Maple Leafs are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Boston and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. "It was a nice move".

Nylander scored through Rask's five-hole with 1:35 left in the period to extend the lead to 3-1 after Kadri sprung him on a breakaway with a long pass.

"I think that was my goal. Because we have a team in the case of the Raptors that has more playoff experience on its roster than ever before and we have a team in the case of the Leafs that is so young and so fast and we saw what a great start they got off to (Thursday) night". The Toronto Maple Leafs had a year to think about how to play a Game 1 against the Boston Bruins, after last year's massacre and the eventual collapse.

Instead, over time, the challenge that the Bruins present, which includes and won't be limited to their enormous talent and often overwhelming physicality, the hostile environment they call home and the confidence borne out of previous successes, all seemed more manageable this time. The last attempt was by Philadelphia's Ville Leino in 2010. Toronto trade deadline acquisition Jake Muzzin missed the final regular-season game, but played Thursday and assisted on Marner's first goal. Marner deked Rask easily and gave Toronto a 2-1 lead at 2:47 of the second period.
