Leafs back in Boston for crucial Game 5 vs. Bruins



Boston, which beat Toronto in seven games both last spring and in 2013 at the same stage of the playoffs, got its second power play of the evening early in the second, but Andersen stopped Patrice Bergeron on the Bruins' best chance.

After a lackluster Game 3, the Bruins bounced back in a big way Wednesday night, getting two goals from David Pastrnak in a 95-second span in the second period to pull out a 6-4 win, evening their first round series against the Maple Leafs at two games apiece. Kapanen was also credited with an assist on Matthews' goal, along with Muzzin. The Bruins challenged Matthews' goal, arguing that Rask was interfered with, but the goal was upheld after a review. He had at least two waved off late in the regular season, so the wait for the call on the play was torturous.

Call it a coming-of-age game. Tuukka Rask stopped 25 shots. The Leafs hope to get out to a fast start, get the lead and take the rowdy TD Garden crowd out of the game.

Game 7, if necessary, is scheduled for Tuesday night in Boston. The Leafs eventually had a Boston bench minor to exploit but did nothing.

Toronto failed to covert on its power play in the third after the Bruins were nabbed for having too many men on the ice. However they couldn't take advantage of their chances in Game 5.

The first few minutes produced just a few shots as the teams tried to generate speed, but showed excellent checking posture.

The Hyman penalty provided Boston its best chance that period, but the Leafs had clearly learned from getting burned a couple of times in Game 4 and gave the Bruins nearly no clear looks.

"Whenever Drake seems to wear a jersey of a different team or takes photos with players of said team, that team seems to fail and fail miserably, ' says Marissa Roberto of TSN". Defenceman Charlie McAvoy found room up the middle on a nice rush and though it clanked off Andersen's glove, it went high. He had the puck at the point, stepped up and made a motion to shoot, which held up the Bruins for a second, enough for him to slide the puck across to Matthews in the right faceoff dot. A lot going through you mind there.
