Leafs look to go up 3-1 in playoff series against Bruins

Anderson: Bruins need David Pastrnak to snap out of funk

Anderson: Bruins need David Pastrnak to snap out of funk

"Pastrnak also - like many other Boston shooters - appears to be looking for that one extra pass for an empty cage against Andersen (a goaltender who allowed the second-most goals in all of hockey from March through Game 82)", wrote Anderson.

Through three games in their best-of-seven series with the Maple Leafs, the line has three goals and six points.

I know these numbers are hardly shocking when you're talking about a player who accounted for nearly 15 percent of your team's all-situation scoring (include his assists and Pastrnak factored in on a staggering 31.5 percent of Boston's offense during the regular season). The Bruins won Game 2 at home 4-1.

The Bruins look to rebound after a Game 3 loss on the road at Scotiabank Arena on Monday night as their come back attempt fell just short as Toronto netted a 3-2 win and now lead 2-1 in the series overall. I honestly don't think so. They loaded up at the [trade] deadline. "If they got to defend, they're no good". "It's a insane start to the playoffs, with those two teams going down, all the great players (on Tampa and Pittsburgh) are out pretty early so the door is open".

Those records included tying the NHL's mark for victories with 62, and putting up 128 points, fourth-most in league history.

Both teams had been playing high scoring games down the stretch of the regular season, but still, no more than five goals have been scored in each of the first three games of this series.

There's also plenty more for the Bruins to play for now knowing they could enjoy home-ice advantage throughout the rest of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

"It's a different game [in the playoffs]", Toronto defenceman Travis Dermott said. During the regular season, he went 36-23 with a 2.77 GAA, including 18-11 with a 2.81 GAA here at home and 1-1 with a 4.52 ERA against the Bruins.

In November 2018, he sought refuge in the Uruguayan Embassy after a court ordered him not to leave the country for 18 months. Congressional allies of Kuczynski said he was also taken Tuesday night to a local clinic with high blood pressure.

Felger and Massarotti noted that placing Pastrnak on David Krejci's right wing could give the Bruins a more favorable matchup against Auston Matthews, who centers the Leafs' second line, and the Leafs' second defensive pair. That did not happen to this line against any opponent they played against for more than 20 five-on-five minutes during the regular season.

"It all comes down to will".

"He's got quick hands and a quick mind", Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said when asked why Johnsson was so effective in that role.

Defenseman John Moore (upper body) and forward Marcus Johansson (illness) both skated Wednesday morning and are expected to rejoin the Bruins lineup. "It's hockey, it's hard".

"At playoff time, the bottom line is you've got to find a way to win that game that night".

"That's not how it is". "That's kind of the staple of their game, the way they play fast", Marchand said. Boston is a disappointing 1-6 in their last 7 contests against division rivals and are just 2-7 in their last 9 games on Wednesday but they can ill afford to go down 3-1 in this series with the Buds and while it is too early to push the panic button this seems like a must win contest.

The New York Islanders also completed a sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday, a result somewhat overshadowed by Tampa's ouster.
