Explosive Bruins expect better from Maple Leafs

"No, and if I had, I'd try to block it out of my mind probably", he said. "So we've just got to stay positive, get back to what we do and try to get back in this series". After being outscored 12-4 in the first two games of the series, he wanted his team to find a way to recentre while also going over video of what needs to be improved on ahead of Game 3.

Asked about the disparity, the second-year star was blunt in his reply.

"I didn't like the hit", said Wingels, who was on his knees against the boards when Kadri launched into him, making substantial head contact. The Anaheim Ducks were much improved from Game 1, but the San Jose Sharks held strong and held off a late Ducks charge to win Game 2 on the road 3-2.

Defenseman Kevan Miller made it 3-0, and ended Andersen's night, with his first goal in 19 career playoff games at 12:13, spinning out of the left corner and watching his pass for Pastrnak get deflected past Andersen by Leafs defenseman Nikita Zaitsev. He finished with a hat trick and three assists for six points, which was significant in a number of different ways. Kadri, a 32-goal scorer during the regular season, attacked Wingels after Wingels hit Leafs teammate Mitch Marner.

Jake Livermore had one decent effort saved by David De Gea and Lukaku smashed an effort right into Ben Foster's face but that was about it.

In other aspects, Boston's defence is playing much more smart than the mistake-prone Leafs, while goalie Tuukka Rask is not under the assault that Frederik Andersen has endured. Partly, because they're heading back to Toronto after this game for Game 3 and 4. Babcock said. "Our compete level (needs to be) right through our group, you've got to have everybody". The youngest player to score six points in a playoff game in National Hockey League history, beating out Wayne Gretzky. While head coach Mike Babcock has attempted to get Auston Matthews' line away from Patrice Bergeron's line all season, it's the preferred matchup for Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy. There's really specific gear you're supposed to wear under your pressure suit but I thought, you know, what the heck?

The Leafs actually had a better start than Thursday when they were almost run out of the rink in the game's first 10 minutes, but the Bruins grabbed the lead at 5:26 when Pastrnak picked up the puck in front of Andersen and made a slick move to score his second goal of the series.

They accomplished the same feat during a frantic 10-minute stretch of Saturday's first period, and now have 20 points through six periods against the floundering Leafs. Mitch Marner finished off a give-and-go with Zach Hyman in transition on their first shift with William Nylander at centre, and Auston Matthews got a risky chance on Tuukka Rask. Another goal at the end of the second frame would not have tasted very good for the B's.

"It would be hard to pick one (thing), to be honest", Hainsey said of what's ailing the penalty kill.

For the second time in three years, Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco tossed a complete game against the Detroit Tigers. You had real punches getting tossed around and Joe Kelly , maybe my new favorite baseball player, going full Nolan Ryan here.

In the second, Toronto would make a push, scoring just 1:22 into the period to cut the Bruins lead to 4-1. The Maple Leafs also have the speed advantage and the offense to take advantage of the Bruins in this series, and we saw some of that in the game two loss, as they scored three goals and had 33 shots.

Now a year older, the first two games against Toronto have been anything but frustrating for the 21-year-old.

Van Riemsdyk scored for Toronto on the power play at 14:53. "I think people on the outside are getting to know". So that's our first priority.

While the Bruins were outhit by the Leafs 42 to 37 in game one, from this pair of eyes the Bruins appeared to be the more physical team and were winning more battles for much of the night.

He said last week that he would only relax if the club reached the desired 40 points - well, they now sit on 41. The Magpies are looking like a tough team to beat, and who knows where this red hot form will see them finish.
