Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Free Preview 4/19/18

Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Free Preview 4/19/18

The Maple Leafs have been their own worst enemy in the opening round of the playoffs from the Nazem Kadri suspension in Game 1, to allowing four goals in the first 15 minutes of Game 2, to playing poor defensively against a Bergeron-less Bruins team in Game 4.

But the Bruins say the performances in those games, by Boston and by goaltender Tuukka Rask, do not necessarily mean anything heading into Game 5 of the Eastern Conference First Round at TD Garden on Saturday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS), when they can eliminate the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Schneider, who seemed to hurt his groin in a collision with Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh midway through the final period, survived a late power play to nail down the win and pul;l the Devils to 2-1 in the best-of-seven first-round series.

Bergeron was scratched shortly prior to Game 4 due to the injury.

A four-time Selke Award victor as the NHL's best defensive forward and the Bruins' No. 3 scorer this year with 63 points in 64 games, Bergeron broke his foot while blocking a shot on February 24 and was sidelined for a month. Tommy Wingels took his place on the Bruins' roster, while Riley Nash slid into his spot as the top-line center. "We got it, and we needed it, because early on, they were better". He scored Toronto's only goal of Game 4.

With the Leafs facing elimination in Game 5 on Saturday night in Boston, the 27-year-old centre has no choice. Outside of Matthews scoring the winning goal in Game 3 they have been smothered by the Bruins.

Cassidy, whose team leads the series 2-1, spoke to the officials at the beginning of the second period and wanted to know who of the four (two referees, two linesmen) made a decision to give Nash the two-minute penalty.

"I think (it's) on us", Nylander said.

Russian Federation on wrong side of Syria war: Mike Pence warns Putin
President Donald Trump's proposed wall on the U.S. border with Mexico did not come up in Pence's meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Plekanec saw more ice time in those two games than in any other in his brief Leafs tenure.

Another 2-on-1 factored into the 3-1 advantage when Jake DeBrusk finished off David Krejci's feed for the insurance goal at 4:17 of the third.

"I was disappointed", he said of the suspension.

"I didn't think we had everyone going. Plus, he will have good energy for us, so it's important to have that going into Boston".

Some drama escalated on the rink when Flyers player Radko Gudas did his best to push some buttons for Penguins player, Sidney Crosby.

"That being said, we have done some pre-scouts, watched some film and hopefully that will come a little smoother in the next game". "They do a pretty good job of clogging up the neutral zone, and I think that is really a focus for us, is being able to get through the neutral zone, because that translates to offensive opportunities".

Auston Matthews scored the victor on a setup from William Nylander in Game 3, but both have been held off the scoresheet otherwise. James van Riemsdyk also scored, and Mitch Marner and Morgan Rielly added two assists each for the Maple Leafs. Last year, they took the Capitals to six games, but this year, they could be out in five, especially since they lost the two games here in Boston, in this series, by a combined 12-4 count.

"We're gonna break through at some point", McAvoy said Thursday morning.
