Pastrnak registers 3 goals, 3 assists; Bruins take 2-0 series lead

  • Bruins beat Maple Leafs 5-1 in opener of playoff series

Pastrnak (21 years, 324 days) is the youngest player in National Hockey League history to score six points in a playoff game, eclipsing the mark set by Wayne Gretzky (22 years, 81 days) in Game 3 of the 1983 division final.

In Game 2, a 7-3 victory for the Bruins, the line combined for 14 points - those are Gretzky-Kurri numbers of another generation - and Pastrnak and Marchand were on the ice for all seven Boston goals leaving the Leafs without answer or representation.

Game 3 is Monday night in Denver. What the hell can you do to get back into this opening-round series starting with Game 3 Monday night?

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Killorn scored twice during a four-goal second period, helping Tampa Bay beat New Jersey for a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference series. "It's tough to climb back". Basically, we brought them in here today just to clean the mechanism out and let's get ready to go and get after it.

In a matter of nine seconds, the Boston Bruins' top line produced two incredible scoring chances. The Bruins are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Toronto, 3-7 in the last 10 meetings and the home team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. Even after Brad Marchand failed to score on his initial breakaway attempt, all it took was a simple Patrice Bergeron pass in the corner to leave Pastrnak wide open for another chance. "Obviously they're dominating us". "So, I think he's taken a tremendous step this year by the way that he plays away from the puck and you mention that - that we talk a lot about it but that being said, like you said, it's vice versa - we learn just as much playing with him than he's learning from us".

Bozak suggested that there wasn't much of a point rehashing or breaking down Game 2, not with just a sleet-filled day between games. No one. While it was always conceivable the Toronto Maple Leafs could lose the first two games of this series, the manner of the defeats has been stunning. We've got a good team.

While in Boston the Leafs have been without last change, allowing Bruce Cassidy to roll out the Bergeron line against Auston Matthews' line to good success. "Got to give them credit". On Saturday, Bergeron and Marchand each had four assists with Pastrnak adding in three of his own.

While Republicans praised his leadership, many Democrats found fault with the impact of the tax bill he championed. For many Republicans, Ryan has been "a steady force in contrast to the president's more mercurial tone", said Rep.


"It would be hard to pick one (thing), to be honest", Hainsey said of what's ailing the penalty kill. One they hope will help lead them their second Stanley Cup victory this decade. McElhinney gave up one goal on three shots before intermission. Shattered, broken, and with little time to find fix.

And if not, well, Babcock is going to be blocking this series out of his mind.

We'll see how it goes for Rask in Toronto, but so far so good for the Bruins netminder. The Leafs had some good stretches and they outshot the Bruins in this one, but it was never close. "We went over their goals here this morning; they're all from in tight it seems like". Defensively, the Toronto Maple Leafs are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 81.4 percent of their opponents power plays.

After Kapanen failed to tie the game, Boston went back on the attack on the powerplay and was able to convert due to Jake DeBrusk's tip-in, right on top of the crease, doubling the Bruins lead.

Komarov was slow to get up off the ice after being flattened by Kevan Miller in the second period of Game 2, appearing to re-injure the same knee that held him out for half of March.

Until his team's six-period horror show at TD Garden, that is.

Regardless, the team still has two more games to survive without Kadri. The veteran center was once again underwhelming on Saturday, but his acquisition at the urging of Babcock before the trade deadline may have his place in the lineup secure for the time being.
