Marleau, Leafs battle back to narrow series

Marleau, Leafs battle back to narrow series

So much was made of the 20 points the Bruins first line combined for in the first two games of the series - and for good reason. He got shots on net early and often and it paid dividends for him in this one.

Game 3 was the blueprint for the Leafs, and now the Bruins have two days to prepare a solution ahead of Thursday's Game 4.

The Leafs top offensive players Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, William Nylander and Patrick Marleau all chipped in offensively which proved to help their team in a big way.

"They capitalized, doesn't mean that because you disagree with the call that it's gonna result in a goal", said Cassidy.

Lifelong Leafs fans admit the first 2 games were crushing but they're not jumping off the bandwagon just yet. The Air Canada Center was loud tonight and the Maple Leafs fed on that energy early on as the two sides traded scoring chances through most of the opening period. He did take a shift two minutes after Bozak scored, but then spent nearly the rest of the game on the bench, taking just two shifts in the third period.

As for the overall Leafs effort, the Bruins weren't expecting to sweep their way to an easy first-round victory, especially given their divisional rival's success at the Air Canada Centre.

Nash scored 15 goals and assisted on 26 more in 76 games played this season. "We knew they were going to push back". "In the playoffs, the intensity increases, so that's what we got". "He was really good for us".

David Pastrnak had himself a night Saturday. Toronto finished third in goals scored and second in power-play percentage.

Matthews got his first point of the series with a goal in the second period that ended up being the game-winner.

In particular, Cassidy felt that since the officials gathered at centre ice to discuss the call there was some confusion. When a referee makes a call you kind of live with it because it's decisive. "I didn't think it was". Largely meaningless to this current group, of course, but the Bruins are 12-2 in their last 14 Game 3 contests dating back to 2010.

The momentum shifted once again, as Zdeno Chara tied the game just three minutes later, roofing a shot at a tough angle near the Leafs' net. In an oddity going the other way, van Riemsdyk was able to get some rare traction on the Big Zee, slipping under his wing to get a goal from the doorstep. Likely taking exception to a slew foot of Marchand in the third, Rielly went at the Bruins pest with a cross check after a whistle and the latter responded with a baseball type swing that didn't connect. Boston had several more opportunities than the Leafs and could have easily taken the lead. Both were handed minors.
