Pastrnak Scores Hat Trick, Bruins Throttle Leafs 7-3 In Game 2

They'll make mistakes, we'll make mistakes. It was the first time in the series the Leafs scored first. Each of those four had their moments in Game 3 after largely being suppressed back in Beantown.

In fairness to Matthews, it is worth pointing out he is only 20-years-old.

Game 4 of the best-of-seven series will be Wednesday night at the Prudential Center, which was stuffed with fans wearing red. "They're calling it as they see it". I think you're kinda innocent until proven guilty.

While the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions haven't been ideal in that regard against Philadelphia, they haven't been derailed by a lack of discipline. We had good starts the last two games; we can definitely do better in the second and third - especially [Saturday]. Each of the 10 pairings of referees working the playoffs has at least one who has worked the Cup Final, so the hope is having that experience helps maintain consistency. On home ice, down two games, Toronto managed to climb back into its series against the Bruins with a 4-2 win.

"First couple games we had a couple bounces go our way, tonight we didn't", said Marchand. That's the way it is. Toronto finished third in goals scored and second in power-play percentage.

Auston Matthews delivered the game-winner, and it was like he convinced a city, a team, and himself that the Leafs are still in this thing.

Coach John Tortorella said the Blue Jackets "have to cure that" because it's too risky to keep taking so many penalties.

Arsene Wenger Concerned About Arsenal's Character, Balance After Newcastle Loss
Newcastle's winning margin could have been greater, but Kenedy's audacious effort came back off the woodwork late on. Wenger's men played out a 2-2 draw with CSKA Moscow in mid-week to qualify for the semi-finals of the Europa League.

But on Monday they were held off the scoresheet, even though they had their chances.

Overall, Toronto seemed to have used their speed more in this game, giving the Bruins slower defenders more trouble trying to contain them. "But that's the game right now". His reaction to struggling in Boston also was not what you'd want to hear from a leader and a great player. Then, late in the second, Esposito notched two more goals in a five-minute span to bring his total to four, and later capped his night with another power play assist and skated away with a point on six of Boston's 10 goals. The teams combined for 19 penalties - including some fights and misconducts - in the second game of their series. "In the playoffs, the intensity increases, so that's what we got".

"You've got to do it".

Game 4 goes Thursday night at the ACC. All three games so far have been decided by a goal, L.A. defenseman Drew Doughty was suspended for an illegal check to the head of William Carrier and Kings coach John Stevens is none too happy about a missed call on Vegas forward Erik Haula for hitting Anze Kopitar in the face with the butt end of his stick Sunday night.

"They got some fortunate breaks around the net and created a lot of good looks around the net, and they defend well and they have the puck a lot", said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy following an abbreviated practice Sunday at Warrior Ice Arena. "That's an intent-to-injure play". The Leafs have their backs against the wall; expect their young superstar to come out firing at the ACC.

"Special teams this time of year is really big and it can make a huge difference in the game", said DeBrusk.

Komarov is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, according to Babcock.
