Bergeron line having its way with the Maple Leafs

In the second, Toronto struck early, but less than three minutes after the Maple Leafs showed some signs of life, Pastrnak snuffed out any hope on the Buds' bench.

"It just feels like an quake in your feet when you score, especially in playoffs", Matthews said. And if they didn't... well, we've already established what that would have made them.

He came home with a goal and an assist after two games, meaning - after his two-apple night in Game 3 - his four points are tied for the team scoring lead with Rielly.

The one bit of encouraging news for the Maple Leafs is they could look towards the series between the Minnesota Wild and Winnipeg Jets for inspiration.

What are your thoughts on Game 3 and can the Leafs come back in the series? A lot of that had to do with how dominant defenceman Morgan Rielly was all night.

Here are five things Toronto needs to happen to have any success against Boston when it hosts Game 3 on Monday.

This was unveiled at the game-day skate, with Plekanec between Kadri's regular linemates, Patrick Marleau, whose switch to centre for Game 2 was a flop, and Mitch Marner.

DARRYL SITTLER, TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS - APRIL 22, 1976 In February 1976, Sittler had the greatest single game performance in National Hockey League history, scoring six goals and 10 points in one night.

Look for Boston to take Game 3 along with a commanding 3-0 lead in the series as the Maple Leafs officially find themselves in serious trouble. The Leafs, for what it's worth, are the best among that group (Wild, Devils, Avs).

Pruitt and those around him are under multiple investigations launched by government watchdogs and congressional committees. Pruitt has faced growing criticism and angry questioning from Democratic and Republican lawmakers over his spending habits.

Moore, the veteran center, will suit up for the first time this series to take Plekanec's usual spot on the fourth line.

"Pasta" finished with a hat trick to go with three assists in the Bruins' 7-3 win over the Maple Leafs to take a 2-0 lead in their opening round playoff series.

Cassidy spoke to the officials at the beginning of the second period and wanted to know who of the four (two referees, two linesmen) chose to give Nash the two-minute penalty.

Toronto, which was 1 for 7 with the man advantage through the first two games, made the Bruins pay just 7 seconds later when van Riemsdyk scored his second goal of the series, slipping the rebound of Tyler Bozak's initial shot through Rask at 17:05 to give the Leafs their first lead of the series.

There were at least three giveaways in the first period, two by the defence, and in the first two games the Bruins would surely have put those pucks in the net.

Knowing what we do about the character and makeup of this team, that all seems unlikely to repeat. Marchand had a solid opportunity on Frederik Andersen on a slick saucer pass from Pastrnak, but the puck slid off his stick before he was able to get a shot off. They had an very bad night struggling to get back, and allowing some easy scoring chances.

Tuukka Rask wasn't the reason behind the Maple Leafs 4 goals. Especially those aforementioned missed shots by way of unforgiving iron. Five of the six final entries on this list of 10 great post-season performances come from Hall of Famers and honest-to-goodness legends of the game. "I didn't think it was". The Avs were pushing hard at the finish of Game 2 before dropping a 5-4 decision. In fact, they still controlled the pace of play, and found their offensive chances, even with a turtleneck draped on them. "Obviously I knew him, playing against him, but he's been one of our best players since I got here".

With two days to rest and adjust, and the same can be said for the rest of a largely underperforming Black and Gold squad that struggled on Monday.
