Leafs forward Leo Komarov to miss Game 3 against Boston

Pastrnak snaps Gretzky's record as youngest player with 6 points in playoff game

Boston leads the series 2-0.

Next to nothing has gone right for the Maple Leafs. We know it has been and it will continue to be and we know that they're a tight-checking team; they play hard.

The Maple Leafs did have a 33-28 advantage in shots on goal, including a 26-22 edge in shots on goal when the teams were at even strength. "He's our guy. The puck was going in and it wasn't going our way, so we got him out. we haven't done a very good job in front of him".

Odds are this was never going to be a one-superstar series for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

And tonight's Game 3 meeting in Toronto will either confirm or dispel such a notion. MacKinnon's second of the game early in the second period stood as the game-winner. It was the type of goal that has defined Matthews in his young career with a nose for the net and a quick release in traffic.

"Strength on the puck", said Cassidy. With the exception of the Kings, those that returned home in a series deficit responded with a resounding, confidence-lifting Game 3 win.

Toronto was reeling in the wake of 5-1 and 7-3 losses, but got back to using its speed on home ice. "We knew they were going to push back".

Nathan MacKinnon, Avalanche: There's a strong case to be made here for Martin Jones, who set a franchise record for a playoff game with 45 saves, but MacKinnon's two goals propelled the Avs to a much-needed victory after coming into Monday's action down 2-0 in their first-round series against the Predators.

But on Monday they were held off the scoresheet, even though they had their chances. We had good starts the last two games; we can definitely do better in the second and third - especially [Saturday]. One day you have a great day next morning you wake up and it's an absolutely (crappy) day.

And hammering Leafs netminder Frederik Andersen for 42 shots in the losing effort, the Bruins did everything but tie this game up when it mattered most.

China's trade surplus with U.S. surges, calls for patience
Trade deficit during the fiscal stood at United States dollars 156.83 billion. And he said, "We will sell beef in China ".

Plekanec had just two assists in 17 games since being acquired from the Habs and had been a non-factor in this series as the fourth line center.

"They were tight on us and we have to battle through and be better", said Bergeron. "We've got last change". "That being said, we had some pretty good chances that usually find a way".

The Toronto Maple Leafs are facing a crisis as they return home to the Air Canada Centre. The 28-year-old had his best game of the series, making 40 saves and was rock steady all night.

That was a delay of game/puck over the glass penalty late in the first that led to a James van Riemsdyk power-play goal.

In particular, Cassidy felt that since the officials gathered at centre ice to discuss the call there was some confusion.

Give them this matchup again, which seems like Babcock's only call with Kadri still suspended, and they'll feast. "I didn't think it was".

Their defense, which was a turnstiling nightmare for large chunks of this game, will know what the Leafs want to connect on in Game 4. Andersen surrendered weak goals to both Adam McQuaid (a modest shot from the point that went through him) and a brutal angle shot from Zdeno Chara ...

Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog are capable of dictating the pace, and the Avs will get tremendous support from their home crowd.

"I think an early save on their first goal (in Game 2) would have been huge and that's playoff hockey for you", said Andersen. It wouldn't be a Bruins game without some Marchand moments and indeed their were a few.
