It was another way of saying that if you think the Maple Leafs are in bad shape right now, just wait until next year ... and the year after that. Kasperi Kapanen rang the post on a shorthanded breakaway with a shot that could have tied the game, and instead the Bruins raced out to a lead they never looked like relinquishing. The Maple Leafs are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 21-7 in their last 28 home games and 0-5 in their last 5 Conference Quarterfinals games. As of Sunday afternoon, the Bruins had the top four players in National Hockey League postseason points thus far with David Pastrnak already having nine points to his name and with Brad Marchand (6), Patrice Bergeron (5) and Torey Krug (5) not far behind.
While the Bruins took Game 1, there could be a long series ahead, as both sides of round one know all too well. Oh, and 100% of the goals.
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.
So now comes the aftermath for a Toronto club that could ill-afford to lose the services of Kadri for any length of time, let alone three consecutive games after going down 1-0 and being thoroughly dominated by the Bruins in the series opener.
In addition to the absence of Nazem Kadri, who served the second of a three-game suspension on Monday, Toronto may be without Leo Komarov for the foreseeable future after the veteran winger left the game in the second period after a collision with Miller along the boards.
Auston Matthews may have found some time and space with six shots on goal - the most in the three games he's played against the Bruins - but he's been on the wrong end of a historic run for Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and David Pastrnak. Since the beginning on March, he has a.888 save percentage in 14 games. They'd follow it up by shooting from all angles simply to crash the net and bother Frederik Andersen in goal. After being outscored 12-4 in back-to-back losses to Boston, it doesn't even look much like a playoff team.
"It was a great environment", Cassidy said Sunday as the Bruins packed for Games 3 and 4.
"I mean, it obviously hasn't gone the way we want it - we've given up 12 goals in two games".
The only Bruins goal Saturday that wasn't scored from within about 10 feet of the net came from Kevan Miller, but that still deflected in off the skate of Leafs defenseman Nikita Zaitsev, who was in a tough position in front because he was trying to clear out Pastrnak.
While the Bruins were outhit by the Leafs 42 to 37 in game one, from this pair of eyes the Bruins appeared to be the more physical team and were winning more battles for much of the night. Pastrnak has 36 goals and 47 assists to his credit and has notched a point in 55 contests. After a plucky two periods in Game 1, Colorado wasn't able to keep pace with the Nashville Predators in the final frame. DeBrusk, rookie left-winger, comes in 7th for points on the team and has five game-winners. Fiala added an assist while Mattias Ekholm and P.K. Subban had two assists apiece. Nathan MacKinnon had a goal and an assist, and Gabriel Bourque and Gabriel Landeskog each added a goal for Colorado. Landeskog has seven points (2 G, 5 A) in the past seven games and MacKinnon has eight points (2 G, 6 A) in the past seven games...
Wingels was not on the ice at Boston's practice either, and his status for Saturday remains up in the air.
The Bruins, who struggled with getting off to a good start during the regular season, showed their muscle, exploited the Leafs D and showcased their depth in the opening 20 minutes. The B's notched their third power-play goal to make it 5-1 at 11:29. But the Avalanche couldn't get another puck past goalie Pekka Rinne.
