Mitch Marner undresses Tuukka Rask for attractive short-handed penalty shot tally

How the Leafs can win Round 1 and how the Bruins can prevent that from happening

Somewhat surprisingly given their playoff history and the notion they were favourites to win the series (and still could be), the Bruins were flat from the opening faceoff, though the Leafs' tireless effort influenced anything the Bruins did on each shift.

They looked jittery at times, especially some young players.

All due respect to Coyle - who hails from nearby East Weymouth and is proud to be playing for his hometown team in the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time after he was acquired from the Minnesota Wild - but if he is the Bruins' best player, Boston's chances of winning won't increase on most nights. They passed when they should have shot much of the night. Marchand has recorded six goals and 10 assists over the last 10 games for Boston.

The Toronto Maple Leafs visit the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference first round with a 1-0 lead in the series. After opening the postseason as -145 favourites to claim their sixth playoff series win over Toronto since 1959, the Bruins now lag as +135 underdogs while the Maple Leafs have moved to -155 chalk on the series prices. But with a newfound confidence and maturity that seemed to often elude them in the regular season, the Maple Leafs are now in the driver's seat, and poised to rewrite a decades-long narrative.

Too much Mitch Marner, scoring twice. On his breakaway goal, Nylander redeemed himself for the dumb retaliatory penalty he took in the first period when he was called for high-sticking Bruins defenceman Connor Clifton. That would be a recurring theme. With the trio of Bergeron, Marchand, and Pastrnak accounting for over 40% of the team's goal production this season, shutting down the Bruins power trio is crucial to Toronto's success.

The Bruins had the third-best power play during the regular season but were tied with the Pittsburgh Penguins for the most shorthanded goals against (15).

Jake DeBrusk could not control a bouncing puck near the Leafs' blue line, and that was all the speedy Marner needed to see.

"Yeah, it wasn't fun causing the turnover there". "Good luck, play hard, have fun". "Obviously tried to enjoy it, tried to go out and play the best I can, help this team as best I can".

"We know we got a quick team", Marner said. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask made 29 stops. "He's done that in practice", said Rask. His teammates rewarded him with more than enough offense.

Soon after, Rask thwarted a breakaway by Tavares. But he could not come up with the save on a breakaway by William Nylander.

"You've got to try to reset as quickly as possible".

Matthews then found iron at the other end, but the visitors went up 3-1 with 1:35 left in the second when Nylander fired between Rask's pads on another break after taking a terrific tape-to-tape stretch pass from Nazem Kadri.

"I got him where I wanted and I felt it hit my stick, but I guess it was a bad saver selection because it went through".

"My 19-year-old year, when it was April, I was drinking beers in my frat basement", Dallas defenseman Ben Lovejoy said.
