Boston Needs to Match Toronto's Intensity From the Start

It was no secret the key to victory for Toronto in this series would be how well they contained the Bruins' top line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Pastrnak.

Hadfield: I think, in all truth, the better team won that year.

Gallant: It just turned it into the somber mood like, now we got to go into that dressing room and talk to them.

CLAUDE GIROUX, PHILADELPHIA FLYERS - APRIL 13, 2012 It was arguably one of the most memorable playoff games of the modern era for the Flyers, a head-to-head with the state rival Pittsburgh Penguins that saw the two teams combine for 13 goals. If it does, then we can assume this series will be over in four games, five at the most.

Asked about the disparity, the second-year star was blunt in his reply. Jake DeBrusk scored on the power play to double the lead before Kevan Miller got a insane redirect off Nikita Zaitsev to make the lead three. Kadri, a 32-goal scorer during the regular season, attacked Wingels after Wingels hit Leafs teammate Mitch Marner.

"What we'll do is we'll fly back, we won't practice tomorrow but we'll get together, we'll regroup, and count on our leadership group to help out as well, and get ourselves on track". At this point we were sure the Leafs had just pulled it off and were going to be heading to the next round. Krejci, for what it's worth, had the previous two hat tricks in B's playoff history, having recorded three goals in Game 6 of the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals. Given that trio has already combined for 20 points in two games, it's safe to say keeping them in check hasn't been easy. "Playoffs are real simple: If you win, you play again. It was a game where - sometimes you're in the regular season, those games happen and teams want to build good habits so they're not going to - they're going to tighten up and accept that they might lose", head coach Bruce Cassidy said about Rask's timely saves.

The Leafs scored the second most goals in the National Hockey League in first period play in the regular season with 91 goals, and trailed only the Winnipeg Jets who scored 92. McElhinney stopped 19 of the 23 shots he faced.

The Bruins' top line got all the headlines and deservingly so.

Capitalizing on multiple Toronto mistakes, Boston scored four goals on only six shots in the game's first 15 minutes to develop an insurmountable lead.

In the second, Toronto would make a push, scoring just 1:22 into the period to cut the Bruins lead to 4-1.

The Bruins took recorded eight shots on goal in the first period, four of them found the back of the net. For Game 7, I chose to set it up based on the chance I might catch some memorable reactions from the guys.

Pastrnak scored his second of the night, and eighth point of the series, with 7:26 remaining when he was allowed to walk out from behind the net untouched after Marchand lost the handle on a breakaway.

Van Riemsdyk scored for Toronto on the power play at 14:53, but Pastrnak sealed his hat trick at 18:24 to put an exclamation mark on the beating. They were going to move on to face the New York Rangers, so people were on their phones and on their computers and getting reservations in New York. "That's our first priority".

Kadri drew a five-minute major and a 10-minute misconduct penalty. Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said after Saturday's morning skate.

Komarov was slow to get up off the ice after being flattened by Kevan Miller in the second period of Game 2, appearing to re-injure the same knee that held him out for half of March. From there, the Bruins content to ride the coattails of one magical player and coast to a 7-3 win in Game 2 of the first round.
