Do Bruins have best offense in National Hockey League playoffs?

Unfortunately for Matthews and the Maple Leafs, they're not likely to be printing t-shirts with his slogan unless his team makes a miraculous turnaround and wins this series, which will continue with Game 3 in Toronto on Monday. Basically, we brought them in here today just to clean the mechanism out and let's get ready to go and get after it.

Game 1 saw the duo of Morgan Rielly and Ron Hainsey take the brunt of the torture from the Bruins top line, wtih Rielly specially having a tough night, putting forth one of the worst top-to-bottom performances of his National Hockey League career. "Sometimes you make that save and we build off that. That was always interesting for an 18-year old with a great mullet".

If the fans at TD Garden weren't appreciative enough yet, they would be soon.

"You've got to give your goalie a chance to be good". And concerning for where this series goes from here because it doesn't seem like the Devils really have another level to go above what they did at times on Saturday. Rick Nash, Jake DeBrusk, and David Krejci were all able to put the puck in the net. McElhinney stopped 19 of the 23 shots he faced. After being outscored 12-4 in the first two games of the series, he wanted his team to find a way to recentre while also going over video of what needs to be improved on ahead of Game 3.

Game 2 was all but over after the opening period. "So, you get into trading chances, and we had to guard against that".

The Toronto Maple Leafs are looking for possible answers after a second lopsided loss in their best-of-seven Stanley Cup first round series against the Boston Bruins.

Kucherov recorded his seventh career three-point playoff game. Colin Wilson took a hit along the near boards to move the puck to J.T. Compher, who found Gabriel Bourque with plenty of space in the slot. Toronto defenceman Ron Hainsey has been relied on heavily, playing 10:59 on the penalty kill in two games.

Jupp Heynckes: 'Niko Kovac predestined for Bayern Munich'
"We're very happy that we could win Niko Kovac as a new coach for Bayern", sports director Hasan Salihamidzic said. Kovac, who won 83 caps for Croatia but was born in Berlin, has been in charge of Eintracht Frankfurt since 2016.

Cardi B Performs Preggo at Coachella
Cardi hit the stage Sunday night for Day 3 of the festival, where she performed hit songs from her album " Invasion of Privacy ". She even brought out 21 Savage , YG, G-Eazy, Chance the Rapper for surprise cameos.

While Allen could develop into a great starter , taking him with the second overall pick would be a massive risk for the Bills. They have to get these three players, and while they have resources, they need to carefully consider how to attack the draft.

Hampus Lindholm had a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who are leaving Honda Center with an 0-2 series deficit for the third time in their last five playoff series. The Avs kept the pressure on, but the Preds held firm to preserve a 5-4 win and a 2-0 series lead.

Toronto replied with second-period goals from Marner (1:22) and Bozak (9:02) sandwiched around a tally from Krejci (3:46). The Maple Leafs will get the luxury of last change, meaning the hard line matching Babcock has tried to employ through the first two games will become much easier. In a crucial Game 6 between Toronto and Philadelphia, Sittler scored once in the first frame, three times in the second frame and fired home his fifth of the game minutes into the third. In fact, after yet off another slice-and-dice of the defensively-woeful Maple Leafs, it's clear that it's going to take an army to slow them down. It's only fitting that this beauty proved to be the game-winner of a tense tussle. That's some darn good company.

But, once again, Rask made the big saves when he really needed to.

Another possibility (those less likely) is that both Moore and Martin get put in the lineup and that Tomas Plekanec sits for Game 3. I don't know if it was a concussion or it wasn't. In the first period, he scored a pair of goals in less than a minute. They need to win the next game - but so do we. "We have to take care of business at home". Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk has done all he can to hold Winnipeg's speedy forwards at bay behind a patchwork defense, but the offense must step up to the Jets' physical brand of play, and soon. "For us, it's about sticking to our game plan, sticking to what we did for the major of the game plan".

The Eastern Conference quarterfinal now switches to Air Canada Centre for Games 3 and 4 on Monday and Thursday. The tactics that Babcock employed in the first two games were exercises in futility against what many now consider the best line in the National Hockey League.

"We haven't been ideal, no question about it", Backes said. And only three of those single-game standout performances have come in the post-lockout era.
