All those things, when you look at it, it hasn't gone very good.
The series moves to Toronto for Games 3 and 4 on Monday and Thursday.
Pastrnak would have another opportunity in the final two minutes, however, Anderson would make a diving stick save to preserve Toronto's two-goal lead. Not every goal against has been his fault, though, with the Bruins continuously being allowed to skate right to Andersen's crease for a scoring chance. Frederik Andersen stopped 40 shots. When a referee makes a call you kind of live with it because it's decisive.
"We get a guy suspended for making a hockey play, and he butt-ends one of the best players in the world in the face", Stevens said. "We didn't feel like we played to the capability we have, so tonight was definitely a statement game for us".
Now you can't be blamed if you didn't see it coming - the Marchand-Bergeron-Pastrnak troika looked like a juggernaut in those first two games. Toronto defenceman Ron Hainsey has been relied on heavily, playing 10:59 on the penalty kill in two games. The strategy has overwhelmed Toronto as the Maple Leafs have constantly been held within their own defensive zone unable to get anything going offensively. With the exception of the Kings, those that returned home in a series deficit responded with a resounding, confidence-lifting Game 3 win. He alone has nine points in Boston's two victories, while linemates Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand have contributed another 11 to give the trio 20 points in the series.
Now the Leafs have to re-create the result again before the series shifts back to Boston, ideally with the same players having a prominent role in the outcome. This was without a doubt Matthews' best performance of the series, as he led the Leafs with five shots on goal, and Toronto will need him to lead the way if they have a chance at winning defeating the Bruins in the first round. At 35, though, and off his recent form, you'd think that after getting scorched a few times he'd be pulling his turtleneck over his head. "I'm sure we can fix that". Unfortunately for Bruins' fans, Grezlcyk suffered a lower-body injury on Saturday. Forwards Dominic Moore, Matt Martin and Josh Leivo are all healthy and ready to go, with all three taking part in post-season practices.

"I think it's important", said Mike Babcock of Matthews' goal. "Whoever puts on our sweater is good enough".
Toronto was reeling in the wake of 5-1 and 7-3 losses, but got back to using its speed on home ice.
As if this weather hasn't been destructive enough, it's gone and done the unspeakable - cancelled a sacred event, the Leafs tailgate party at the Maple Leafs Square to be exact.
Patrick Marleau had two goals, James van Riemsdyk also scored, and Mitch Marner and Morgan Rielly added two assists each for the Maple Leafs. "We have to find our confidence, we have to be ready to go". "That first unit is always doing its thing and we (second unit) try to keep the pressure on them and keep the momentum, and we've gotten some big goals around the net". "It's not just what people are saying - you want to be the best player in the world, and it's not going the way you want, that probably jams you up. We still have a lot of room to go, but it's a nice start". The Bruins did a pretty respectable job of holding their ground during the first period, as Toronto came out firing away both with shots on net and hits along the boards and in open ice.
