Marner has 2 goals, including penalty shot, Leafs top Bruins

NOTES: The Leafs have only been awarded four postseason penalty shots, and the only other time they have scored was Mats Sundin against Buffalo on May 29, 1999. "They've been making the playoffs now for several years". 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.

The Bruins actually scored the first goal of the game, but Marner answered on a rebound in the first period to tie things.

Even with the series down 1-0, the oddsmakers have the Bruins 9/1 to win the Stanley Cup. Boston just looked flat and outplayed in the first meeting.

Monday's press conference with Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney's comments set the tone for the upcoming Boston-Toronto first-round Stanley Cup Playoffs matchup. "You go through different periods where it goes better for you (and) sometimes it doesn't go as well".

"We know we're fast in this locker room", Marner said.

"We lost one game".

The coach also stressed that a player like Matthews, who was held to just two points last spring against the Bruins and rightly or wrongly took a lot of criticism in the process, needs to be patient in these big moments.

Conversely, Toronto has received offensive contributions up and down the lineup, with seven players hitting the 20-goal mark, enabling coach Mike Babcock to roll three scoring lines. They could have scored three more times late in the second, too. He flipped the puck into the open net to make it 2-1. "We're all on the same page here and everyone is feeling good". While not matching their 50-win season previous year, the Bruins did finish at 49-24-9, good enough for the number two spot in the Eastern Conference standings. "We weren't doing him a lot of favours down the stretch (in the regular season)". Then the Leafs hit the ice in Boston to play Game 2 of their series on a day that also features Blue Jays and Toronto FC games - the baseball team is home to 2018 Cy Young victor Blake Snell and the Tampa Bay Rays, while the soccer squad is in Seattle for a rematch of the 2016 and '17 MLS Cups.

The Maple Leafs are 1-4 in their last 5 games as a road underdog, 1-4 in their last 5 games as an underdog and 2-5 in their last 7 road games. When asked his thoughts on the playoffs which begin tonight (Thursday), his response, "Best time of the year".

Frederik Andersen settled the puck behind his net, patiently faked out the hard-charging Brad Marchand and zipped a pass beyond Patrice Bergeron to clear the defensive zone.

"I don't think there is any lack of respect for the Leafs".

"I put my whole weight on my right foot, and then I just couldn't get there anymore", Rask said.

The Leafs are listed +125 to steal game two in this series on Saturday Night, with an implied probability of 44% to climb up 2-0 in the series against the Bruins. This season that same line had an excellent total, despite losing Pastrnak for nearly a month due to injury, accumulating 106 goals between them, and 260 points.
