Bruins Players Share Reactions After Game 3 Loss To Maple Leafs

Bruins Players Share Reactions After Game 3 Loss To Maple Leafs

The most interesting game on Monday night is between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Andreas Johnsson, also with a goal and an assist, and Trevor Moore provided the rest of the offense for Toronto.

While regular season success is hardly a marker of postseason success, it's important to note that the 2013 Toronto Maple Leafs clinched their playoff spot a few games from the end of their 48-game season, which was shortened due to a lockout. Tuukka Rask stopped 31 shots for visitors in front of a crowd of 19,611 at Scotiabank Arena.

After a very successful outing in Game 1 at TD Garden, Saturday night's game was anything but.

Kadri was set to have an in-person hearing with the NHL's department of player safety Monday afternoon in NY to answer for his cross-check to the head of Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk in the third period of Boston's 4-1 victory in Game 2 that tied the series 1-1. "You've got to stay with it and find your game".

Deadly storms push through the US East Coast
As the storms tore through MS overnight into Sunday, they left a trail of destruction that authorities are still combing through. He said the threat for severe weather is greatest at such times but that the risk remained even after warm temperatures dropped.


Kadri's and Babcock's future in doubt? That means the league has the option to suspend him for more than five games. The Bruins forward was already hot because of a hit the Leafs centre threw in the previous game that he deemed dirty.

Brad Marchand and Charlie Coyle scored during a raucous opening period as the Boston Bruins downed Toronto 4-1 on Saturday to even the teams' first-round playoff series at one game apiece.

"That's what you've got to do to win", said Babcock. For his efforts, Kadri was assessed a five-minute major for cross-checking and a game misconduct. You have to own your play, you have to own your discipline, you have to own what's going on.

That cannot happen, not only because it is a disgusting way to play the game, but also because the Maple Leafs need him.

Kadri travelled to NY for an in-person hearing, meaning the league had the option to suspend the player for more than five games.

Xbox One S All Digital launches tomorrow, says report
In the USA , the existing, disc-drive-sporting Xbox One S technically retails for a $299 MSRP with a bundled game. On the front of the box image shared you can see the name of the console confirmed as "Xbox One S All Digital".


William Nylander will take Nazem Kadri's place at centre on Toronto's third line behind John Tavares and Auston Matthews when the Maple Leafs host the Boston Bruins in Game 3 of their first-round series Monday. You can see where the emotions got to him, sticking up for a teammate.

Boston hit everything in sight, jumping out to 3-0 lead in the second period before Kadri scored midway through the third, about four minutes before his cross-check on DeBrusk.

The Leafs knew the Bruins wouldn't wave any white flags in the third, but Toronto gave as good as they got - and when it came down to brass tacks, Andersen was superb, keeping the Bruins off the scoresheet in the final frame.

National Hockey League first-round playoff action on Monday evening and a pair of teams from the Atlantic Division will square off as the Boston Bruins tangle with the Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario.

The Leafs will be dealing with a financial crunch as they look to tie up a number of potential free agents, most notably foward Mitch Marner, whose extension could equal or surpass Matthews' recent five-year, $52.17-million (U.S.) deal. The fact that DeBrusk has been able to lure Kadri into a smashmouth competition is laughable.
