Pastrnak Describes Mind Blowing Game 2 Goals

"Any way you look at it, we're down 0-2 and we haven't been as good as we're capable of being". Seeing your guys go into the playoffs, you just have to reset, " he said.

"He's going to skate tomorrow, and then will skate the following day and be a game-time decision (for Game 4)", said Babcock.

Us too, Auston. Us too.

Boston's game plan from the opening faceoff of Game 1 has been clear, hit everything wearing a Maple Leaf and fire the puck on net from anywhere.

While the Bruins snipers didn't connect, they certainly had their chances, most notably with an 18-7 edge in shots on goal in the third. They had an very bad night struggling to get back, and allowing some easy scoring chances. Frederik Andersen stopped 40 shots. When a referee makes a call you kind of live with it because it's decisive. "I don't know (how) much I could delve into every (strategy) because we have played against so many teams".

Rookie Will Butcher had a power-play goal earlier in the third to tie the score 2-all, and Blake Coleman and Ben Lovejoy added empty net goals late.

They've always said that it's not a series until the road team wins a game. Taylor Hall had a goal and two assists in the game.

It was a monumental performance for the 21-year-old, who becomes the youngest player in National Hockey League history to record six points in a playoff game, surpassing Wayne Gretzky's record by four months.

A few seconds later, Marleau and Marner got the lead back for the Leafs on a nice two-on-one with Marleau finishing on a great pass from Marner.

- The Leafs opened the scoring on a first-period power play, which was a good omen for them. In fact, the line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and Pastrnak failed to record a point after putting up a whopping 20 over Games 1 and 2.

Toronto led 1-0 after the first, but Boston tied it at 3:06 of the second when McQuaid's shot from the point squeezed under Andersen's pad and dribbled in. The goal, at 17:05 of the first, gave the Leafs their first lead of the series ... "I know we won, but letting them stick around can be risky the more games you get into a series". "You've got to give them credit". "I'm sure we can fix that".

The Maple Leafs will look to even the series at home in Game 4 on Thursday night. Komarov is uncertain to dress Monday because of the injury suffered in Saturday's 7-3 loss.

The Maple Leafs may be down but they don't feel as if they're out of it just yet and they are confident that they'll get back in the series in front of the home crowd.

But at 14:47, the Leafs' top line finally got the better of the B's best unit. The Bruins had plenty of chances to gain the lead but were unable to defeat the Maple Leafs in Toronto.

They say in the playoffs a team is never truly in trouble until they lose on home ice.

"That was one of the best saves i think i've ever seen".

"At this time of the year, we've talked a lot about this in our room, it's great to have skill but without will, nothing happens".
