Leafs forward Leo Komarov to miss Game 3 against Boston

17 April, 2018, 06:41 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Mitch Marner led the Leafs in scoring this year with 22 goals and 47 assists

David Pastrnak's first goal required a 180-degree spin as he settled down a bouncing puck, shifted it from his forehand to his backhand and flipped it into the net.

And when the Bruins forward completed the hat trick, faking out a second goalie with a forehand deke before sliding the puck between his legs, it was just one more chance for the Boston fans to celebrate his playoff coming-out party.

This morning, the Leafs made a statement saying, "Due to risky conditions following the ice storm in Toronto this weekend, and with the safety of our fans in mind, the fan tailgate party in Maple Leaf Square for tonight's playoff game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins has been cancelled".

Bergeron and Marchand had four assists apiece while Pastrnak enjoyed a career night with three goals and three assists.

"They scored a goal that was offside (in Game 1), we didn't have the (evidence in time), we didn't (challenge)". "The way we wanted it, the way people in Boston wanted it. I know we're capable of playing better, myself included". They will be tasked with matching up against Boston's high-scoring trio of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. "At the end of the day they are going to be our best line every night". 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.

After mostly surviving a first-period barrage from the Leafs, Rask and the Bruins defense finally got beat late in the opening frame. Maple Leafs 4, Bruins 2. McElhinney stopped 19 of the 23 shots he faced.

Toronto forward James van Riemsdyk took advantage of the break for the game's first goal to put the Leafs in front for the first time in the series. We had good starts the last two games; we can definitely do better in the second and third - especially [Saturday].

Bryce Harper hits broken-bat home run
We have a feeling it won't be long before Harper takes the baseball world by storm with another highlight-reel play. The blast put the Nats up 1-0 in the top of the first, but the Mets just tied it on a Todd Frazier RBI single.


It doesn't look like it will be.

Next to nothing has gone right for the Maple Leafs. Good news is: (the) story's not totally written yet. Nazem Kadri still has two games to serve on his suspension for boarding Tommy Wingels in Game 1. But there's no way to dance around what happened this past Saturday; the Bruins weathered an early Toronto storm, lit Frederik Andersen up for four goals, and simply hung back for the final 40 minutes of a 7-3 victory.

Just 11 seconds after Hainsey was given a double-minor for roughing, Nash made it 4-0.

Before the series began it was expected to be a battle between a strong defensive team in the Bruins and a high-powered offensive team in Toronto.

Game 4 is Thursday night in Toronto. Ryan Donato, the son of former Bruin Ted Donato, made his playoff debut.

His play with his new team hit rock bottom in the series opener when the veteran centre struggled in the Bruins' 5-1 rout.
