Five Takeaways - Leafs vs Bruins - 04/23/18

Here are five takeaways from the Maple Leafs' 3-1 win over the Boston Bruins Monday at Air Canada Centre in Game Six of their first-round playoff series:

by Adam Proteau Proteautype / MapleLeafs.com

1. Bruins outshoot Leafs in opening frame, but neither side scores. The Leafs were coming off a season-saving 4-3 win over Boston in Game Five, but it was the Bruins who started Game Six with focus and power, outshooting Toronto 17-10 in the first 20 minutes of action. Nevertheless, neither Boston nor the Buds got on the scoreboard before the first intermission, as Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen was sharp and counterpart Tuukka Rask was his equal.

In a high-scoring series such as this one, you had to expect a more defensive-minded effort would be coming sooner or later - and on Monday, it

After Game 5 win in Boston, Leafs shift focus to home-ice battle

by Adam Proteau Proteautype / MapleLeafs.com

The Maple Leafs staved off elimination from the 2018 playoffs with a 4-3 victory over the Bruins in Boston Saturday. But if they wish to extend the first-round series to a seventh game with a Game 6 win at Air Canada Centre Monday night, they're going to need to do something that proved difficult for them in Game 5.

Johnsson scores off Kadri's pass

TOR@BOS, Gm5: Johnsson nets his first playoff goal

R1, Gm5: Andreas Johnsson takes a great pass from Nazem Kadri, goes to his backhand and slides the puck home, giving the Maple Leafs a 2-0 lead

  • 00:59 •

1. Leafs weather Bruins' shot storm in first frame, enter second period with two-goal advantage via goals from Brown, Johnsson. Facing elimination from the playoffs, the Leafs expected an early push from the Bruins in Boston, and that's what they got, as the home team outshot Toronto by more than a 2:1 ratio (15-6) in the first 20 minutes of action. However, Buds goalie Frederik Andersen was at his best in the opening frame, stopping every shot he saw in the period, and that allowed the Leafs to be at their opportunistic best: at the 6:36 mark of the period, centre Auston Matthews carried the puck around behind the Bruins' net, threw it out in front of goalie Tuukka Rask, and winger Connor Brown batted it in for his first-ever playoff goal and a 1-0 Toronto advantage.

Three minutes and 36 seconds later, the Leafs extended their lead when winger Andreas Johnsson took a terrific pass from centre Nazem Kadri and beat Rask for his first career NHL post-season goal, and Toronto took a 2s-0 lead into the first intermission. With their backs against the wall, the Buds needed Andersen to play well and for the skaters in front of him to make the most of their scoring chances - and that's precisely how the first period played out.

Five Takeaways - Leafs vs. Bruins - 04/19/18

Here are five takeaways from the Maple Leafs' 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins Thursday at Air Canada Centre in Game Four of their first-round playoff series:

by Adam Proteau / MapleLeafs.com

1. Bruins strike first with goal 28 seconds into game. After winning the first two games in Boston, the Bruins fell 4-2 to the Leafs Monday and were aiming to be the first of the two clubs to win a road game in the series. They got out to a good start in that regard Thursday, as blueliner Torey Krug's shot from just inside the Leafs' blueline beat goaltender Frederik Andersen up high and the visitors had a 1-0 lead 28 seconds into the contest.

Andersen was screened on the play, but regardless of how it happened, the Bruins goal immediately had the Leafs chasing the game, and after a solid Game 3 win, that's not how Toronto wanted to begin a showdown as important as this one.
