Marner scores twice as Leafs surprise Bruins

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

"Mitch Marner, who led the Leafs with nine points in the first round against Boston last spring, tore up the Bruins with two goals and had a Leafs-high 63.2% Corsi mark, and it's on the shoulders of Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy to find a way to stop the Leafs" most magical player in Game 2.

Tavares also got the best of Bergeron at the faceoff dot, winning 53% of the faceoffs they took against each other, including three of four in the Bruins offensive zone. A warning sign like a first period playing out almost identically to the Game 1 that went south last spring determined that the Leafs needed something to reverse course.

William Nylander and John Tavares also scored for the Maple Leafs, who last season lost in the first playoff round to Boston. The 29-year-old goaltender turned in a staunch 37-save effort, only surrendering a power-play goal to a wide-open Patrice Bergeron. "And away you go". What I want to say is that I'm not taking the Maple Leafs to win their first round series against the Boston Bruins, and I'm asking for forgiveness from Leafs fans everywhere.

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. His successful penalty shot went down as a short-handed goal 2:47 into the second frame. With two goals on the night, Marner matched his entire postseason goal output from a year ago in one game.

Just 31 seconds into a Bruins power play, Jake DeBrusk couldn't handle the puck at the Leafs' blue line.

Bruins: 6-4-0, averaging 4.3 goals, 7.1 assists, 3.5 penalties and 9.9 penalty minutes while giving up 2.7 goals per game with a.892 save percentage.

Newcastle win away with Perez header at Leicester
Perez was last season's leading scorer with 10 goals in all competitions, including eight in the league. His seven tackles were more than anyone else on the pitch recorded.

DeBrusk crashed hard into the boards and appeared to go to the locker room for attention, but returned to the game.

"Mike left me a little bit of Leafs swag in my office the other night and wished me luck in the playoffs so I thought I would rep them today", Nurse said. "So, I'm not going to put any of this on Tuukka".

"They're a team that works hard and gets their chances by putting the puck on net and converging", Bergeron said. "It was a nice move, fresh ice too, so I probably should've recognized that, but yeah, good move". Teams have changed, players have changed but the uniform crest hasn't, so we know what they're capable of. I think that makes it easier for sure ...

Instead, over time, the challenge that the Bruins present, which includes and won't be limited to their huge talent and often overwhelming physicality, the hostile environment they call home and the confidence borne out of previous successes, all seemed more manageable this time.

It was a subtle sequence in the third period of the Maple Leafs' convincing 4-1 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. The last attempt was by Philadelphia's Ville Leino in 2010.

Toronto leaned on Frederik Andersen to secure the result with the Bruins pressing desperately in the third period.
