Bruins Fall to Maple Leafs 4-2 in Game 3

Bruins Fall to Maple Leafs 4-2 in Game 3

This was a "do-or-die" game for the blue and white, and they headed into the matchup down several key players.

Centre Dominic Moore will take Komarov's spot in the lineup.

With the series shifting to Air Canada Centre, a push from the Leafs was expected early and the hosts did have it early on. Holden had a goal and five points in 18 regular-season games with the Bruins.

James Van Riemsdyk, Leafs Forward says, "We're upbeat". Through two games it's felt as if Boston is not only the team strong defensively but also the team featuring the high-powered offense as well. Overall, this was the best period we have seen the Leafs play in the entire series. The 20-year-old got his first point of the series on this great shot that beat Tuukka Rask in the second period.

The Maple Leafs finally sealed it with 3:35 left when Marleau scored his second of night on a 2-on-1 rush, firing a shot past Rask for the 70th career playoff goal.

The momentum shifted once again, as Zdeno Chara tied the game just three minutes later, roofing a shot at a tough angle near the Leafs' net. The Bruins won the first two games in Boston.

This was a period filled with intense back-and-forth action.

Clinical KKR crush Daredevils by 71 runs after Russell carnage
Kolkata manged to score 50 runs in the powerplay, after Lynn's (31) recovery and Uthappa, who scored a brisk 35 from 19 balls. But the spin duo of Narine and Kuldeep Yadav (3/32) triggered a spectacular collapse as Delhi folded for 129 in 14.2 overs.

But the Maple Leafs finally had an answer on this night as the Bruins' trio failed to find the range. Likely taking exception to a slew foot of Marchand in the third, Rielly went at the Bruins pest with a cross check after a whistle and the latter responded with a baseball type swing that didn't connect. Frederik Andersen stopped 40 shots.

But the Leafs were well aware of the dangers presented by Pastrnak, Marchand and Patrice Bergeron and adjusted according in the two days between Game 2 and 3. The Wild lost both games in Winnipeg before returning home in Game 3 for a 6-2 victory while looking like a completely different team. This proved to be the dagger as Andersen held down the fort the rest of the way. "At the end of the day they are going to be our best line every night". That's quite an accomplishment.

At the same time, it just wasn't the Bruins' night! The B's potted three in the opener and two more in the Saturday blowout.

However, Frederik Andersen was the difference in this game.

"He'll take warmup", head coach Bruce Cassidy said. The Bruins were unable to execute and they were beaten by the Maple Leafs.

The win not only guarantees Toronto a return trip back to Boston for a Game 5, they will get second line center Nazem Kadri back for at least a game. Largely meaningless to this current group, of course, but the Bruins are 12-2 in their last 14 Game 3 contests dating back to 2010. Let us know in the comment section below.
