What the Bruins are saying about another playoff matchup with Toronto

What the Bruins are saying about another playoff matchup with Toronto

Ron Hainsey #2 of the Toronto Maple Leafs skates against the Nashville Predators during the first period at Bridgestone Arena on March 19, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee.

All the Toronto Maple Leafs want to do is look forward. "It drives you to work harder and do better".

"I think Boston has a complete hockey team", said Tavares. "I keep saying it: the guys in that dressing room - and I'm going to say it - I'm proud of how hard they worked". In that game, Toronto led 4-3 in the third period before succumbing to the Bruins.

For Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock, it's proof that things are going in the right direction. I just think that the honest game that Boston plays and the depth that they have and how they're structured, I think it will be a very competitive series but I think at the end, very similar to Washington's qualities, Boston has guys that have been there and won. "So we're still disappointed, but I don't think anybody is going to doubt that this team had a lot of character". But I can tell you, we can't find another one. I predict that Boston will give it a good series, but will ultimately fall short against the league's most dominant squad. The Leafs' plans have not been announced, and the Bruins will have the last change in the first two games, but Marner said his line won't be distracted by Marchand's antics.

"That's a good question", Babcock said. "So then they ran with that for a while". But I mean, we all lost, we were all there ...

While the six-foot-two, 203-pound native of Minnetonka, Minn., said last year's playoff defeat is behind him, he admitted it took some time for that to happen. But things really broke nicely for them in 2018, and Carolina is sneaky good.

Gardiner had three goals and 27 assists in 62 games this season.

Poehling beat Frederik Andersen glove side in the shootout and goalie Charlie Lindgren, in his first game of the season, stopped Kasperi Kapanen to finish it. The eight-year veteran is in the final year of his contact and that uncertainty does create a sense of urgency heading into the post-season. And in a way that really takes advantage of the intimacy, immediacy, and mobility of the iPhone.

Gardiner said parenthood is giving him much-needed perspective. He and wife Lucy welcomed a son, Henry John, into the world last September.

More on that in a bit...

"He's been a blessing, he's been awesome". With that said, there's still something intriguing about getting the Maple Leafs as an underdog, one of the most explosive offensive teams in the league and are a club capable of doing serious damage when they get the puck moving. I think that's what you've got to be careful of. "Now we feel confident, we like our structure, we like what we have going on". Game 2 is Saturday night before the best-of-seven series moves to Toronto for Games 3 and 4 on The two teams also played in the first round previous year, when Boston won in seven games.
