Marchand, Bruins top Maple Leafs to force Game 7

Leafs Report Cards — Game 5 at Boston

The Sharks almost forced a Game 7 in overtime when they came *this close* to scoring, but a couple of Vegas defensemen came to the rescue.

One fan chose to take his anger out in a more productive way by placing a wanted poster outside TD Garden before Game 5 Friday night. Ghosts of past playoff failures, however, still linger. DeBrusk left the puck for David Krejci on a 2-on-2 rush before getting inside position on Maple Leafs forward Andreas Johnsson and making a diving stab at the return feed at 7:57.

Maple Leafs defenceman Jake Muzzin has extra motivation to beat Boston on Sunday and eliminate the Bruins in six games: It would mean some extra time to spend with his brand-new baby daughter.

First assembled with re-imagining all that was possible with the man advantage in mind, the Toronto Maple Leafs' No. 1 power play unit has been without the freedom to achieve a potential only slightly distorted by preseason hyperbole. The Leafs came out swinging, the Bruins responded, and kept their opponent at bay long enough to force another winner-take-all affair.

"I think they're doing a good job of keeping us to the outside", Bergeron said.

While last year's series was close in that it went the distance, the teams are more evenly matched in 2019.

The Boston Bruins were tied with the Flames for the 2nd most points in the league, but unless they win this game, they will be joining the Flames in watching the rest of the playoffs from the comfort of their own home. Any opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect those of 98.5 The Sports Hub, Beasley Media Group, or any subsidiaries. "It really comes down to the commitment to do it right". But a bad bounce on one power play resulted in a goal by Brad Marchand and sagging on the next power play allowed Torey Krug to score.

Toronto took a 1-0 lead midway into the first period but lost the lead two minutes later on a power-play goal.

The OVER is now 5-1 in the last six games for the Golden Knights, and 4-1 in this first-round playoff series.

Ultimately, it came down to their performance in the third quarter, as they were outscored 35 to 17 in that quarter. He finished the night with totals of 26 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

"We started really well, we played really well and then, boom", Mike Babcock said. "It's time for us to stop having the breakdowns".

The Bruins were the better team in the second period, out-possessing and out-chancing the Leafs from almost start to finish.

"It's a new set of circumstances", Tavares said.

"I'm not a big believer of living in the past".

"There hasn't been a whole lot of momentum carried in this series (no team has won twice in a row), actually none".

Boston has also made changes, but a battle-tested core remains the backbone of their lineup. Despite Sunday's setback, Babcock is confident his team can end that drought too. It's the most important game of the season, and I didn't show up.

The Toronto Maple Leafs got a lucky break in game five of this best-of-seven series and now they hope to parlay that break into moving on to the 2nd round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Leafs' formula on Tuesday won't be much different.

"You want to take care of business on home ice", Zach Hyman said. "We won't be timid".
