What The Bruins Need To Do To Defeat Leafs In First Round

Adjust Comment Print

For the second straight season, the Bruins will open the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a first-round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. In last year's series against Toronto, the Bergeron line combined for 13 points, with Pastrnak the driving force behind the line's success.

Backes scored seven goals and added 13 assists over 70 games in 2018-19, his lowest point total of his 13-year National Hockey League career.

Maple Leafs: Will face the Boston Bruins in first round of the playoffs. The offense has sputtered of late as they have averaged just 2,70 gpg over their last 10 games.

"But we need to take advantage of our opportunities and make sure we're prepared for each game". The Bruins also won a seven-game series in 2013, when they rallied from 4-1 down in the third period of Game 7 to win in overtime.

Magic Johnson Steps Down as Lakers President
Obviously, James was mostly quiet on the subject for most of the season as he tried to lead the Lakers to the postseason.

The Bruins will trot out Tuukka Rask in this one and he has gone 17-9 with a 2.13 GAA against the Maple Leafs in his career, while he was 1-0 with a 2.00 GAA against them this year. No more licking or any other kind of cheap shot, such as last season's elbow to the head of Marcus Johansson (now his teammate), which drew a five-game suspension.

John Tavares is one key Maple Leaf who has no connection to last year's playoff collapse against the Bruins.

"It's an opportunity to play some guys, we have people a little banged up", Babcock said. "We know that Charlie's line has been deployed against top lines pretty much 75 per cent of the time starting in our own end, so we're comfortable with the matchup if we have to go that route". "It's going to be on the ice, it's going to be amongst two teams". It's such a fine line, no one knows what's going to get called.

Both the Flames and Golden Knights play fast, defensively solid hockey with deep lineups seemingly built for playoff hockey. That patience we can all talk about but sometimes you have to go through it to figure out and understand what it's about.

European Union to grant May a Brexit delay, with conditions
Reuters is reporting that European Union member states will offer an extension to 31 October with a review in June. It had been thought the Conservative leader would push for an extension until June 30, or even until next year.

It's not known who will back up Frederik Andersen in Game 1.

"Obviously it's a different team and you don't want to dwell what's happened in the past". I think that's what you've got to be careful of.

With that said, of course I'm using some statistics to base my opinions on to craft the bracket, but it's all for fun. "You guys love throwing out comparisons and history and all that", Andersen told Sporting News. The last two playoff matchups between these rivals both went seven games, and it wouldn't be a shock if this one went the distance as well. The American-born Poehling, Montreal's first pick (25th overall) in the 2017 draft, recently completed his third NCAA season at St. Cloud State. Let's say you have a tough game, you still come in and bring good energy and focus on what you are going to accomplish the next day. But things really broke nicely for them in 2018, and Carolina is sneaky good.
