Bruins vs. Maple Leafs Game 2: Full highlights, final score and more

Whoever wins between the Bruins and Maple Leafs could go a long way. More

That's when Rask showed up to deny them at the doorstep. Mitch Marner finished off a give-and-go with Zach Hyman in transition on their first shift with William Nylander at centre, and Auston Matthews got a risky chance on Tuukka Rask. With his six points on the night, the 21-year-old became the youngest player to achieve that honor in a playoff game.

Toronto swarmed the Bruins net for most of the opening five minutes, consistently gaining entry into the Bruins' zone and winning puck battles. The Boston Bruins have allowed three or less goals in 11 of their last 16 games.

"I don't think I can say it with cameras here", a smiling Pastrnak told reporters when asked what he would have said had you told him a night like this was going to happen.

The changes didn't stop the Bruins from dominating the first period, and chasing Leafs' goalie Frederik Andersen after just 12 minutes, 13 seconds.

Mitch Marner, with a goal and an assist, Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk replied for the Leafs. Five of the six final entries on this list of 10 great post-season performances come from Hall of Famers and honest-to-goodness legends of the game.

Kuraly competed in his fifth playoff game and scored his first playoff goal by swatting home an elevated Pastrnak rebound to put the Bruins up 4-1 at 7:41 of the third.

Pastrnak has the creativity of a scorer and the work-ethic of a grinder, which makes him the ideal fit alongside Bergeron and Marchand on the Bruins' top line.

The Leafs learned Friday night that centre Nazem Kadri would be suspended three games by the National Hockey League for his hit on Bruins forward Tommy Wingels in the third period of Thursday's 5-1 loss that kicked off their Eastern Conference quarterfinal. They would undoubtedly be able to possess the puck more than any other Leafs trio, which would mitigate the scoring chances the Bruins' top unit creates, and the penalties they've been able to draw.

The best and worst from UFC on Fox 29
Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier met at UFC 211 back in May, but the bout ended as a no contest and was filled with controversy. The decision turned out to be a smart one as Poirier quickly rocked Gaethje to open Round 4 with a stiff counter left hand.

Pastrnak added his second of the night with 7:26 remaining in the third when he was allowed to walk out from behind the net untouched after Marchand lost the handle on a breakaway. You know, that's great but it's the way he's playing.

After Andersen exited, Curtis McElhinney inherited the 3-0 deficit and didn't fare much better against the high-flying Bruins, turning aside 19 of 23 shots for an.826 save percentage. Rask did over-commit a bit to the right, but it was still a case of the puck bouncing perfectly Toronto's way.

Gallant: When they were within one goal, people start saying, 'They're going to lose this'.

"He's done that all year", said Marchand. Tampa needed all of Vas's 41 saves to get this win. They put a push on and it easily could've been a different game.

Cassidy reminded the media after Game 2 that Boston had 12 shooters in double figures this season. But defensively, they did start to look gassed and disorganized late in the second and in the first half of the third. We've got to go home, get out of here. "Six points in a Stanley Cup Playoff game with a hat trick, that's special".

"Coaches talk to me every day through the whole season and especially playing with Bergy and Marchy - these guys know what it takes", Pastrnak said about learning from Bergeron and Marchand.

Masters: Boston had always been the team they could not beat, that embarrassed them the previous year. They had the sound turned off. They're good in transition.

Hadfield: They were starting to play just as we were getting ready to undock, and the last I heard was that we were ahead, and the team was doing well.
