Game one was a total bust for the Bruins as they fell flat off their faces in a 4-1 blowout loss.
That said, game two is basically a must win for the Bruins as they cannot afford to go down 0-2 and be heading to Toronto for game three.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Maple Leafs were a completely different team in game one as they allowed way under their season average in goals. They will be looking to steal another game on the road, giving them a huge advantage going forward in the series.
The Maple Leafs offense once again shined, scoring 4 goals against a very tough defense. Mitchell Marner was the hero, scoring two goals an adding to his overall point total this season. He is now at 96 points on the year and now has 28 goals this season.
For once the defense really stepped up, holding the Bruins to one goal that came in the first period. The goalie, Frederik Anderson, should be credited for his outstanding play. He made 37 saves on the night, with a save percentage of .974. This was just game one however, so he will need to have an identical performance to help put his team up two games.
The Bruins were shocked in game one as they could not get anything going on either side of the puck. After scoring the first goal in the game, they allowed 4 goals unanswered, which has put them in a deep hole.
The Bruins offense was non-existent in game one. Brad Marchand, the Bruins point leader, was not really able to get involved, which crushed the Bruins chances of winning this game. Marchand had just one assist on the goal scored by Patrice Bergeron in the first period, but after that there was nothing to show for. Expect this Boston attack to make adjustments and to come out hungry with their backs to the wall.
The Bruins defense was picked apart the other night, allowing four goals. Their normal average is 2.6, so they really struggled to stop this Maple Leafs attack. Look for them to lock down this time around and make adjustments to give themselves a better chance to win.
