    I feel like they are really having to hook and hold to deal with our speed, we should get some PPs. Not that they are calling shit on Boston yet.

    Wasn't retaliation he was clearly trying to lift his stick to strip him of the puck. Those things happen every game and go uncalled as often as they are called.

    They will do a trap reminiscent to what Carolina does. They will: 1. Concede possession. 2. Keep the puck in deep for the D to try to move / pass. 3. They will have two forwards up on the half wall forcing a pass or turnover. 4. Three players will line up on the Blueline. You heard it here first.

    THE BATTLE BEGINS IN BOSTON,.............................................. ...''IN THEIR NEIGHBOURHOOD'' BUCK FOSTON!!! TONIGHT,... LIVE,...IT'S THE LONG AWAITED MEETING BETWEEN THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS AND THE BOSTON BRUINS ! MAPLE LEAFS at BRUINS 7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS, NESN The Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins will play for the second conecutive season in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference First Round, with Game 1 at TD Garden on Thursday. The Bruins won in seven games last season. Boston, which went 3-1-0 against Toronto during the regular season, hopes to continue its recent postseason success against the Maple Leafs, who hold an 8-7 edge on the Bruins all-time in the playoffs. Here are 5 keys for Game 1: 1. Get past the past The Maple Leafs lost to the Bruins in Game 7 last season, just as they did in 2013. Toronto hasn't won a playoff series since 2004. There would be no better team to do it against than Boston, exorcising some demons in the process. Not that the Bruins are counting on the past informing the future. They know this Maple Leafs team is different, starting with the addition of center John Tavares, as well as in terms of its play and its maturity. "I don't think anything in the past has anything to do with this season," Bruins forward Brad Marchand said. "I don't think they're concerned about it. We're not thinking about it. It really has no implication on this series at all." 2. Guarding the net Perhaps the most vulnerable spot for the Maple Leafs is in goal, where Frederik Andersen stumbled down the stretch; he was 4-3-4 with an .889 save percentage in the final 12 games after going 32-13-3 with a .924 save percentage in his first 48 games. And that comes after he had a 3.76 goals-against average and an .896 save percentage during an up-and-down performance against the Bruins in the first round last season. So the pressure is on Andersen, especially because Toronto doesn't have a reliable backup behind him, as the Bruins do with Jaroslav Halak behind Tuukka Rask. Toronto elevated Michael Hutchinsonover Garret Sparks at the end of the season, but Sparks rejoined the Maple Leafs on Wednesday with Hutchinson's wife about to have a baby. NHL Tonight: Leafs vs. Bruins 01:58 • April 7th, 2019 3. Strength against strength The Bruins can be a dynamic offensive team, led by their top line of Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak. But the Maple Leafs are the ones who really shine offensively, finishing the season fourth in the NHL in goals per game (3.49). The Bruins finished tied for third in the League in goals-against per game (2.59) and allowed 128 goals at 5-on-5, second-fewest in the NHL (New York Islanders, 127), even with an often-rotating group of defensemen. So who wins the matchup? Can forwards Auston Matthews, Mitchell Marner and Tavares and their teammates prevail? Or will it be Zdeno Chara and the rest of the Bruins defensemen, combined with their goaltending and help from the forwards? The ability of Boston to control Toronto's speed and stretch passes will go a long way in determining which team advances to the second round. 4. Top heavy The Bruins defeated the Maple Leafs in 2018 primarily on the backs of their top line of Marchand, Bergeron and Pastrnak. Though coach Bruce Cassidy experimented with splitting them and sending Pastrnak to the second line with center David Krejci, he's going all in on the top line to start the series. That should work heavily in the Bruins' favor. Though the Tampa Bay Lightning succeeded in slowing that line in the second round last season in a five-game series victory, the Maple Leafs never did in the first round. If that line can in any way replicate its play from the regular season, especially Marchand, who tied for fifth in the NHL with 100 points (36 goals, 64 assists), or from the 2018 series against the Maple Leafs, when the three combined for 30 points (nine goals, 21 assists) in seven games, it would be a significant advantage for Boston. 5. Depth down the middle This is where the Maple Leafs sparkle. Toronto added Tavares as a free agent July 1, 2018 to join Matthews and Nazem Kadri to create outstanding depth at center. But the Bruins upgraded as well. After spending much of the season with their third-line center up in the air, they acquired Charlie Coyle in a trade with the Minnesota Wild on Feb. 20. "Our addition of Charlie Coyle has really kind of solidified that spot," Cassidy said. "We've got two Stanley Cup champions [in Bergeron and Krejci] in front of him. … They're obviously strong down the middle, Tavares, Matthews, Kadri. But we don't feel they're better than us there. We just feel that that's probably the strength of both teams when you look at them on paper." Maple Leafs projected lineup Zach Hyman -- John Tavares -- Mitchell Marner Andreas Johnsson -- Auston Matthews -- Kasperi Kapanen Patrick Marleau -- Nazem Kadri -- William Nylander Trevor Moore -- Frederik Gauthier -- Connor Brown Morgan Rielly -- Ron Hainsey Jake Muzzin -- Nikita Zaitsev Jake Gardiner -- Travis Dermott Frederik Andersen Garret Sparks Scratched: Tyler Ennis, Nic Petan, Martin Marincin, Calle Rosen, Michael Hutchinson, Joseph Woll Injured: None Bruins projected lineup Brad Marchand -- Patrice Bergeron -- David Pastrnak Jake DeBrusk -- David Krejci -- Karson Kuhlman Marcus Johansson -- Charlie Coyle -- Danton Heinen Joakim Nordstrom -- Noel Acciari -- Chris Wagner Zdeno Chara -- Charlie McAvoy Torey Krug -- Brandon Carlo Matt Grzelcyk -- Connor Clifton Tuukka Rask Jaroslav Halak Scratched: David Backes, Steven Kampfer Injured: Kevan Miller (lower body), John Moore (upper body), Sean Kuraly (fractured hand) Status report Hutchinson is away from the Maple Leafs to be with his wife and baby, who was born Thursday. … Clifton replaces Miller.

    The Official WWE Thread

    Because if wwe is known for one thing,its ability to plan feuds well in advance lol At this point, doesn't matter. WM is over, onto next week because wwe doesn't have offseason. Speaking of offseason, that's one of many things we could see out of the new AEW promotion. Rumors saying they could end up on TNT or TBS. TV show begins in October. Theres also a chance it airs on TSN. With Rogers having wwe rights, bell going after AEW would make sense

    It was, but NHL/PA found no issues with this current format so they extended it by a season (and most likely it stays until next CBA, where I'm sure players will express opinions on it to the NHLPA and try to have it changed. Knowing NHL, they're keeping a bad format so it seems like a new format is something they're giving the players as part of a new CBA). If NHL wants to create deeper rivalries, why not have more divisions with fewer teams that you play more often? 4x4 divisions per conference. Play other conference 1 time each(you play 2 divisions at home, and 2 on the road, so it alternates each year). That totals 16 games. Play other 3 divisions in your conference 4 times. That's 48 games. Play own division 6 times. That's 18 games. So you have 82 games right there. Less traveling, you still get to play each team in the league (only downside is you don't visit every arena each season, but you still play in other conference arenas every other year), and we see heavy emphasis on divisional games.

    Tampa swept the Jackets in regular season. Outscored them 17-3 (biggest goal differential vs any opponent all season). Lightning were leading 3-0 after 1. 3-1 after 2. They were 31-1-2 in regular season when leading after 1. 39-2-2 when leading after 2. Jackets were 2-23-1 when trailing after 2. Jackets win 4-3 in regulation. So anyone writing off Leafs before puck is even dropped, don't know what else to say.

    1. ed belfour was better than any goalie in the game today. multiple shutouts in every playoff run. 2. it was a hooking and holding era of slow, grinding play. that doesn't equate to sound defensively, it just equates to a slower game with lower scores. 3. players from his tenure are on the record as stating the reason they likely didn't go all the way was because of quinn's utter lack of attention to defensive systems. regardless of that carolina game, winning 1-0, we weren't a defensive stalwart at *any* point under quinn, and to pretend we magically pulled it together defensively is nonsense revisionist history. we battled through teams, and we were loaded with talent & experience, that's how we won during that era. intimidation, drive, effort, skill, and ridiculous goaltending. not defensive play.
