Leafs find new ways to blow Game 7 in Boston

Maple Leafs moment of silence

I thought I did things right for the most part and just couldn't capitalize on the opportunities.

A general lack of team toughness was also apparent against the more aggressive Bruins.

The #14 pick in the 2015 entry draft, often gets lumped in with the narrative that the Bruins passed on Matt Barzal with their 3 straight picks in the draft.

Both players returned to the game.

"They're our most important line".

All season long, even some of Cassidy's seemingly head-scratching decisions paid off for the Bruins. However, just 30 seconds into the game, Toronto went to the powerplay as Sean Kuraly was called for tripping.

The cast of characters is largely different, and the Leafs didn't give up a late three-goal lead on this night, but they did surrender advantages of 1-0, 2-1 and 4-3, refusing to punch back when the Bruins came hard in the third.

Matthews directed 27 pucks on goal against Boston - tied for fourth in the entire first round - but had a shooting percentage of just 3.7 over the seven games. That lead didn't last for much longer, as DeBrusk tipped a David Pastrnak shot past Andersen. The scoring continued, as a few minutes after DeBrusk's goal, Toronto got their lead back.

Woman kills husband's mistress then turns gun on herself, police say
Meredith Chapman is a former candidate for Delaware's State Senate and the wife of a former Newark city councilman Luke Chapman . A wife ended her life after allegedly shooting a woman she believed was having an affair with her husband, police say.

From Morgan Rielly, with his lip busted up after taking a Zdeno Chara shot to the face. He returned to the game to start the 2nd period. The B's killed off Nash's penalty and the Bruins kept pressing for the remainder of the period.

In prioritizing the reasons for their early exit, the ineffectiveness of Matthews in the series is not something to be glossed over, but it was not due to some perceived difficulties between the 20-year-old and head coach Mike Babcock, is is more because the Bruins matched two Hall-of-Famers and a future All-Star (Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron and Charlie McAvoy) up against the Calder Trophy victor for the most of the series. Fine. And to be sure, the second Leafs goal really ought to be stopped.

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron got an early and valuable lesson in Game 7 management from former linemate and Hockey Hall of Fame winger Mark Recchi.

To say that this period was one of the worst periods of the series is a huge understatement. Between the two, they only had two points in the first two games - both coming from Marner. Boston had difficulty in the neutral zone and entering the Leafs zone.

Marchand had been on the ice for a long time and was dead exhausted, but it was still one of the best-shorthanded efforts you will see, especially in a game like this.

The Bruins then went on the power play, with Andersen robbing Krug on a spectacular save from the slot to set up Kapanen shorthanded. (Whenever Matthews managed to get away from Marchand, he went from a 41% to a 56% possession rating). It's impressive they still get the puck on the net. A little bit better. However, he wasn't the only young Bruins buck stomping on the Maple Leafs.

"(After the Torey Krug goal 70 seconds into the third), we were still in a good spot there. And instead of being a wet-nosed rookie trying to fit in, DeBrusk's a full-fledged permanent member of the Bruins' top six and a player they count on to help carry them, even during the sludge of a seven-game series against Toronto.

"It's the same kind of pressure we've felt these last two games, where we've been facing elimination", he said.
