Maple Leafs narrow gap in Game 3

Maple Leafs narrow gap in Game 3

Early in Boston's 4-2 loss in Game 3 to the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre, Bruins foward Riley Nash was handed a delay of game penalty for clearing the puck over the glass from inside his zone.

Matthews got his first point of the series with a goal in the second period that ended up being the game-winner. Boston had several more opportunities than the Leafs and could have easily taken the lead.

Cassidy spoke to the officials at the beginning of the second period and wanted to know who of the four (two referees, two linesmen) chose to give Nash the two-minute penalty. There's no call immediately. He got shots on net early and often and it paid dividends for him in this one. "I didn't think it was".

"We were a foot away from him with a stick and he jams one underneath the bar on the short side with an all-world shot", Cassidy said. You have to be sure it goes out to make that call. Toronto finished third in goals scored and second in power-play percentage.

As for the overall Leafs effort, the Bruins weren't expecting to sweep their way to an easy first-round victory, especially given their divisional rival's success at the Air Canada Centre. His reaction to struggling in Boston also was not what you'd want to hear from a leader and a great player.

"I guess you have checking matchups, you have offensive matchups against them", said Cassidy.

Boston's top line of David Pastrnak (four goals, five assists), Brad Marchand (one goal, five assists) and Patrice Bergeron (five assists) totaled 20 points through the first six periods of the series while also holding Matthews and Toronto's top unit off the scoresheet.

However, replays clearly showed that Nash's clear attempt rode up the glass before going out of play, meaning it shouldn't have been a penalty. "We addressed it for three games and (on Monday) they were able to do it. Why? Frustrating but we will move on".

"But they eventually find their game and get it back and away they go".

Leafs winger Patrick Marleau, the veteran signed to provide offense in this type of situation, scored twice, including a goal that put Toronto up 4-2 late in the third period. "Now we got to go on the road and obviously it's going to be a lot tougher playing in their home building and trying to grind out some wins out of there".

Lifelong Leafs fans admit the first 2 games were crushing but they're not jumping off the bandwagon just yet.

The 15-year National Hockey League veteran, who was acquired from Montreal at the National Hockey League trade deadline, will center Toronto's second line when the Leafs try to get back in the series against Boston at Air Canada Centre.
