    I remember when TSN used to be a professional sports site, now this:

    Haha, what is that?

    Gotta give it to Babcock for taking advantage of the last change.

    Pierre made a comment about Plecky having some trouble trying to figure out his place on the team and that he just needs to relax and take it Game by game.

    By getting bumped up in an important role last night, he excelled, much to Bruins fans dismay.

    I fully expect the next 2 games to be reffed a lot tighter as the series is starting to get chippy.

    That was an entertaining game and that was the Toronto I was expecting to see this series. Both teams got away with alot last night. The B's had their chances but couldn't convert and Andersson kept Toronto ahead. Babcock used his home ice advantage beautifully. The B's D has been VERY aggressive these 3 games, almost too aggressive and Toronto's stretch pass has been catching them off guard. I'm hoping the B's are coming home up 3-1 with Kadri making his return. 2-2 with Kadri coming back will be a whole new series.

    Not all bruin fans care for Jack. Personally I can't stand him. I now listen to away game commentators. It's too bad because Andy Brickley is very good.

    Entertaining game for sure. Bruins could have easily been up about 6-4 if Andersen wasnt lucky and we buried our chances. Not worried about the series - Boston still clearly he better team.

    Leafs showed good composure not running up the score in the 3rd ;)

    :clap:

    I feel your pain bro. Not just Andersen either, Plecanek was lucky too. Also Rielly, Marner, Matthews and a few others. So much bad luck all packed into one game, you poor thing.

    lol what a loser post. You're aware Kapenen hit a post and Rask didn't exactly play like an "unlucky" player either right?

    I'm shocked about Plekanec.....

    I really hope the reffing doesn't tighten up. Its actually looking like hockey now.

    I guess our players hitting the post multiple times doesn't count as luck for the Bruins?

    The Bs were outmatched lastnight

    Gotta give Leafs props. Every line won their matchup except the 4th line, where the Bruins 2 goals came from.

    When the leafs got their chances, they were serious goddamn chances. I could see this being a homebarn series. Could definitely go to 7. You guys aren't giving the leafs enough credit.

    Then I suggest you buy NESN and sign Jack's paychecks.

    Pick any of the following reasons;

    1. The series is 2-1
    2. They're in TO where they have been dominate all season
    3. They did a 180 from their previous two games
    4. People care more about the Leafs than your team
    5. Hope sells

    Uh.......we played our best game of the series so far, for sure. But the Bruins outshot us 42-30 and had some insane chances last night. If Andersen hadn't stood on his head, they could easily have won that game. Andersen was our best player by far.

    I'm glad we won. But lets not get silly about it.
