    No excuses if the leafs lose, the bruins deserve it. They are a elite team mind you. The leafs are a really good team as well. The bruins slapped the leafs in game 1 and 2. But I think toronto has the ability to make this a best of 3 series. Kadri or not this series should be 6 games atleast woth a game 7 looking possible. Just need Marchand to be himself and snap. Get himself suspended and the leafs can capitalize. Pasta and Bergeron are not dirty players for most part. Marchand looked angry tonight. He will either light up the board game 4 or do something really stupid. Hoping as a leaf fan he tries to cross check or slow foot someone and gets suspended for a game or two.

    Was just a strangely reffed game. Not sure that's whining. From the delay of game penalty to the we won't call it icing and a few in between, there were a few weird calls tonight that aren't actually judgement calls. Was a bit bewildered on the over the glass penalty. I don't expect refs to be perfect but... ? Really?

    I'd say the game was reffed no worse or better than the other games. Lots of crap got let go, don't think one team got away with more than the other. Plenty of missed calls around but the one positive was better linesmen compared to game 2 so that's a plus.

    Honestly, the refs didn’t help Boston as much as the first two games. It’s reallt not fair to the Bruins. They got used to getting a PP for every hit and mean look against, and it was just taken away!

    They still got away with a good half dozen blatantly dirty plays, but just getting away with it isn’t good enough. They’re used to being rewarded for it!

    Very unfair.

    The fact that it wasn't an interference penalty on Marchand is a joke in itself, Edwards makes it 10x worse with that stupid commentary

    There was tons of talk about that, as well as about 10 interference penalties that went uncalled against the B's, as well as the countless blown/missed calls in game 1/2.

    Pierre McGuire was commenting on it all game on the NBCSN feed. He eventually seemed pretty annoyed.

    Good game Leafs, really need to tighten up in the D-zone, hung Andersen out to dry the entire game.

    This is legitimately one of the most hilarious things I’ve ever heard. Jacky Boy lost his mind over this among all things? :laugh: Leafs had possession immediately after and it arguably should have been interference on Marchand.

    Boston has looked worlds better in the series. Tons of teams win their first on home ice and then lose in 5 or 6, and that will be the case here.

    Good game by the Leafs.

    Have to expect the Bruins to come out with there best game Thursday, wanting to finish it at home Saturday.

    Going to be a beauty game.

    This is random but the Capitals and Rangers have great commentators for the games shown on their local channels. Professional. I mean they still kind of root for the team, but they do it in a way that still makes them come off as professional and trustworthy.

    The better stat is that Marchand and Bergeron seem rattled by him. Hopefully he keeps it up.

    Agreed, it was weird they let Hyman get slew footed right in the middle of the play with no call.

    Watching the whistles get put away was fun.

    Boston did a good jon clogging up the middle not allowing the long stretch passes. But you tell me why they were not skating. Because thats the frusturating part of sports. Sometimes you watch your team perform and they just dont do what you know they can do.

    But kappanen actually has exploited your slow d several times already this series... he just hasnt scored. Which is why you have forgotten about it.

    Chara is a slow skater. Thats just as much of a reality as hes also 6’9.

    Leafs were beating him to the pucks on several occasions when they were pressuring.

    Clog up the neutral zone and the leafs forwards cant skate as much.

    Fail at clogging it up and we will skate your d into the ground.
