Maple Leafs, Bruins reflect on 'shocking' playoff exit of Lightning

The NHL's department of player safety revealed 45 minutes before Game 3 in Toronto that the mercurial Kadri was suspended for the remainder of the series for his vicious cross-check to the head of Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk in Game 2 on Saturday, a 4-1 win by the Bruins.

Absorbing the loss in game three was Tuukka Rask, who allowed three goals on 34 shot attempts.

Anderson pointed out Tuesday that Pastrnak has 10 shots on goal through the first three games of the series. The Leafs were quick and physical and opportunistic, winning 3-2 in a tight game.

Ty Anderson, 98.5 The Sports Hub: "In a Game 3 loss, the B's may have finally found the one thing they're not built to survive: An ineffective David Pastrnak".

Tampa hadn't played a truly meaningful game in months and were the first team to the qualify for the post-season.

He set up Auston Matthews' first goal of the series to make it 2-1 for Toronto midway through the second period.

"It's not what people expected or figured that was going to happen with the regular season they had", he said. Toronto is winless in their last 7 games following a victory and are just 2-5 in their last 7 home games but they have had Boston's number at home over the last couple of seasons and are hoping that trend carries in their favor tonight. Game 6, if necessary, would be back in Toronto on Sunday.

In 35:57 of five-on-five ice time in the series, the Bergeron line has been out-shot 20-17.

England name preliminary World Cup squad, Jofra Archer left out
Last month David Willey said he was unsure "whether someone should just walk in at the drop of a hat because they're available". Even if Archer is not included in the provisional World Cup squad tomorrow, England can make changes to it until May 23.

What you won't see in the Mueller report
Both of Trump's sons took part in the campaign , though, so Barr's limit might not apply to them either. Sparring over the report in advance of its release is rampant.

Focused Klopp urges Liverpool to get job done in Porto
Joel Matip will nearly certainlyalmost partner Virgil van Dijk in the heart of the Liverpool defence on Wednesday. I like the way they play with the ball and without it, it's similar to how I see football.

Although they're not exactly dominating on the score sheet, the Tavares line is doing what not many lines before them have been able to do in slowing down arguably the league's top line. Despite being outplayed last game, the Bruins still only lost by a goal.

And quite frankly, neither did many others. The latter seems like the more likely option. We played well last game but we have to match it.

Full of confidence from his stint with the Maple Leafs, Johnsson scored 10 goals and 24 points for the Marlies and won the Jack Butterfield Trophy as the American Hockey League's playoff MVP.

"As much as we want to put it all on the Bruins and say 'it's up to them, ' there are two teams out there playing and they're both trying to win", Edwards said. We tried to get away from it on some icings to see if it would work our way. "It's about competing and being your best and bringing the best out of our line". They played largely against the Patrick Marleau, William Nylander, and Connor Brown line, while commonly facing Morgan Rielly, Ron Hainsey, and Jake Gardiner on defense.

Matched up against the Leafs' John Tavares-Mitch Marner combination, we can't ignore the hard matchup in front of Pastrnak and linemates Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

"I think the strategy going in was sound, which is 'they couldn't handle us last year, they couldn't handle the group last year so until they show they can handle it we're going to go back to it, '" Massarotti said. "Do I keep chasing Muzzin out there against the Krejci line now, because Pastrnak's on it, and does that free up Bergeron, or do I keep that first D pair and Tavares on Bergeron?'" Felger said.

Mike Babcock issued a warning of sorts to his Maple Leafs players on Wednesday morning.
