This was a "do-or-die" game for the blue and white, and they headed into the matchup down several key players. Two-way dynamo Nazem Kadri suspended or not, an agitating Leo Komarov still out and wheezing or not, the Bruins were always going to be on the receiving end of the Leafs' best possible punch - or falling ice - upon their arrival to the Air Canada Centre.
It was a monumental performance for the 21-year-old, who becomes the youngest player in National Hockey League history to record six points in a playoff game, surpassing Wayne Gretzky's record by four months.
A win would also give the Bruins a 3-0 edge for the first time in any series since the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals against the Penguins, a series that the Bruins ultimately took by way of a sweep. "It's all we'll focus on right now".
BOUNCE BACK FROM FREDERIK ANDERSEN - Andersen admittedly hasn't been there to bail his team out through the first two games of the series and found himself yanked in Game 2 after allowing three goals on five shots.
- Patrick Marleau's second- and third-period goals were the 69th and 70th of his playoff career, tying him with Detroit Red Wings legend Steve Yzerman for 16th all-time.
Weapons inspectors 'barred entry to Douma'
Moscow immediately denied the charge and blamed delays on retaliatory US-led missile strikes on Syria at the weekend. On Saturday, the Syrian army said the regime had retaken all of Eastern Ghouta after the last rebels left Douma.
For additional context to their four posts in the 4-2 loss, the Bruins rang iron just 59 times in the regular season.
This was a period filled with intense back-and-forth action. However, for the Toronto Maple Leafs, that saying doesn't hold up. Likely taking exception to a slew foot of Marchand in the third, Rielly went at the Bruins pest with a cross check after a whistle and the latter responded with a baseball type swing that didn't connect.
Toronto led 1-0 after the first, but Boston tied it at 3:06 of the second when McQuaid's shot from the point squeezed under Andersen's pad and dribbled in.
Dominic Moore, a healthy scratch in the first two games of the series, was added to the lineup Monday in place of Komarov.
The Matthews line was much better and kept the Bruins on the defensive in the early going and then hit its stride in the second period. That's quite an accomplishment.
Allegiant Air under fire following '60 Minutes' safety report
Allegiant Air's ( ALGT ) safety and maintenance records came under scrutiny in a double-length " 60 Minutes " segment Sunday. She heard about the 60 Minutes story an hour before her cab was supposed to take her and her friends to the airport.
"Them" would refer loosely to the Leafs youthful skill brigade of Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, William Nylander and Kasperi Kapanen.
Colorado scored the first goal in both games and was able to play on even terms for 40 minutes in Game 1 before dropping a 5-2 decision. Each of those four had their moments in Game 3 after largely being suppressed back in Beantown.
This next game will dictate the rest of the series. You see the nice goals, it looks pretty easy for them.
This was a huge win for the Leafs and was a huge step forward for them to bounce back in the series. This, of course, compared to Matthews seeing Bergeron for a combined 12:49 of his 27:32 in Games 1 and 2 in Boston made an obvious difference. Jake Gardiner, who was downright disastrous in the opening two games of this series, came through with a noticeably stronger performance.
