Riley Nash expected to return to Bruins lineup for Game 3

Tuesday, 17 Apr, 2018

With only two National Basketball Association games on the docket for Monday night and a lack of enticing Major League Baseball lines, we're headed to the ice to dominate a questionable line.

It took almost eight periods but Toronto's best player has shown up on the scoresheet - and just in time to save Leafs Nation from blowing its collective gasket.

The Leafs took their third lead of the game when their best player, Auston Matthews, finally scored his first goal of the series.

Toronto led 1-0 after the first, but Boston tied things at 3:06 of the second when McQuaid's shot from the point squeezed under Andersen's pad and dribbled in.

Here's a link to the full first-round schedule. "We aren't just, you know, playing against them for four games during the regular season", said Bergeron.

Bruins defenseman and captain Zdeno Chara tied the score 2-2 in the second period with his first goal of the playoffs.

"He's going to skate tomorrow, and then will skate the following day and be a game-time decision (for Game 4)", said Babcock.

Pulled after allowing three goals on five shots in the first period of Game 2, Andersen robbed Pastrnak on a jaw-dropping diving stick save with Rask on the bench for an extra attack with just over two minutes to go to help preserve Toronto's win. "You get up two in the third, you want to be able to win those games".

The Bruins had a couple incredible scoring chances on an early third-period power play.

Nashville is capable of winning on the road, and stars like Filip Forsberg, Roman Josi, Viktor Arvidsson and P.K. Subban can take over any game.

However, instead of cancelling those tickets (as would other teams, such as the Winnipeg Jets), MLSE is charging them a 30-per-cent premium to renew their seasons' seats for next year. Boston has been so dominant offensively, only five Bruins who played in the first two games have failed to register a point.

New Jersey should play its best game on home ice. And while they expected there would be an adjustment, it would not be a long one.

San Jose has won two games in Anaheim and come home with a huge advantage.

On replay, the puck can clearly be seen banking off the glass before sailing into the seats, which should have negated the penalty. Rickard Rakell and Ryan Getzlaf will set the tone, and the Ducks win on the road and start to turn this series around.
