Toronto Maple Leafs pushed to the brink after Bruins win Game 4

Boston Bruins' Anton Khudobin, of Kazakhstan blocks a shot by Toronto Maple Leafs' Zach Hyman during the third period of Game 5 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series in Boston Saturday

The Bruins set themselves up nicely on Thursday evening, stealing a win in Toronto to bring their series lead to 3-1 and demoralizing the large crowd that packed the Air Canada Center (and braved the cold in Maple Leaf Square) to watch the game. He has five assists through the first three games of Boston's first-round matchup against the Leafs, which the Bruins lead 2-1. Goalie Probables: The Maple Leafs will be sending out Frederik Andersen and he will be opposed by Tuukka Rask.

Toronto enters the matchup with the second-strongest power-play unit in the National Hockey League, as it's converted on 24.8 percent of its extra-man advantages in 2017-18.

Brad Marchand scored what turned out to be the game victor in the second period. As mentioned prior, they just need to crash the net.

So now, as the Leafs try to avoid elimination with their top line of Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Zach Hyman spinning its wheels, Kadri has to make amends if they are to survive for Game 6. The Leafs will hope to break Boston's suffocating home-ice defensive line matching dressing a deep, speed based lineup that should hopefully be able to exploit the Bruins weaker players.

In those nine games, Rask had a 2.44 GAA and a.913 save percentage, not as good as his regular-season numbers, but far better than his overall closeout-game statistics.

My prediction is that the Maple Leafs will beat the Bruins by a score of 5-4. Andersen has gone 11-3 in 15 career games against the Bruins and he has allowed 2.40 gpg in those games. In the postseason, the team is attempting an average of 32.8 shots on goal and up to 4.3 goals per game.

The B's, ahead 3-1 in the series after winning Game 4 in Toronto on Thursday night without Bergeron, won't let that lead influence any decisions.

Brad Marchand scored the victor and Tuukka Rask made 31 saves as the Boston Bruins defeated the Leafs 3-1 to grab a commanding 3-1 lead in their first-round series. They won the first two game here by a combined 12-4 count, so they have to be very confident heading into this game.

When Kadri saw Bruins forward Tommy Wingels hit Leafs sparkplug Mitch Marner in that game, he suffered a massive a brain cramp, driving Wingels's head into the boards.

Marchand snapped a 1-1 tie with 3:05 left in the second period after the Bruins were whistled for icing.

Jake DeBrusk had a phenomenal game on Thursday. They ultimately lost in Game 7 after the Bruins' historic comeback. David Pastrnak gave the Bruins a pair of helpers and Tuukka Rask recorded 31 stops for his third win of the series. Babcock put his top line, centred by Auston Matthews, out hoping to pounce on a exhausted group, but Nash won the draw to Adam McQuaid, whose clearing attempt up the boards skipped past pinching Toronto defenceman Jake Gardiner. You know the other team's going to come out hard and do whatever they can to try to win.

"It doesn't matter (if Bergeron's out)", Marchand said.
