David Pastrnak also scored for Boston, and Sean Kuraly bunted one out of the air and into the net over goalie Frederik Andersen to make it 4-1 with seven minutes gone in the third period.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are in a tough spot. They’ve simply been outplayed in their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Boston Bruins, and unless something changes quickly, their postseason will be ending sooner rather than later.They were knocked around 5-1 in Game 1 before getting trounced 7-3 in Game 2. Now, they’re back in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre, hoping to turn things around and salvage their season.And like many teams do this time of year, the Leafs placed rally towels on the seats of the ACC, but they elected to go white towels, which sure seems like a symbol for waving the white flag of surrender.Take a look and judge for yourself.
Ironic.

Of course, many not too encouraged by the Leafs’ chances weighed in on the color choice on Twitter.

Maple Leafs’ Nazem Kadri’s dangerous hit has no place in hockey

  Maple Leafs’ Nazem Kadri’s dangerous hit has no place in hockey There should be no place in hockey for the dangerous hit that the Maple Leafs' Nazem Kadri laid on the Boston Bruins' Tommy Wingels during Game 1 on Thursday night. Kadri got a game misconduct and five-minute major for charging Wingels, and there's a good chance he hears from NHL Player Safety and faces a supplemental suspension since it includes all the elements of a dirty play. Kadri leaves his feet on the hit, catches Wingels in the numbers and sends him head first into the boards.Here's a closer look at the hit.Full sequence on the Wingels-Kadri incident.

The Maple Leafs sure are aware of their predicament. They’ve been worked over by Boston’s top line, allowing 20 combined points for the trio, which incited a pretty funny comment from Toronto head coach Mike Babcock about the productivity.Puck drop for Game 3 will be at 7 p.m. ET.

3 factors that will decide Game 7 between Bruins, Maple Leafs .
After the Bruins initially seemed poised to wrap up their first-round matchup with the Maple Leafs in four, Toronto clawed its way back to force a winner-take-all Game 7 on Wednesday night in Boston. This series has been similar to the first-round meeting between these two clubs in 2013, with the Bruins taking a 3-1 stranglehold once again, only to see the Leafs even things up in Game 6. Maple Leafs fans are painfully aware of how that series ended, but a new year brings new hope.
