Bruins looked slow and gave up a lot of breakaways.
Chara looks useless.

Toronto has more talent.
I only caught the last 15 minutes, but what I saw was a bunch of unforced tunovers at the Leaf blueline by Boston. A few good bounces in front of the net for the Leaves kept Boston from burying some garbage, but Toronto definitely has more weapons throughout the lineup when it comes to scoring.

Boston didn't play Bruin hockey though, and they have to. They don't have the speed to play the same game as Toronto. From this game it seems they need to physically wear down guys like Nylander, Marner, Gardiner, and Reilly to win.
I agree with this. Cassidy tried his "Fast" lineup and it was still far too slow. They can't match Leaves speed and overall skill, You'll see a change next game.
The one thing that's clear is Toronto was not taking the regular season very seriously (I always said they had another gear).
I didn't see another gear from Toronto. I saw the same gear they were in up until mid February, and that's not meant as a slight of any kind, it's a high gear, it's just not "another" gear.....but like I said, I only caught the last 15 minutes. I saw Boston try to play Toronto's game, which they can't.

Boston knows game 1 means fuck all. Its their signature move
Same as Pittsburgh. Both classically take a couple games to get any traction in the playoffs.

While I doubt that's actually gonna happen, I'd love to see it. First round upsets are great.

Tkachuk is a punk, ignoring him is the best policy. Engage only when absolutely necessary. Ignore him and he will be less effective and get frustrated and be the one in the box.

Johnson had better figure that out soon or he's gonna be a one man parade to the penalty box.

Pittsburgh is playing a team severely lacking in talent. Boston is not.

We need better HVAC in the Leaves thread. There's a fishy smell getting into the adjacent topics.
