Auston Matthews on his poor playoff production: 'frustrating'
Auston Matthews on his poor playoff production: 'frustrating'
27 April, 2018, 00:40
Toronto almost staged a comeback after falling behind in the best-of-seven series 3-1, and took a 4-3 lead into the third period Wednesday night at TD Garden, before surrendering four unanswered Bruins goals, an eerily similar script to the 2013 team that also lost in the first round against Boston in seven games. The Bruins were down 4-3 going into the third period, people were wanting Rask out of the game. His playoff production was down from a season ago, when he recorded four goals and an assist during the Maple Leafs first-round series against the Washington Capitals, where Toronto ultimately fell 4-2 against the Presidents' Trophy winners. On a team that features the likes of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, David Krejci, Rick Nash and Zdeno Chara, DeBrusk was the most consistent player in Black and Gold.
While Tuukka Rask was anything but extraordinary for the Bruins, their defence made the adjustments and limited the damage.
"Boston" for the first time in 2014 will play in the second round of the Stanley Cup, where the Bruins are already waiting for the "Tampa Bay". And five years after the last Game 7 here, they rearranged the scaffolding to collapse in a different way.
"Jake had a real coming-out party in the series", Cassidy said.
The regular season also featured Anders Bjork and Ryan Donato making their marks on the Bruins, who dressed as many as six rookies for some regular-season games. When it mattered most, he took his game to another level. I wanted them to win, but generally speaking, teams that were in last place two years ago aren't supposed to have instant success and beat the best team in the National Hockey League in the first round. "They played well defensively and they forechecked hard, so we needed them".
Bergeron, Marchand and Pastrnak combined for 30 points (nine goals, 21 assists) in Boston's four wins, including seven points (three goals, four assists) in Game 7. We have to find a way to make the most of it.
"Not to justify it or say what I did wasn't wrong, but three games in a playoff series where every single game's (magnified), that's tough to see", said Kadri.
Frederik Andersen had 29 saves for the Maple Leafs, who have not won a playoff series since 2004. Not many would've given the Bruins strong odds to prevail if Rask let in four goals on 16 shots through two periods. Don't forget, a lot of what Marner does, he can do because the best players on the other team are keyed up on Matthews.

"And then the second half of the series I had chances". It will all be gravy because we now know just how bright the Bruins' future is for this playoff series and beyond.
It was a miraculous comeback, a highly entertaining series and the beginning of what potentially could be a really great run for the Toronto Maple Leafs. They knew they would have to endure an onslaught from the Bruins, but still couldn't afford to sit back and try to hang onto the lead. "We're going to enjoy this one tonight, but then go back to the drawing board". The Bruins are 14-12 in Game 7s and Toronto is 12-11. And they lost to a team that aims to win a Stanley Cup this year.
