Hell, the Maple Leafs may not even get a lead in this series. Gretzky did that for the first time not long after he turned 22 years old.
The Leafs came out with a few good shifts in the opening five minutes. "And they're a good team, they're going to have a push".
Through two games, the Bruins top line has accounted for 20 points, 13 of which came Saturday night. "We were outplayed for two games".
Tory: I was at the Jays Care, they have that annual fundraiser to raise money for their foundation and they do it on the field at the Rogers Centre.
"I think the game and the league and as players, that is something we don't want in our game". You know the one about one of these things not being like the others?
Tory: They had set up these huge screens because they knew everybody would be focused on the hockey. They turned it up.
Micelli: I had just gotten a GoPro and was using it for shooting, mostly kiteboarding and wakeboarding content. One player that could have helped, Nazem Kadri, was handed a three-game suspension for his hit on Tommy Wingels in Game 1.
Micelli: The Leafs went up 4-1 in the third. We spent all year preparing for this opportunity and don't feel we've been as good as we're capable of being.
"Look, we were outplayed for two games, certainly", Maple Leafs defenseman Ron Hainsey said. We've got to go home, get out of here. "Now we got to go on the road and obviously it's going to be a lot tougher in their home building, trying to grind some wins out of there".
At least the Leafs now get to return to the ACC, something with coach Mike Babcock talked about, when assessing the disaster which occurred on Saturday night. "I'll tell you [Monday] during warmup". The Bruins won 7-3 to take a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoff series. "I just think his skillset and his hockey IQ leads to him being successful in that area". The Bruins are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Toronto, 3-7 in the last 10 meetings and the home team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. They peppered the net with six shot attempts to just one for the Bruins before David Pastrnak's goal opened the scoring.
Hadfield: While I was coming down in flames, the Leafs were going down in flames too, unfortunately. Boston was able to pull ahead and put Toronto away by the time the 3rd period was underway. "Now we've got to show it". "And if I had, I'd try to block it out of my mind, probably".
Hadfield: We bounced to a stop near the town of Kata Ganda in Kazakhstan, one of the main cities in Kazakhstan. "Dig in and play", Babcock said.
Gallant: They choked, they blew it.
"Good news is, story's not totally written yet".
JOHAN FRAZEN, DETROIT RED WINGS - MAY 6, 2010 Somewhere out there there's a Sharks fan who still recoils at the name Johan Franzen, who has nightmares about the man they call 'The Mule.' That isn't without reason. Then to implode the way they did was crushing. Once again, however, the Devils put the pressure on and got two goals back, but Andrei Vasilevskiy was superb, making 41 saves total to preserve a 5-3 win and a 2-0 series lead for Tampa Bay.
David Fergus, bartender at the Wheat Sheaf Tavern: Everyone was pretty distraught. "At the end of the day, our guys do believe - from one to 12, I do believe our guys believe they can score". "They've been getting a little too much time maybe and they're too skilled to let them do that".
Masters: Every question seemed to be some variation of, how the heck did this happen?
"Speed, tenacious on the forecheck, heavy body, goes to the front of the net", Marleau said of his potential new winger.
