Matthews helps Maple Leafs down Bruins

Share

Toronto Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews (34) celebrates his goal with teammate Nikita Zaitsev (22) during the third period in Game 5 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series against the Boston Bruins in Boston, Friday, April 19, 2019.

The game will be televised on NBC in the U.S. In Canada, the game will be televised on Sportsnet, CBC and TVA Sports.

His flight to meet the team in Boston was delayed and he barely got any sleep that night during his travels. The change was also made because the Leafs' fourth line played well in Games 3 and 4 against the Bruins' unit. I don't think we even should've been in the playoffs two or three years ago, but we got there. "It took a whole 60 (minutes) to get it done, but we got it done". "We will get prepared to really push". The Bruins challenged Matthews' goal, arguing that Rask was interfered with, but the goal was upheld after a review.

That gave them the cushion they needed to withstand a goal with 43.4 seconds left in the third period by Bruins centre David Krejci with the goaltender pulled for an extra skater.

"We have to rely on each other and put ourselves in a bubble and do the job", centre Patrice Bergeron said.

The Leafs' Zach Hyman clearly made contact with Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, seemingly impeding his ability to move freely across the crease for a chance to stop Matthews' one-timer.

DOJ: Mueller Report Likely to Be Released Thursday
The scores of outstanding questions about the investigation have not stopped the president and his allies from declaring victory. A redacted version of the long-anticipated report is expected to be released Thursday, the Justice Department confirmed Monday.

One person who clearly didn't get what he wanted was Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy. I just hope they don't predict whether they thought the goalie could make the save, get across in time to determine whether it's interference. As far as the scoring chances went with Boston up a man, the Leafs had the best during the third penalty, but Kasperi Kapanen shot high on a breakaway. I didn't watch it. "The call didn't go our way and it's 1-0 with eight minutes to go". Just happy they counted it.

"I didn't think that we had energy in the bottom of our lineup".

Boston appeared to go ahead with 7:21 left in the period, but Krejci's shot that looked to have gone in at first glance hit the post and stayed out, much to the chagrin of the mostly black-and-yellow clad 17,565 at TD Garden. The Leafs went several minutes without a shot on net in the second, but a weak Hyman shot got the Leafs going, as both Tyler Ennis and Kapanen had good chances ...

Krejci thought he had a goal with 7:20 left in the second with a slap shot that slipped by Andersen's shoulder. A Travis Dermott block on a streaking Sean Kuraly early in the third period was crucial ...

Kapanen, who came in with zero points in the series, helped set up his team's first, and then scored its second when he finished off a 3-on-2 just 2:12 later.

The Maple Leafs, who have alternated wins and losses in the first five games, now have a chance to close out the series when it shifts back to Toronto for Game 6 on Sunday.
