Bruins vs. Maple Leafs Game 2: Full highlights, final score and more

The Leafs actually had a better start than Thursday when they were almost run out of the rink in the game's first 10 minutes, but the Bruins grabbed the lead at 5:26 when Pastrnak picked up the puck in front of Andersen and made a slick move to score his second goal of the series. It's also an extremely effective way to score goals.

Babcock admitted the domination of the Bruins in this series could affect the confidence of his young Maple Leafs moving forward.

Nash buried a rebound on McElhinney just 11 seconds later at the 15-minute mark to make it 4-0 - the 11th power-play goal Toronto has given up in its last seven games. Since Jan. 22, Toronto has lost only two games at Air Canada Centre, and set a franchise record for longest home winning streak (13 games) in the process. Two of which were highlight reel material. With Nazem Kadri's suspension, Hyman was moved down the Leafs lineup in an attempt to create more balance. They're followed by Torey Krug, who is tied with Patrice Bergeron with five points. Really hard to play against, and they play a 200-foot game.

"They put up four goals; it's tough to climb back".

One player on that top line, in particular, brought something special to the table.

"Hell of night", Marchand said of Pastrnak's performance.

Coupled with a 5-1 victory in Game 1, Pastrnak (four goals, five assists), Marchand (one goal, five assists) and Bergeron (five assists) have combined for 20 points, leaving the Maple Leafs in search of a solution.

"We need to regroup, take a deep breath and win two at home here taking one game at a time", he said after Game 2.

Pastrnak (21 years, 324 days) is the youngest player in National Hockey League history to score six points in a playoff game, eclipsing the mark set by Wayne Gretzky (22 years, 81 days) in Game 3 of the 1983 division final. I thought we got off to a pretty good start, and the puck still went in the net.

"I feel good", he said. Give them credit, they're playing real well, that line, they've been good on the power play, good at 5-on-5, everything they throw at the net's going in.

"Any way you look at it, their one line is having too much fun, so we have to look after that", said Babcock. After a plucky two periods in Game 1, Colorado wasn't able to keep pace with the Nashville Predators in the final frame. To say that he hasn't learned anything from the dynamic Bergeron-Marchand duo is an understatement. "I know we're capable of playing better and myself included so we can look forward to that and turn the page for tomorrow". We've got last change [at home]. Take the lessons, what they have for you. Useful as far as it goes in the regular season, not particularly helpful against Boston. Having a good 20 minutes would've helped at least establish momentum. But then Pastrnak opened the floodgates at 5:26 of the first.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Killorn scored twice during a four-goal second period, helping Tampa Bay beat New Jersey for a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference series. McElhinney stopped 19 of the 23 shots he faced.

A lot of people have an opinion on Tuukka Rask.

Notes: The Bruins donated $200,000 to the Humboldt Broncos relief efforts, the money from a luxury suite auction and the team's share of the 50/50 raffle at Game 1 of the series. The Bruins are now two games away from advancing to the next round of the playoffs, and they have been playing some fantastic hockey. "It was a game where - sometimes you're in the regular season, those games happen and teams want to build good habits so they're not going to - they're going to tighten up and accept that they might lose", head coach Bruce Cassidy said about Rask's timely saves.
