ECQF Game # 6 Review: Boston Bruins 4 vs.. Toronto Maple Leafs 2



We are shipping to Boston for another Game 7, after special teams have given the Toronto Maple Leafs a golden opportunity to close the Bruins on home ice.

Her play in ten:

1. It was a game after Leafs's first penalty in the 10th minute. The crowd grunted, the Leafs came out energetically, they had the ice tipping and Boston did not have much plans. It all looked very good for the Leafs – while wasting a power play, the outbreaks were short and sharp, they played fast and they looked dangerous in most of their 5: 5 shifts. Morgan Rielly then scored the all-important first goal (the Leafs won the other two games in which they scored the first goal in this series and were generally well in the lead). It felt like a sequel to Game 5.

Even though a penalty should really not make a match if your penalty shootout works competently, the penalty of Tyler Ennis was a bad thing that you almost had to put up with 200 yards away from his own net. Stretching a free arm is one of the simplest things the officials can call. Essentially, the Leafs did not completely recover in the middle of the middle of the game after Boston gained momentum in the first power play.

. 2 Zach Hyman has won the vast majority of the Leafs shorthanded draw and won only 23.8% of them (5 for 21

) in the playoffs. If you start so often without puck, it is absolutely against one of the best power games in the league asked. Babcock is a big competitor, yet they ignore this key detail in an area where Off-Offs (PKs) play a big role. This is really a shot in the foot with the failure to adapt.

John Tavares was generally solid in the series and was able to hold out against Patrice Bergeron's hard adjustment to start Tavares for a draw and depose him if they win and are clear. It was bizarre to see the Leafs return to Hyman in the second half of the second-half tie after the Leafs lost on the first 4 goals, including the one leading to the Brad Marchand goal 50-50 where The Leafs winger in Mitch Marner did not take care of his husband in March.

. 3 The other element is that the Leafs are very passive at the moment – they play conservatively and let the Bruins work the puck at will. It certainly looks like a unit that does not trust what Boston did to them in this series (7 for 16). At the Torey Krug goal, Pastrnak had enough room for half to take a shot and they were tightly packed as the rebound discarded them and Krug picked him up at the back post. There is a lot to do here – too many "that was too easy" for Bruins powerplay goals and the Leafs D and Forwards are sometimes not on the same page – but for me it starts to win someone in place who actually has some Draw so that he can push him down a couple of meters a few times, enter the neutral zone, maybe refuse a few entries and see if he can get some momentum / confidence back in his kill this way.

4 . Morgan Rielly completed the bus for the Leafs in this game completely – the +31 Corsi compared to his teammates is an amazing statistic about how much he has moved the drink in this game. He scored, fired six shots into the net, was aggressive and intelligent, jumped into the game, hauling himself in for point and point, playing the game with his legs throughout the game, physically playing, negating a potential outlier in diving defensive efforts on Jake DeBrusk and generally led the team only throughout the game, while playing over 25 minutes in the Ice Age. In the end, he might have been gassed a bit – he threw a treacherous pizza right in front of his own net, which David Pastrnak should have buried in the remaining minute, and he was beaten on the empty net of Brad Marchand. It was hard to criticize him there after he threw the team on the back for much of the night. Until that time, it was a nominated for the Norris Trophy performance.

5. The other two, who were among the best players in the Leafs, were Frederik Andersen – the only reason the Leafs were in range and able to play too late, as well Auston Matthews . John Tavares and Mitch Marner were the stars of the series at the beginning of the series. However, you must find a way to aggressively influence the game in Game 7 again. It's one thing to say 5v5 Saw-off is the best you can expect against the Bergeron line, but Bruce Cassidy split his weapons into two units, with Pastrnak having to move one line down, and that's just a shot on goal and a -4 by Marner in his last three games.

. 6 The leafs 'powerplay issues need their own article as they are below average for most of the year and now for the playoffs, compared to the units' abilities. But it seems to be remarkable that Auston Matthews has scored three goals from the right side of the team in this series. Morgan Rielly made this interesting comment after the game:

"They're doing the two guys on the wing, Mats & Mitchy, well, which I probably would. So they leave the shot open, so it's important that I shoot through and we pop on rebounds … "

It's clear the book is about closing the half-walls of the Leafs, jamming in the middle and Giving her up – Great stuff, because Rielly's shot – as much as he did this year with his prolific tips and rebounds – does not bother anyone but his own threat. It changes the dynamics considerably when they switch to Matthews on his one-time page. If Rielly takes his place and forces the Bruins to close a bit before slipping him over for a quick one-timer option with Matthews, this opens up to your best shooter versus Matthews, who handles the puck with no time or effort must have his strong side. It has really become outdated and predictable.

. 7 What a frustrating sequence before Brad Marchand's 4-2 goal. The goalkeeper moved without conquering the puck and setting the offensive zone, however, was strange, and the Leafs outside Andreas Johnsson, who was overpowered in a battle-down low after the rebound, lacked complete execution and organization from the coaching staff and the local players.

. 8 Graduation of the numbers with the ice age in the last five minutes.

Nazem Kadri is the next best striker on this team outside of the big four, and he plays a small role here, but at this point I would deny every attacker, except Connor Brown and Frederik Gauthier are better options than Patrick Marleau if he pushes for a goal in the final minutes. It's really hard to justify the eighth or ninth striker, who is offensively cold and sees such minutes in such situations.

. 9 This second period from Boston was the kind of hockey that I'm convinced Bruins coaches will serve as a role model for what they've tried to achieve (mostly unsuccessfully) in this series with 5v5. This was really the first time that this series actually slowed the game down a short period in the second phase of Game 1 and Split Game 2, the ice tipped heavily and with a lot of cycle the Leafs reached time for a solid 10-15 minutes or so. The leaves were really sloppy – suddenly unable to make tape-to-tape passes or even handle a puck at times (Tavares, Marner, Nylander really fought for it). The sheets seem to be insecure as soon as a few things have broken against them, but Boston played a fantastic hockey to their credit in the middle of the middle section of the game and took advantage of their chances (all these series have done very well, especially on the power play ), and prevented the removal like the experienced and talented team that they are.

10th Desperate: 107-point veterans do not go quietly into the night. This was a lesson for the Leafs and, technically speaking, this group never had their first two trips to the playoffs – a good team – because they had left behind in each series. However, Game 7 in Boston is something they have already experienced, and both the coaching team and players need to step up if they want to finally exorcise the demons in the House of Secrets. The positive attitude is that both teams responded with losses each time, and the home ice advantage has not been a significant factor in the series so far. But as we all know, Game 7 is often its own animal.
