Matt Grzelcyk Looking Good For Game 4

Leafs 'under the gun,' especially Matthews and Kadri

Boston Bruins' Rask steals game 4, can close out Leafs on Saturday

Patrice Bergeron took the ice in Brighton on Friday, skating on his own and ran some drills after sitting out of the Bruins' 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 4 on Thursday night.

Bergeron's absence in Game 4 was a lifeline the Leafs failed to grab in a crushing 3-1 loss that saw Toronto carry the play for long stretches, only to be done in by a lack of finish, too many pedestrian performances, and some stunning defensive miscues that led to two goals against on odd-man rushes.

The Toronto Maples Leafs will try to even their opening round series with the Boston Bruins in Game 4 Thursday night. The Maple Leafs have gone 20-23 on the road for the year and they have averaged 3.24 gpg and have allowed 2.87 gpg in those games.

Bergeron was scratched shortly prior to Game 4 due to the injury. Tommy Wingels took his place on the Bruins' roster, while Riley Nash slid into his spot as the top-line center. They'll make mistakes, we'll make mistakes. If Bergeron, who skated for roughly 40 minutes on Friday morning, can play, it could blunt the impact of the Leafs getting standout two-way center Nazem Kadri back from a three-game National Hockey League suspension. Boston's top line had been on the ice for more than a minute before an icing call prevented them from changing, leading to the fateful faceoff late in the second period of a 1-1 game.

The Presidents' Trophy-winning Bruins lost Games 6 and 7 of the 2014 Eastern Conference Second Round to the Montreal Canadiens, a disappointing end after a triumphant regular season.

If the Maple Leafs are unable to extend the series past Game 5 in Boston, the team will have nobody to blame but themselves for their disappointing play.

"It's unfortunate for him he missed three games", coach Mike Babcock said. To me, if you're these players and you've seen that, you want to see it again.

But, Toronto would tie the game shortly after Marleau's bid.

The Bruins doubled the lead in the third period with this nifty connection from David Krejci to Jake DeBrusk.

"That being said, we have done some pre-scouts, watched some film and hopefully that will come a little smoother in the next game". Babcock wasn't concerned that Plekanec only produced two assists in 17 regular-season games after the deal and said he was thrilled to have him for the playoffs because: "You can trust him". The Leafs continued to outplay the Bruins, spending most of the period in the Bruins zone before Brad Marchand scored to put the Bruins up 2-1 through two.

"I think the urgency is there for us tomorrow", Cassidy said.

Snatching up the win in game-four was Tuukka Rask, who stopped 31 of the 32 shots that he faced in the game to improve to 3-1 with a 2.28 GAA and a.928 save percentage in the series and 33-24 with a 2.13 GAA and a.928 save percentage in the playoffs in his career. If he scored, it would have bee the goal of the playoffs.

This year has been a bit tough for the Washington Capitals by losing their first two games in the playoffs against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

He's 3-1 in the series with a 2.27 goals-against average and a.926 save percentage.
