Maple Leafs forward Leo Komarov out for Game 3 against Bruins

The Leafs went down 0-2 as the series shifted to Toronto for Game 3 on Monday night, and Andersen gave a much better performance to help the Leafs earn a 4-2 win at the Air Canada Centre. The only goal that cannot be blamed on the defense is Auston Matthews snipe in the 2nd period. "You've got to get your mind right and you've got to play right".

Komarov is the second Toronto forward sitting out, with Nazem Kadri serving the second of a three-game suspension for his illegal hit on Tommy Wingels in Game 1.

The Maple Leafs will look to even the series at home in Game 4 on Thursday night.

The Patrice Bergeron Line is rolling, with a combined 20 points through two games and looking better than they have all season.

Marleau, 38 (and 213 days), also became the oldest Leafs playoff goal scorer in team history.

While Andersen allowed a bad goal to Adam McQuaid in the second period, he was terrific after that.

Matthews was nearly invisible in the first couple games in Boston, but he made his presence felt in Game 3.

The Colorado Avalanche return home after dropping the first two games of their series with the Presidents' Trophy-winning Nashville Predators on the road. It would put a ton of pressure on Matt Grzelcyk and Nick Holden.

"Obviously their power-play unit is very good, a lot of fire power, make good plays, wins faceoffs and they got guys who can score", said Leafs centre Tyler Bozak.

The Boston power play - which went 5 for 10 in the first two games - got its first opportunity early in the third, but Pastrnak hit the post off a feed from Rick Nash.

However, replays clearly showed that Nash's clear attempt rode up the glass before going out of play, meaning it shouldn't have been a penalty. But after a powwow with all four officials, referee Brad Meier waved Nash into the box. The defenseman dished it back down low to Bozak on the left side. James van Riemsdyk, another of the absent ones, scored one of his patented redirects in front of the net at 17:07. That also matches the National Hockey League record for the most points by a player through the first two games of a postseason, tying Esposito's mark from 1969.

Next to nothing has gone right for the Maple Leafs.

Toronto's defense has been sliced and diced, and its penalty kill has been embarrassed by the ferocity and efficiency of the Boston attack.

Rielly bounced a stretch pass off the left boards that Kevan Miller was in good position to defend, but he could not stop it with his skates and Mitch Marner grabbed it at the blue line.

It all started with head coach Mike Babcock giving his critics the bird in the morning.

Neither of those were pretty, to be sure, but Andersen more than redeemed himself with several five-bell saves and at crucial times, starting with a massive glove save on David Krejci earlier in the middle frame.

GAME ON The stellar third period from Leafs goalie Andersen aside, the Bruins won't exactly be living in fear of the Toronto netminder.
