Preview: Bruins at Maple Leafs
Gracenote
Apr 18, 2018

Almost left for dead after the first two games of their Eastern Conference first-round series, the Toronto Maple Leafs have a chance to level the best-of-seven set when they host the Boston Bruins in Game 4 on Thursday night. The Maple Leafs absorbed a pair of beatings at Boston's TD Garden by a combined 12-4 score, but reversed the momentum with a 4-2 home win on Monday night.

With only four teams in history having come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series, Toronto coach Mike Babcock was keenly aware of the importance of winning Game 3 and understands his team needs a similar performance Thursday. “If we didn’t have success, I thought we were probably going to be done,” Babcock said. “(Now), you win one, you’re in a best-of-three. We’re set up real good that way. ... You still want to be in a better situation and be in the driver’s seat. So it’s important for us to even it up.” The Bruins did not exactly roll over Monday at Air Canada Centre, pouring 42 shots on goal, and acknowledged they didn't expect to steamroll the Maple Leafs at will the entire series. "You want to limit their chances, their opportunities as much as you can," Boston defenseman Charlie McAvoy said. "We've been able to do that. But they were going to break through at some point. Fine, we get that game out of the way and get refocused and get ready for Game 4."

TV: 7 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network, NESN (Boston), CBC, TVAS (Toronto)

ABOUT THE BRUINS: Boston's top line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak was all the rage in the opening two games, combining for a collective 20 points, but the unit was blanked in Game 3. “Clearly, it’s going to give them some motivation and it should when you keep them off the scoresheet," Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. "At the end of the day, I don’t think it will bother them one bit, and in fact, they might bear down a little bit more." Pastrnak, who had six points in Game 2, has six goals and seven assists in seven meetings versus Toronto this season.

ABOUT THE MAPLE LEAFS: While Boston's top line dominated the first two games, Toronto's No. 1 unit was floundering by being held off the scoresheet, but star forward Auston Matthews provided the biggest moment for the Maple Leafs by netting the tiebreaking goal in Game 3. "Mats scoring that goal was a relief for him, but also a relief for our bench, the whole Toronto fan base," forward Mitch Marner said. "That goal was massive for our team." Frederik Andersen allowed eight goals in four periods in the first two contests, but his 40 saves Monday were his highest total since Feb. 20.

OVERTIME

1. Marner had two assists Monday to give him 13 points in seven games versus Boston this season.

2. Bruins rookie D Matt Grzelcyk is expected back in the lineup after sitting out Game

3. Maple Leafs F Patrick Marleau scored twice in Game 3 to boost his playoff total to 70 goals, tying Steve Yzerman for 16th on the all-time list.

PREDICTION: Bruins 4, Maple Leafs 3

Preview: Capitals at Blue Jackets
Gracenote
Apr 18, 2018

Fresh off their second straight overtime loss, Alex Ovechkin generated both headlines and raised eyebrows after declaring that the Washington Capitals would return to the District of Columbia tied with the Columbus Blue Jackets at two victories apiece in their Eastern Conference first-round series. Halfway there after a double-overtime win, the visiting Capitals look to make Ovechkin's words ring true in Game 4 on Thursday.

Ovechkin recorded his second straight two-point performance when he notched a pair of assists in his 100th career playoff game before Lars Eller ended Tuesday's marathon after the puck caromed off him and into the net for a 3-2 win. "It was a real ugly OT-winner goal. I had a feeling it was going be one of those. It doesn't make the win less sweet," the 28-year-old Eller told the Washington Post. Or less sour for the Blue Jackets, who saw Artemi Panarin's eighth straight multi-point performance go by boards in the setback. The former Calder Trophy recipient scored and set up a goal in Game 3 to give him seven points (two goals, five assists) in the series and 20 (four goals, 16 assists) in the eight-game stretch.

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, USA, Sportsnet, TVAS2, NBCS Washington, FS Ohio (Columbus)

ABOUT THE CAPITALS: Braden Holtby earned his keep on Tuesday with 33 saves, prompting coach Barry Trotz to declare the 2016 Vezina Trophy winner the starter the following day. "I don't think there's any doubt about that," Trotz said of Holtby, who answered a 1-5-2 mark with a gaudy 4.82 goals-against average and .854 save percentage from Feb. 11-March 5 with a solid 5-1-0 record in his final six regular-season starts. Holtby also rebounded after Panarin's 2-on-1 goal early in the third period in Game 3 to stop the final 17 shots he faced.

ABOUT THE BLUE JACKETS: Cam Atkinson joined defenseman Seth Jones with an assist on Tuesday to extend their respective point streaks, with the former riding a 12-game stretch (10 goals, seven assists). Jones logged a team-high 35:04 and Panarin had over 31 1/2 minutes, prompting Columbus coach John Tortorella to give his team the day off from practice on Wednesday with both teams working a staggering 47:24 of overtime in the series. "During playoffs, to me, it's not a physical fatigue; it's a mental fatigue - and that's what breaks you down physically," Tortorella said on Wednesday. "But if we're fatigued three games in, (expletive), we're just starting. It's a long game last night, and we've had a couple overtime games, but that's all part of this."

OVERTIME

1. Washington C Nicklas Backstrom, who has five assists in the series and is riding a six-game point streak (two goals, nine assists) will skate in his 100th career NHL playoff game on Thursday.

2. Two-time Vezina Trophy winner G Sergei Bobrovsky owns a .925 save percentage after facing 133 shots in three contests of the series.

3. This series is the 22nd in NHL history that has featured at least three consecutive overtime games.

PREDICTION: Capitals 3, Blue Jackets 2
