It felt like there were long stretches where the Bruins struggled to clear their own zone or move the puck through the neutral zone last night, but once they were in Toronto's end of the ice they were able to create good chances.It was a weird game looking back on for me. I think the B's had a lot more high-end scoring opps that didn't pan out (Pasta off post, Pasta stoned by paddle, Pasta off glove, Marshy off glove and crossbar, Krecji whiff) but overall, I felt like Toronto carried the play for huge chunks of time.
I was doing the same thing. I couldn't post during game 1 so I stayed out of game threads until now.The only plus side to this loss is I can now post in the game threads again. If they kept winning, I was going to keep banning myself from posting. So, win for me, loss for you.
As for the game, they out played Toronto but had to fight off bad refs, and really bad luck. Win Game 4 and they have control of the series.
The worst part about the loss is that it guarantees we have to see that fuckstick Kadri again this year.
I thought Riley Nash was slow to start but got his legs under him and looked good the second half of the game. Every line seemed to get pined in their own zone multiple times, though. Most of them didn't lead to great scoring chances (the Bruins actually had most of those, I thought), I can't imagine it felt good on the legs. Might have contributed to the inability to put shots away late.
