Keys to Taking the Series in Game 6

Boston vs. Toronto Prediction, Preview, and Odds - 4-21-2019

But he figures his young team will discover the old axiom that the last win is the hardest.

It was Marchand's power play goal shortly after Rielly's strike that sparked the Bruins, and turned the game in their favor for good, as the Bruins followed up with goals by Torey Krug on the power play and Jake DeBrusk, his first of the series.

The battle-tested visitors had counterpunched.

But sent to the power play when Tyler Ennis held Sean Kuraly a bit too much for the stripes' liking, a Brad Marchand shot took a fortunate bounce off Ron Hainsey's knee and trickled through Andersen to knot things up at 1-1.

"I thought we were really ready, we were jumping big time", Babcock said. "The bottom line is we've got a one-game series against these guys and we like each other, we like our group, we like hanging around together, we want to be together".

We started really well, we played really well and then, boom.

Frederik Andersen had 28 saves for Toronto. "That's what our focus is on". If they win, they'll advance to the second round for the first time since 2004 and face the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Toronto, which took a 3-2 lead in the series thanks to a patient, stifling defensive performance Friday at TD Garden, is Canada's last hope of ending the country's 26-year Stanley Cup drought. The Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets were eliminated in their first-round series.

"It's all small details", Matthews said of what's been the difference in a series where the road club has a 4-2 record.

"It's a team effort really", explained Clark. "We talked about it and prepared for it, but it didn't happen". It was the penalty kill, which struggled before Game 6 on Sunday afternoon and became a principal reason the Leafs now have a Game 7 on their schedule for Tuesday.

Morgan Rielly and Auston Matthews replied for Toronto in Game 6 of a series where neither team has managed back-to-back victories and the visitors have won four of the six contests. Despite the tough task facing them, David Pastrnak and the Bruins are confident that they will have a chance to improve and force a Game 7.

"We had a good attitude going into the third and started executing a little better", Tavares added. We got within one.

Five Bruins saw power-play ice - and each logged exactly two minutes and 24 seconds.

Puck drop is set for 3 p.m. on Sunday. "And that's playoff time, that's part of what makes it so exciting". He did not think the Maple Leafs came out flat, he said.

Toronto opened the scoring at 9:42 of the opening period on Rielly's first of the playoffs.

It has come down to that time and again, to the simplicity of the game that the Bruins need to play, to the power play - now 7-for-16 in the series - and to the aggressive, on-the-line style that is generally their hallmark.

The Bruins were 2 for 2 on power plays in Game 4, helping propel them to the win.

Andersen did well to keep it a one-goal deficit late in the first by making two hockey-card caliber stops on both Patrice Bergeron and Grzelcyk. "It doesn't mean we can't take advantage of (the crowd support) in our own building, but we have to take care of the puck and make smart decisions".

With the goalie pulled for an extra skater, David Krejci got the Bruins on the board with 43.7 seconds left, but Boston couldn't tie it up.
