RIch Peverley at netfront - Claus Andersen

The Boston Bruins spoil the return of playoff hockey to the Air Canada Centre by dispatching the Maple Leafs 5-2. The HuLK line, Third Line, and Merlot Line were strong, and Adam McQuaid scored his first ever playoff goal.

About last night...

  • Nathan Horton's goal was the turning point, but it was a balanced attack that keyed the Bruins' win. [BostonHerald]
  • Yo, Merlot! How about Shawn Thornton, Daniel Paille, and Gregory Campbell? And the third line! Rich Peverley went 10-of-11 on faceoffs and scored a goal after a steal and feed by Jaromir Jagr. [BostonHerald]
  • Claude Julien had praise for Jaromir Jagr, whose third line with Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley looked a great deal more cohesive. [NESN]
  • Chemistry takes time, and the third line appears to be hitting stride. [CausewayCrowd]
  • Tuukka Rask had the game of his career, making 46 saves. [NESN]
  • Ladies and gentlemen, your Player of the Game- Milan Lucic. [BruinsDaily]
  • And Lucic sported the team Ranger jacket as a result. [Bruins.NHL]
  • And this NOTfancystat sums up Lucic's odd season. Not that we're complaining. [@DJ_Bean]
  • In a nutshell, what went right and what went wrong for the Bruins in Game 3. [WEEI]
  • Remember that resilience the Bruins have been so famous for? So did they. [WEEI]
  • And remember the Full 60? The Bruins remembered that, too. [BruinsDaily]
  • David Krejci is currently the leading scorer in the playoffs. [@BauerHockey]
  • Toronto was elated to see playoff hockey again, and the atmosphere was electric. They had everything but the win. [YahooSports]
  • The Leafs have a dismal playoff record at home vs. the Bruins. Just sayin'. [@Buccigross]
  • Fan FAIL. A thoughtless Toronto fan's ill-conceived sign was not well received by either side. [CBC]
