Preview:

Only two wins to go in this series. The Bruins have four chances to get two wins, and after Monday's game, things are looking pretty good. Not great, but good.

There are flaws in the Bruins' game plan, to be sure. They got away with collapsing inward in the third period on Monday, allowing the Leafs numerous chances and not getting many of their own. Non-Vezina-nominee Tuukka Rask made 45 saves, only allowing two goals, and luckily the Bruins were able to muster enough offense to counteract the Leafs' flurry of chances.

The key to these games going forward continues to be the production of the top two lines, as always. The Leafs can't get heavy coverage on both the Bergeron and Krejci lines; if they cover one, the other must be able to pick up the slack and get pucks on net. Luckily, we've seen the Bergeron line get stifled and the Krejci line do exactly what they need to do (Milan Lucic has six assists! David Krejci has seven points! Nathan Horton has three goals! All these things were league-leading stats before last night!) in their stead; if that can continue to happen, the Bruins should be okay.
