Leafs Take A 2-1 Series Lead Over The Bruins

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

Back on familiar ice in the playoffs, the Toronto Maple Leafs protected their home-ice advantage with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins.

There was an expectant feeling in the air as Auston Matthews scored his first of the post-season and Frederik Andersen stopped 35 shots Monday to give Toronto a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

This is the third straight spring the Leafs have qualified for the playoffs and they are attempting to capture the franchise’s first series win since 2004.
