The Bruins 4th line of grinders took the ice to try and swing some momentum in Boston's direction.
Next to nothing has gone right for the Maple Leafs.
"They capitalized, doesn't mean that because you disagree with the call that it's gonna result in a goal", said Cassidy. Sometimes we forget this, given how he has taken the National Hockey League by storm ever since his historic four-goal debut against the Ottawa Senators. Maybe it was just the fact he didn't feel as important as he should have when he got here.
"Them" would refer loosely to the Leafs youthful skill brigade of Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, William Nylander and Kasperi Kapanen.
The odds were against Toronto but several key players came through, and they were able to come out on Monday night's game with an impressive victory.
The second period opened as a slightly slower version of the first until Adam McQuaid scored on a point shot that squeaked under Freddy Anderson's pad. It was the type of goal that has defined Matthews in his young career with a nose for the net and a quick release in traffic. "Obviously I knew him, playing against him, but he's been one of our best players since I got here". Leafs coach Mike Babcock was able to use the last change to get Matthews on the ice when Zdeno Chara and Charlie McAvoy were on the bench, giving him more space to work with. In the first period, he scored a pair of goals in less than a minute. Let us know in the comment section below.
So much was made of the 20 points the Bruins first line combined for in the first two games of the series - and for good reason. One day you have a great day next morning you wake up and it's an absolutely (crappy) day.
Andersen was able to keep every Bruins shot out of the net in the final period, while the Leafs were the beneficiary of an outrageous no-icing call against Toronto.
Pastrnak had six points (3 goals, 3 assists) in the Bruins game two win.

"They were tight on us and we have to battle through and be better", said Bergeron.
"We need to be a little smarter", center Nicklas Backstrom said. "That being said, we had some pretty good chances that usually find a way". Komarov is also the player Brad Marchand chose to kiss in Game 1.
The Bruins power play was also a difference maker in both wins.
That was a delay of game/puck over the glass penalty late in the first that led to a James van Riemsdyk power-play goal.
"Strength on the puck", said Cassidy. To me, that's how you separate yourself from the group.
The move from the Montreal Canadiens to the Maple Leafs has not been an easy one for Plekanec. Not only did he score, he also went 6-for-9 on faceoffs and tallied five shots on goal.
His play with his new team hit rock bottom in the series opener when the veteran centre struggled in the Bruins' 5-1 rout.
Tonight's game saw a few lineup changes.
The NHL wants officials to call playoffs at the same standard as the regular season, which is happening with penalties actually going up from the first period through the third.
