National Hockey League roundup: Marner nets two to lead Leafs past Bruins

Fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs breathed a collective sigh of relief following the club's impressive 4-1 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series on Thursday night.

The hustle that forced the Bruins to make mistakes, though: That's something they are planning to do over and over again.

The Leafs tied the game on Marner's first goal late in the first period.

Tavares scored into an empty net with 1:19 remaining in the third period for the 4-1 final. "You go through different periods where it goes better for you (and) sometimes it doesn't go as well".

Stratolaunch, World's Largest Plane, Flies for the First Time
Powered by six Boeing 747 engines, the plane is meant to climb twice as high, and with a space rocket strapped underneath. The world's largest aircraft, developed by aerospace venture Stratolaunch, completed its first flight test on Saturday.

The 21-year-old got the Leafs back to even after the Bruins pulled ahead in the first period before connecting on his penalty shot with a ridiculous move on Tuukka Rask. Then the Leafs hit the ice in Boston to play Game 2 of their series on a day that also features Blue Jays and Toronto FC games - the baseball team is home to 2018 Cy Young victor Blake Snell and the Tampa Bay Rays, while the soccer squad is in Seattle for a rematch of the 2016 and '17 MLS Cups. Marner was a damned magician, and even beyond his first goal - just Mitch being Mitch, as Tavares put it - and his penalty-shot evisceration of Tuukka Rask, Boston lost the battle of the big lines.

The Leafs, meanwhile, won their first Game 1 since 2003 and will be looking to go up 2-0 for the first time since 2002. What was Mike Babcock saying the other day about line matching, now that Tavares is here, and Kadri is a third-liner, and Tomas Plekanec doesn't have to spend three games with Kadri suspended as a second-line centre?

It was nice to see DeBrusk bask after crashing hard into the boards, but it's clear he's still feeling whatever it was that sent him to the locker room.

DeBrusk crashed hard into the boards and appeared to go to the locker room for attention, but returned to the game.

Favreau also says the show will not only satisfy longtime fans but introduce a new generation to the galaxy far, far away.

"I'll state the obvious: we would have liked the breakaways, the penalty shots saved", said Cassidy. His teammates rewarded him with more than enough offense. The Maple Leafs are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Boston and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. Teams have changed, players have changed but the uniform crest hasn't, so we know what they're capable of.

With the Toronto Maple Leafs up 1-0 in the series, all eyes shift to how the Boston Bruins respond in Game 2, as well as whether or not the Maple Leafs continue their success.

"I don't think there is any lack of respect for the Leafs". The goal came after Tavares won the faceoff in the Boston zone, Jake Muzzin took a point shot that Marner deflected into the left post.

William Nylander had a disappointing regular season by his standards, scoring just seven goals after his contract dispute, and it was his high sticking penalty that led to the Bruins' power play goal. The last attempt was by Philadelphia's Ville Leino in 2010. Muzzin, a trade deadline acquisition who missed the final regular-season game with an illness, assisted on Marner's first goal. The Toronto Maple Leafs have allowed three or more goals in 10 of their last 14 games.
