Especially when Nylander and the rest of the Leafs' top line is compared to the Bruins' big three, Bergeron, Marchand and David Pastrnak. Monday night, they had zero.

Containing the Bergeron line will be the focus of the Leafs and veteran coach Mike Babcock as the scene shifts for Game 3 to the Air Canada Centre tonight. After DeBrusk made it 2-0 on the power play four minutes later, Miller bounced one in off the back of defenseman Nikita Zaitsev to give the Bruins a three-goal lead and chase Andersen.

The Patrice Bergeron Line is rolling, with a combined 20 points through two games and looking better than they have all season.

With the series shifting to Air Canada Centre, a push from the Leafs was expected early and the hosts did have it early on.

A counter-demonstration titled British Indians Welcome Prime Minister Modi is also planned at the same time at Parliament Square. Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to attack PM Modi, he tweeted, 'Dear Prime Minister, Thank you for breaking your long silence.

The Leafs didn't fare much better with backup goalie Curtis McElhinney, though. The Bruins then tied the game 2-2 in the second period when Zdeno Chara essentially banked an angle shot off Andersen's goalie mask. But there's no way to dance around what happened this past Saturday; the Bruins weathered an early Toronto storm, lit Frederik Andersen up for four goals, and simply hung back for the final 40 minutes of a 7-3 victory. Both the mild-mannered Nash and David Backes argued vehemently that the puck caught the top of the glass before going out of play. James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak and Connor Brown remained together on the only line that has remained a constant for the Leafs this postseason.

The Maple Leafs may be down but they don't feel as if they're out of it just yet and they are confident that they'll get back in the series in front of the home crowd.

The outdoor viewing party for tonight's playoff game against the Boston Bruins was suddenly cancelled after the extreme weather from the weekend trickled into today and didn't let up. Tim Schaller and Sean Kuraly did a good job of winning the puck in the right corner with Schaller feeding Adam McQuaid at the right point. "So I think he's taken a tremendous step this year by the way that he plays away from the puck".

Penalties_Ril.Nash, BOS, (delay of game), 16:58. A late third-period goal by Leafs forward Patrick Marleau, his second of game, sealed Boston's fate. Matthews led all forwards with five shots on goal ...

Donato skated just 9:24 in Game 2, registering no points with three shots on net.
