The move from the Montreal Canadiens to the Maple Leafs has not been an easy one for Plekanec.
Mixing the running and gunning that was not seen in the first two games of this National Hockey League playoff series with lots of close calls in their own end, the Leafs took a 4-2 win Monday night.
Boston Bruins at Toronto Maple Leafs, 7 p.m., NBCSN. They'll make mistakes, we'll make mistakes. Because they've been able to do it all year and they're good at it. So now they get together and I assume they want to make the right call, that's the idea, but to me they got together and clearly they guessed because it hit the glass and we saw that.
However, Frederik Andersen was the difference in this game. Nylander must have been listening, because by the end of the second period he and Matthews were flying like it was the regular season. 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.
"They capitalized, doesn't mean that because you disagree with the call that it's gonna result in a goal", said Cassidy.
His play with his new team hit rock bottom in the series opener when the veteran centre struggled in the Bruins' 5-1 rout.
With the series shifting to Air Canada Centre, a push from the Leafs was expected early and the hosts did have it early on. And the Bruins got goals from their second power-play unit that were decisive in both matches. Largely meaningless to this current group, of course, but the Bruins are 12-2 in their last 14 Game 3 contests dating back to 2010. Overall, this was the best period we have seen the Leafs play in the entire series.
Russia, Syria may have tampered with Douma proof Russian Federation and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma.

"The atmosphere will help, the guys around me doing a tremendous job, that will help", Nash said before the game.
"It happens in your life". Holden had a goal and five points in 18 regular-season games with the Bruins.
The Leafs began to sit back as the period went on until they were able to catch the Bruins off a neutral zone turnover. "We've got to find ways to create a little more. If we can come out here and put forth a good effort and play the way we're capable of, you've got to start on somewhere".
OUT OF THE BOX For the most part, referees Brad Meier and Ian Walsh had their whistles tucked away calling just two penalties until a late-game tussle/stick swinging incident between Marchand and the Leafs' Morgan Rielly.
Andersen did his best to describe the acrobatic robbery post-game. From the corner, Bozak threw the puck into the crease and Rask stopped it with his stick, but that set it up on a tee for James van Riemsdyk.
In the 3rd period, Adam McQuaid would be forced to leave the game after taking a puck to the neck area. That kinda spam-posting gets you banned if you're online, and is considered just plain unlucky if you're wearing knife-shoes.
GAME ON The stellar third period from Leafs goalie Andersen aside, the Bruins won't exactly be living in fear of the Toronto netminder. He scored the go-ahead goal in the second period after being held scoreless over the first two games of the series in Boston.
The targeted sites were largely empty and were all said to be facilities for chemical weapons storage or production. In the case of chlorine, it is permitted to possess it for civilian use, but not to use it as a weapon.
