"I felt great. I did some good work in the last few days to get ready for this and get ready to compete". "I was tracking it to the corner and it ended up in the back of the net", said Rask.
"It's not new", Tory said of the city's two playoff teams.
"Well I saw him in stride and I just tried to get my head up", Kadri said. I feel like I had a pretty solid year and stayed consistent throughout that. "So we've just got to play a little faster".
This isn't to say the Maple Leafs didn't rely heavily on their goaltender to secure the result. He also was studying the Maple Leafs while he was watching from the ninth floor. They already accomplished what they were looking for by stealing game one. "All these teams are so close and even".
"When you're a really good player, you're going to draw a ton of checking", Babcock said. Frederik Andersen, who worked hard to re-centre himself down the stretch after a rocky March, was so cool that he messed with Brad Marchand on a third-period forecheck and flung the pass past Bergeron.
The coach also stressed that a player like Matthews, who was held to just two points last spring against the Bruins and rightly or wrongly took a lot of criticism in the process, needs to be patient in these big moments.
Saturday marks the first time the four Toronto teams have all played on the same day since April 25 of 2018.
"I think that was my goal".
Boston almost tied it moments later, but Andersen stopped Charlie Coyle before the Bruins centre rang a shot off the post.

The 75-year-old Haftar's push for Tripoli took many by surprise and has brought calls from round the world for a ceasefire. Moreover, militias, mostly Islamist, have held sway over large regions, particularly in the west and south of the country.
The Bruins fourth line was a disaster in the opening 20 and clearly need to be much better in the second. The mission is to try to go to Canada with a 2-0 lead. Bruins are 1-1 on the power play tonight.
The highlight of the game came when the Leafs' leading scorer Mitch Marner scored his second goal of the game on a penalty shot in the second period. He pushed the puck into the open net to make it 2-1.
Another period that saw the Maple Leafs as the better team. "They don't stress too much". They came in throwing hits and chasing pucks and playing like they were supposed to be there. Toronto's trio has the edge in shot attempts 11-10, shots on goal 7-5 and goals 1-0 five-on-five. Shots in favor of the Bruins 33-25. Leafs to the power play.
Even in the hockey-speak of upper- and lower-body injuries, playoff time brings an extra cloud of secrecy. Puck drops at 8:00.
Somewhat surprisingly given their playoff history and the notion they were favourites to win the series (and still could be), the Bruins were flat from the opening faceoff, though the Leafs' tireless effort influenced anything the Bruins did on each shift.
"I hope it got their attention now because it's one of the things they do well".
Nylander played an inspired 15 minutes in the 4-1 win.
The Patrice Bergeron line, if it's firing on all cylinders, gives the Bruins the best chance to win. It is the exact same number they had previous to the game 1 performance.
The line combined for eight shots on goal. Toronto would trail 3-1 heading back to TD Garden, but won two straight to force a Game 7 where they led 4-3 heading into the third before allowing four goals in the third of a 7-4 loss.
