National Hockey League head coach gives interesting take on Bruins vs. Leafs playoff series

At 6-foot-3, 216lbs Muzzin is the only blueliner for the Maple Leafs who wasn't involved in the series last season. "Honestly, I'm just in shock right now".

"I think he is someone that people have decided isn't a good player, and so they pick on him". We need to take advantage of our opportunities and make sure we're prepared for each game.

Boston leans heavily on Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak, a line that combined for 30 points in the series against Toronto past year and 260 points this season.

After taking a 3-1 lead in the series, Boston lost Games 5 and 6 and fell behind 4-1 in the third period of the decisive seventh game.

Gardiner, a minus-5 that night, hasn't watched footage of the 7-4 elimination loss he took full ownership for, but the sting still lingered past Boston's own elimination to Tampa Bay in Round 2. DeBrusk also adds that heavy hockey element that many believe will be an issue come playoff time for Toronto. Andersen will use this last start before Game 1 on Thursday in Boston to keep his conditioning.

"I think Toronto has a heck of a team, I think there's going to be a tonne of pressure on them", said head coach No. 2.

"I can tell you right now, we can't find another one". "We'll be more prepared this year having the experience from last year [and] I think we'll be better prepared going into that building in Games 1 and 2, more comfortable and more confident in our position". They are extremely hungry after the Bruins sent them packing past year in the playoffs.

"Everybody knows the history between the two teams, but we don't like to dwell on the past", said Kadri, one of just players remaining on the roster from Toronto's other Game 7 collapse against Boston back in 2013 - the other is Jake Gardiner.

"But I've got a good support system, my family is very supportive".

Gardiner had three goals and 27 assists in 62 games this season.

The 20-year-old notched a hat trick and then added the shootout victor to lead the Canadiens to a 6-5 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs in the season finale for both teams, which came one day after Montreal was eliminated from playoff contention. The eight-year veteran is in the final year of his contact and that uncertainty does create a sense of urgency heading into the post-season. And I think the fans that followed our team all year saw how hard we've worked. And in a way that really takes advantage of the intimacy, immediacy, and mobility of the iPhone.

It's going to be another long off-season for the Canadiens and their fans after missing the playoffs for the second straight year, but the future looks a lot brighter now with Poehling in it.

"I was telling my wife, 'He's starting to like me a bit more.' He's smiling".

Boston definitely has the edge going in.

Gardiner said the Leafs are more than prepared to face a hostile crowd in Beantown this year. But the Bruins' defense will slow them down enough in Boston, and ultimately come out on top with another thrilling Game 7 victory inside TD Garden. "All the young guys know what it's like to go into that building now". The last couple of games we really made a push.
