The second game of the Leafs’ first roudn series against the Bruins happening this evening, in case you weren’t aware.
The Leafs won Game 1 on Thursday night by a score of 4-1. Tonight, the Leafs looked to do the same, or better, against the Bruins while playing in Boston.
There were no changes to the Leafs lineup from Game 1, but the Bruins brought in David Backes in place of Marcus Johansson, who the Bruins acquired at the trade deadline from the New Jersey Devils.
The Bruins had the favour of scoring first in this contest, as a puck battle behind the net led to a silver-platter feed for Charlie Coyle, who beat Frederik Andersen to make it 1-0:

As the Leafs were trying to fight back in this game, the Bruins unfortunately were able to add to their lead as Brad Marchand was left alone in driving to the net:
