Riley Nash officially out for Bruins playoff opener

Nazem Kadri of the Toronto Maple Leafs reacts after being called for boarding during the third period of Game 1 in Boston

Nazem Kadri of the Toronto Maple Leafs reacts after being called for boarding during the third period of Game 1 in Boston

Koropatnicki says a long playoff run by the leafs could add up to almost $20,000 in food and drink sales and they're not the only business benefiting.

Torey Krug executed a ideal zone entry on Boston's first power play - facing little to no resistance from the Leafs - and then passed to Brad Marchand, who beat Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen for the first goal at 5:28 of the opening period.

Boston stormed out of the gate in the first inside a raucous TD Garden, and grabbed the lead on the power play at 5:28 when Krug fed a pass between the skates of Leafs defenceman Roman Polak off the rush to Marchand, who beat Andersen on a move to the backhand. If one or two others can hold their own and gain confidence in this series, the B's are in good shape.

There will be much discussion in the coming days about what adjustments can be made to push back against the Marchand-Bergeron-Pastrnak trio. Marner led both teams in scoring in their four meetings with nine points while nobody on the Bruins had more than four.

Plame, a covert agent, had denied Libya was a source to Iraq for nuclear materials. They argued that he was the victim of an overzealous prosecutor.

Another impressive goal was scored by Sean Kuraly. Zdeno Chara, who has lost a step, but remains a huge presence, plays 20+ minutes, along with Torey Krug and McAvoy. Force them to break out pucks, put them in uncomfortable positions and try to tilt the ice, and I thought we did a real good job with that early on.

A great keep-in by Matt Grzelcyk kept the play alive, and after David Krejci got the puck down low, he fired the puck towards the net, seeing that Backes was there, and on the second attempt was able to score.

"We have worked to create additional access for fans by giving away 200 free tickets per game through the Ford Fan Deck and contests as well as one of the best fan viewing experiences in the league with Maple Leaf Square [outside the ACC]", wrote MLSE spokesman Dave Haggith in an email. We have some younger guys; we have some guys we're going to lean on. First Kadri was called for a boarding penalty as he hit Wingels behind the net and then four minutes later this happened.

After Kadri was tossed for the hit on Wingels, Krejci rounded out the scoring from a terrible angle on the power play at 11:29.

Oklahoma's Largest Teachers Union Says The Walkout Is Over
The state legislature only approved a fraction of that funding demand and teachers made no further progress since last Friday. I think they need to pay attention to the fact that we are their constituents.

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty got a one-game suspension for a hard check against the Vegas Golden Knights in those teams' first game, so it's safe to say that Kadri will be spending some time in the press box, as well. After a shot from the point was put aside but not out of danger by Tuukka Rask, Patrick Marleau had a couple of chances at the puck but couldn't finish. He made some big saves especially when the Bruins were on the penalty kill.

The Bruins controlled 5-on-5 play pretty much all night, stringing together long shifts in the offensive zone and putting up 54 shot attempts and 30 shots on goal at even strength, compared to just 30 and 19 for the Leafs.

With the Bruins taking Game 1, eyes will be on Saturday night when the two teams play again. "Saturday there is potential but we'll see how he progresses".
