Leafs' Gardiner says demons of Game 7 collapse vs. Bruins are gone

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Garret Sparks reacts following the Ottawa Senators fourth goal in NHL action Saturday

He's the first to do it since John Ferguson in 1963, and the first to record a hat trick since Alex Smart in 1943.

The Bruins average 9:38 penalty minutes per game, which is second most in the league. "It feels like a dream".

"Auston and I are teammates but more importantly, good friends", said Marner.

"I don't think too much about it, to be honest", Gardiner said. Not only did he post a dismal minus-5 rating in that game, Gardiner was on the ice for Boston's final three goals.

"The atmosphere (in the Bell Centre) was awesome", Shaw added.

"As you go on further in your career, you get more mature and more confident in the way you process things, I've found a way to park it better and use it in the right way", Andersen said. He was in the running for the Vezina Trophy throughout the season, but a slow finish ultimately faded out his chance.

"A bad way to end, obviously, not making playoffs", Shaw said. We know this team very well, we know how they play.

"It's a game for the history books".

Montreal tied it when Poehling scored again at 2:56 of the second period, shooting in the rebound after Jeff Petry's shot deflected off a Maple Leafs' stick and rang off the crossbar.

Any way you look at it, and we can say whatever we want, we are a real good team in the National Hockey League and we're a team that has got better and better and better.

I know what comes next after a headline like that. "Good for him, good start".

Gardiner notched his third of the season from the left point at 8:03 of the first, shooting a rolling puck that deflected off a Canadiens' stick, ducked and fluttered into the goal. The Canadiens were eliminated when the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the New York Rangers in a shootout on Friday.

In the last two playoff series between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins, the Leafs have held a third period Game 7 lead.

Lindgren and Andersen both stopped 44-of-49 shots.

Not a fan of Jake Gardiner? The American-born Poehling, Montreal's first pick (25th overall) in the 2017 draft, recently completed his third NCAA season at St. Cloud State.

Many Leafs who were part of that game have talked about redemption this spring, and how the hard loss - the Leafs had a 4-3 lead entering the third period - now serves as a source of inspiration.

With 11:56 left to play in a 4-4 game, Kapanen broke the deadlock with a shot from the slot.

NOTES: With an eye toward the playoffs, Toronto rested four of its top defensemen: Ron Hainsey, Jake Muzzin, Nikita Zaitsev and Travis Dermott.

Apple is also increasingly engaging with pro sports an athletes for everything from iPhone-driven augmented reality training, to stars like Matthews and Marner making Apple Watch a regular part of their lives.

"It's an opportunity to play some guys, we have people a little banged up", Babcock said. Toronto is no question the faster team, but the physical play could really have an affect on slowing them down and creating turnovers.
