Bruins' Bergeron takes game to another level

Known more for his skating and passing, Rielly showed a rarely-seen edge in Game 3 to lead Toronto's response.

Bergeron, the best two-way player in the National Hockey League, still works on little details, especially with his shot - developing a quicker release in the slot in particular. Head coach Mike Babcock indicated after practice on Wednesday that the veteran would not play in Game 4, but his skating for the second time since being injured may be an indicator that Komarov could make a return later in the series.

"It's a feeling you can't really describe", Matthews said.

The Bruins have the ability to pounce on the Leafs and be a game away from advancing to the next round.

"He was outstanding", Babcock said before deadpanning: "His mom came to town, gave him a little bit of a tightening".

But it did happen, and now investigators in Philadelphia and Dallas have to pour through the maintenance records and the debris. The 43-year-old bank executive and mother of two died from her injuries, after passengers and crew members pulled her back in.

There haven't been any reports of how the injury occurred, but Bergeron took a number of hits in Game 3.

Bergeron had five assists in the first two games while Pastrnak exploded for four goals in the first two games in Boston.

But on Thursday, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak recognized that while they play their respective roles, Bergeron is one of the handful of elite players in a class by themselves. "He adjusts to things every game". "They're constantly making you look better". "We expect (Boston) in Game 4 to want to respond from Game 3, but we have to elevate our game".

Cassidy had Riley Nash taking reps at centre on the Bergeron line at the morning skate, something he's done on occasion to rest his star in a long campaign. "You wouldn't get to know the players as good but when you play them night after night after night".
