Bruce Arthur: Leafs go missing in Game 1 loss to Bruins

  Bruce Arthur: Leafs go missing in Game 1 loss to Bruins BOSTON—Welcome to the playoffs, kids. The Toronto Maple Leafs entered this post-season talking about a long run, even chasing the Cup. They really believe that. They have depth and speed, and young as they are, they thought this could be a special year.And then the puck dropped in Game 1 against the Boston Bruins and it was a beating, if hardly a fight. The Bruins came out, as a Russian goalie once said, like gorillas out of a cage. They won every puck battle, erased open spaces, tried to both start and finish checks. Brad Marchand tried to kiss Leo Komarov in there somewhere, too.

Boston Bruins forward Rick Nash will play in Game 1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday, head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed.

The Bruins acquired Nash prior to the trade deadline, but he hasn't played since March 17 due to a concussion. In his 11 games with Boston, he collected three goals and three assists.

Nash's return means rookie Ryan Donato will be a healthy scratch. Since joining the team late in the season, the 22-year-old collected five goals and four assists in 12 games.

The 33-year-old Nash has 15 goals and 41 points in 77 career playoff games as he begins the quest for his first Stanley Cup.

"It's on me."Backup Anton Khudobin came into the game in relief of Rask, turning aside eight shots, but the Bruins couldn't overcome the Maple Leafs' early lead.Game 6 goes Monday in Toronto.
