How is it possible that the Leafs and the NHL and NBC can't get it together and tell the people right in front of the cameras to sit down?

Bizarre.

Any other league would have a policy in place that says, "IF you want these seats, you sit your arse down."

I mean, this is TV being shown in 2 different nations and maybe around the world, and all we see is the back of someone's head.

They skated well the first two periods, third period was hairy but thats the NHL playoffs, come out strong Tuesday and move to the next round.
Note: need the Sox to win in extras for the Boston trifecta

It’s going to be wild . Even with home ice Toronto skates so well that they will have to be all over them for 60 minutes, maybe more. It was really good to see the Bruins turn it around today, great effort by every line, good job by Cassidy too, they need to keep Pastrnak with Krecji so shutting one line down doesn’t keep them off the board.

I think the Bruins dodged one there

For the most part they looked like the better team out there today to me. Not for the full 60, that isn't going to happen against a quality team in their own house, but for more than enough of it. I got concerned during those prolonged stretches of zone time the B's gave up when the Leafs were pressing in the 3rd but they seemed more determined to keep the Leafs on the perimeter rather than challenging their point men and getting caught too high. Hard to complain because it worked but it was a bit nerve wracking

The team that’s leading almost always has to stave off their opponent at the end, and if the Bruins are leading at the end on Tuesday you can pretty much bet that it will be really hairy once again.

No doubt but what I was talking about was the conscious defensive set. The Bruins obviously weren't playing high and aggressive but instead boxing as much as possible. Of particular note was Marchand not going after the pointman in the defensive zone the way he usually does but instead making a determined effort to take away inside passing routes, they weren't terribly concerned with Toronto's D unloading

At least his head was in the game, unlike his team.

I don’t really disagree, but the risk that goes with forechecking hard against a team as skilled as Toronto is giving up odd man rushes, and they sure as hell didn’t want that. And I think you will see a similar approach if they are leading in the 3rd in game 7.
