The Maple Leafs fight more in one game than the rest of the season combined

You do what Maple Leafs veteran Nazem Kadri did against the Boston Bruins on Saturday night – drop the mitts in a desperate attempt to give your side a boost. Then, just a day later, Kadri showed that the team has some ‘toughness’ in the department of throwing hands as well. Josh Leivo, who has since been traded to the Vancouver Canucks, had the team’s lone bout this season entering Saturday evening.

David Backes rounding into form at a time at a perfect time for Bruins

It took more than a month of injuries of adjustments, but David Backes is starting to round into form at a time when the Bruins desperately need him. Some of it is about finally getting healthy after dealing with a concussion that sidelined him for the second half of October, and some of it is about a conversation Backes had with assistant coach Joe Sacco. Backes was playing a bit passively when skating on a line with younger teammates like Anders Bjork and Danton Heinen.

Bruce Cassidy: 'Men against boys' in B's loss to Florida

The Bruins had done an admirable job of grinding out one-goal games and accumulating points since losing both Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara to significant injuries a couple of weeks ago. The B's power play was an abject mess that nearly gave up a shorthanded goal in the final minutes of the first period, and didn't come close to scoring one for Boston.

31 Takes: Nylander saga was old GMs' fault

There was always going to be finger-pointing and name-calling over the outcome of the William Nylander saga. In the end, Nylander signed for what everyone has been saying for weeks: Six years at a hair under $7-million AAV. One name who has very definitively not come up in much of that blame-slinging — for reasons that seem fairly obvious at this point — is Lou Lamoriello, the former GM of the team who got kinda-sorta pushed out the door this summer.

There are some things you can always count on with the Boston Bruins, and one of them is that Tuukka Rask is always dominant in the month of November. As shaky as Rask can be in the first month of the hockey season, he is always that good once he gets a few weeks into the schedule and he absolutely knows it. You just kind of work hard in practice, try to get some shots and work with the goalie coach, and then when the game time comes, you try to be there," said Rask, after stopping 28-of-29 shots in a 2-1 shootout win over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.

In all, Donato finished with four shot attempts in 10:41 of ice time along with a blocked shot and a face-off win and managed to avoid any of the defensive issues that had plagued him in the early part of the season. It's another one-goal decision for the Bruins as has been customary for a long stretch of time for the Black and Gold.

20 Under 25 candidates: David Pastrnak is the present and future of the Bruins

It's not overstating it to say that 22-year-old David Pastrnak is both the present and the future for the Boston Bruins organization. After a solid, promising first couple of seasons in the NHL that started off with him as the youngest guy in the league during his rookie campaign, Pastrnak has gone NHL star supernova over the last two seasons while averaging 35 goals and 75 points. The speedy, skilled right winger has grown physically stronger, perfected his one-timer blast from the face-off circle on the power play and is beginning to turn into an impact player in all three zones while learning the two-way game under the tutelage of Patrice Bergeron.
