A Bruins team that limped into the playoffs found exactly what it needed in the first game of the second season, thoroughly dominating the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 4-1 win.
The Leafs got on the board first with a power-play goal less than two minutes in, but it was all Boston from there on out. Not only did they dominate on the offensive end, finishing with a 40-20 edge in shots, the Bruins shoved around a Toronto squad that has become much more physical than in years past. That chippiness spilled over past the final whistle, so expect to see some more hard hitting when these teams take the ice for Game 2 on Saturday.
