Bruins vs. Maple Leafs Game 2 update: Scoreless after 1 in Boston

USA TODAY Sports

Toronto has looked much better so far on Saturday.

It's a small sample size, but the Maple Leafs have to be pleased with their performance so far in Game 2.

Toronto kept Boston in check for the most part, battling to a scoreless tie after one period on Saturday. And by "in check," I mean they didn't let the Bruins score. In fact, it's a testament to the two goaltenders that it's still 0-0.

Tuukka Rask and James Reimer have had their work cut out for them, stopping 15 and 10 shots, respectively. The attacks from both sides have been fast and furious, as both squads have had trouble trying to backcheck and keep up with the other.

The chess match between Claude Julien and Randy Carlyle thus far has been more than intriguing. Beyond matching lines, it appears that Julien is throwing Zdeno Chara on the ice whenever Phil Kessel is skating around. Time will tell if that effectively neutralizes the Leafs' best player in this one.
