The exact same thing could have happened with the Tavaras line out there. The rightness or wrongness is based on the decision, not the results.

You play the odds. Your best line against their worst. Odds are your best line will dominate. You put your worst line against their worst, who knows what happens?

Not trying to be a harbinger of bad but this would be huge to NOT gag in the 3rd. It would really help the ol' confidence

The Bruins have looked vulnerable tonight but they didn't get 107 pts or whatever for nothing.  It'll be a whale of a 3rd.

Yeah the biggest thing this game is showing is that it was stupid for so many pundits to declare this a nice series for a Boston.   This is two 100 point teams battling it out.   It isn’t going to be a short series unles one team finds a gear and has a big edge in goaltending

Actually it wasn't smart. Immediately the play went the other way and Leafs were hemmed in their own zone. Instead with either Tavares or Matthews in the Ozone against a tired 4th line you might get an offensive chance. You don't have to defend every move Babcock makes especially when it's obviously wrong.

You're free to express your opinion, but it's clearly NOT obviously wrong given that several people disagree with you.
I agree with him. It was a stupid move by Babs. He started the 4ty line a minute or so earlier in the D zone. Bruins go with Bergeron, Freddie gets the puck Babs changes the line to JT's. Next stoppage is an icing against the Bruins 4th and Babs throws out our 4th. Not smart. You have to try and take advantage of the line match ups. He didn't, 4th line lost the puck and got hemmed in our zone. Sorry that's all on Babs there.

Which so far the Leafs have.  So far.  They need to keep the pressure on this whole period and not play to not lose.

Seriously.  I guarantee the same thing has happened to Kadri, Matthews, and Tavares.  I guess putting any of them out is the wrong decision.

I expect Babs has reminded the guys of the TB/Columbus game.

Babs gets shit for starting the 4th line in the D zone.
Babs gets shit for starting the 4th line in the O zone.

Babs gets shit for line matching.
Babs gets shit for not line matching.

Honestly, it's a good thing Babs doesn't give a shit what fans say, because it's impossible to please them all.

So Chara  is ok to slash multiple times with that stick that has a concrete shaft....this is NOT the NBA where "stars" don't get called for fouls...
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
