This Was One to Forget - Bruins Embarras Leafs 7-0

Much to the delight of Hockey Night in Canada announcers Jim Hughson, Craig Simpson and Glenn Healy the Boston Bruins completely demolished the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight. Rookie Ben Scrivens started his second straight game for the blue and white, however tonight was nothing like his first game. Although the Leafs didn't really give him much help, Scrivens would definitely like to have some of the goals back. Mercifully the Leafs replaced Scrivens with Jonas Gustavsson after the fifth Bruins goal. 

Tyler Seguin had a hat trick on the night to lead the Bruins. While Milan Lucic added two goals and an assist. David Krejci and Shawn Thornton were the other goal scorers. Tonight's victory allowed the Bruins to win back to back games for the first time this season. 

The Leafs had no jump in their legs, and tonight's game was a humbling experience for the youngest team in the league. Whether the Leafs lost 7-0 or 3-2 a loss is a loss, The Leafs will need to learn from this experience and put it behind them. 

Men of The Match 

Leafs: Matthew Lombardi - The Leaf winger was the best on a bad Leafs team tonight. His speed created a breakaway when the game was still within reach, and along with linemates Tyler Bozak and Joey Crabb, had some decent scoring chances on the night. 

Bruins: Tyler Seguin - The 19 year old Brampton native had a wonderful game. The Bruins leading scorer this season, continues to add to his breakout season. 

Healyism of the Night: "Tyler Seguin will you marry me?" Ok, maybe he didn't come out and say this, but I read in between the lines. 

Next Game: The Leafs will look to bounce back Tuesday night against the Florida Panthers.

At least it's over. Those douches at HNIC didn't make the experience any better.
