The underlying question: Will Darcy Tucker and Paul Mara square off again? A TV reporter asked Tucker whether he'll seek out a Bruin if the Leafs have a multi-goal lead.

"Probably not the best question I've heard today," Tucker responded.

Several of the Leafs talked about Boston's defensive style, which saw the Bruins clutter up the neutral zone after they took claimed the lead on Saturday.

"The last couple times, they got the lead and sat back," said Andrew Raycroft. "It's similar to a team like New Jersey. They clog the neutral zone. We have to find a way to fight through that and work it low or jump out to a lead. Then they have to come at us."

Paul Maurice said he expected a 1-2-2 trap from the Bruins under Dave Lewis. Instead, Maurice said the Bruins play more like the Anaheim Ducks, featuring a 1-4 formation with four skaters in the neutral zone.

More from the Boston room after they skate.
