In a battle for the puck in the first period of Game 6, Joakim Nordstrom was called for high sticking after he caught some of Toronto defenseman Travis Dermott’s chin following a hit. However, upon further review of the play, Nordstrom’s high sticking appeared to be a result of Dermott bumping...

Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy’s original sin was letting Patrice Bergeron get anywhere near John Tavares during the Bruins’ 4-1 loss to Toronto in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference first round at TD Garden on Thursday. Game 2 will be back here Saturday. Last season Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David...
