Browns didn’t bring Minkah Fitzpatrick in for a visit either
The Browns are doing a good job of masking their intentions with the fourth overall pick, or else they’re just cheap.
We mentioned yesterday that they hadn’t scheduled visits with either Saquon Barkley or Bradley Chubb, but they’re not the only top prospects not making their way to Cleveland.
Marleau’s first goal moved him past Gordie Howe into 17th place on the NHL’s all-time playoffs list. … Johnsson left the game in the third period favoring his left leg after he collided with Marchand, and did not return. … Toronto was again missing C Nazem Kadri for the second game of a three-game suspension for his hit on Tommy Wingels in Game 1, Tomas Plekanec was moved up from the fourth line to play between Marleau and Marner on the No. 2 unit. … Maple Leafs forward Leo Komarov sat out with a lower-body injury suffered Saturday, allowing veteran Dominic Moore to move into Plekanec’s old spot on the fourth line between Johnsson and Kapanen. … Hyman returned to the top line with Matthews and Nylander.
Since they were doing my right foot, they said, ‘You know what, Vince? There’s a high chance you could potentially break your left one.’ So they went ahead and they put a screw in my left one as well, Biegel told ESPN Wisconsin. That was kind of out of precautionary purposes only, but it was a decision we definitely felt strongly on and I’m glad we did so both of my feet are healthy for the rest of my career, and I don’t have to worry about them ever again.
He returned to play nine games but was playing catchup. That’s why coach Mike McCarthy expects Biegel to make a jump this season after a full offseason.
Biegel worked out at EXOS in San Diego for part of the offseason before joining teammates Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, David Bakhtiari, Kenny Clark and Lance Kendricks at ProActive outside Los Angeles.
Toronto will look to even the series here in Game 4 on Thursday night.
Adam McQuaid and Zdeno Chara scored, Sean Kuraly had two assists and Tuukka Rask had 26 saves for the Bruins.
First couple games we had a couple bounces go our way, tonight we didn’t, Marchand said. That’s hockey.
Pastrnak (four goals, five assists), Marchand (one goal, five assists) and Bergeron (five assists) had their way with Toronto through the first two games, but the Leafs held Boston’s big line at bay thanks in large part to Marner, Marleau and Tomas Plekanec.
