The Toronto Maple Leafs' return to the playoffs did not go according to head coach Randy Carlyle's plan.

His team scored the opening goal on an early power play, but the Boston Bruins dominated the rest of the action and recorded a 4-1 victory in the opening game of the first playoff series between the two teams in 39 years.

The Bruins got two late goals in the first period from Wade Redden and Nathan Horton to seize control of the game.

The Leafs had few good scoring opportunities as the Bruins dominated with their physical play.

Surprisingly, the Bruins also outskated the Leafs, who were thought to be the faster team.

The teams will meet in Game 2 at the TD Garden Saturday night.
