BOSTON (WBZ-AM) --- Bruins failed to put away the Maple Leafs Saturday in Game 5 when they lost 4-3 at the Garden, and a large part of the problem was a power outage.

B's went 1-for-6 on the power play after going 5-for-11 through the first four games of the series.

Given that earlier success, Brad Marchand isn't concerned.

"We got one big goal there on the Power Play last night, but we need to be better, especially the 5 on 3, we've got to capitalize on that," he said. "Other than that, the last couple of games we didn't really have any opportunities--we had one in the two games before that--so, so far in the series, we've been pretty good."

So, what's the key?

"We can be better, we did have some looks," Marchand said. "We just have to capitalize on them. I think that was probably the difference. In the first couple of days, we capitalized on our power plays, on our opportunities. Last night, their goalie came up with big saves, or we missed our shots or whatnot, but that's how it goes. We'll move on, and hopefully we'll be better tomorrow."

Bruins still lead the NHL with a 35 percent success rate with the extra skater after finishing fourth at nearly 24 percent during the regular season. Leafs, of course, are a top-five team on the PP as well, both in the regular campaign and postseason.

B's lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is Monday in Toronto at 7 p.m.
