Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul had himself a solid first-round series against the Bruins. He scored three goals and added an assist, but it wasn’t quite enough as the B’s won Game 7 in overtime.
The forward was held pointless in the deciding game, a game in which the Leafs blew a 3-1 third-period lead. Lupul had a chance to change the nature of the game, but he was turned away by Tuukka Rask on a breakaway.
Lupul, as one might expect, isn’t taking the loss very well. Like many of today’s athletes, Lupul turned to social media on Tuesday afternoon to share his feelings.
This is what he tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.

Joffrey Lupul does not tweet very often. He has tweeted just over 1,100 times, and he hadn’t tweeted since April 23. The playoffs began on April 30. Lupul finally broke his three-week Twitter silence by sending this emotionally-charged message on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after his Toronto Maple Leafs blew a 4-1 3rd-period lead in Game 7 against the Boston Bruins:

With a win-or-go-home Game 7 against the Bruins at TD Garden just hours away, Maple Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul spoke confidently to members of the media from the team hotel in Boston Monday afternoon.
Lupul, who has three goals and one assist in the series, said the pressure is on the Bruins, who at one point held a three...

Mark Fraser suffered one of the worst hockey injuries to date during Toronto's Game 4 loss to the Bruins.
The Maple Leafs defenseman took a Milan Lucic shot to the forehead and required surgery to repair a broken bone in "his cranial area." Days after the surgery rook place, a Reddit user uploaded a photo of what he or she claims to be Fraser's CT scan from St...
After last weeks untimely pinch by Dion Phaneuf in game 4 that led to an overtime goal and the Bruins taking a 3-1 lead in the first round series there was a lot of evaluation of Phaneuf as a defenseman both good and bad. I was intending to write an article to discuss the relative [...]The post Dion Phaneuf when protecting a lead vs when playing catch up appeared first on HockeyAnalysis.com.
This will go down as one of the bigger collapses in NHL history. The Toronto Maple Leafs had a 4-1 lead with just under 11 minutes left in the third period when the unthinkable began to happen. Nathan Horton got things going for the Boston Bruins with this shot that started a monumental comeback.
Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask did his part too, stopping a key Matt Frattin breakaway...
Unfortunately for Maple Leafs fans, Toronto pulled a Sergio, choking in Game 7 against the Boston Bruins. Now, naturally, the memes choke the internet.

Holy ********* what a third period.
Part of us feels a little bad for these Leaf fans, mostly 'cause growing up in Boston we've totally been there. You're day will come one day, Toronto... maybe. But for now, here are some great pics/video fo stunned Maple Leaf fans and players. Enjoy.
Not sure if crying or taking a ****...
So the Toronto Maple Leafs choked harder than Bob from Bill Swerski’s Superfans, blowing an insurmountable 4-1 lead with 10 minutes to go to the Boston Bruins in game 7 of the Stanley Cup playoffs. You have to feel for Toronto right? A city and nation starving to get back to the playoffs for the first time in 9 years, on the verge of a huge come from behind series victory upset...
Milan Lucic and Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf must go way back. How else can you explain Lucic going dick tap on Phaneu…
Tuukka Rask played the hero in Monday night’s Game 7 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Bruins goalie made 24 saves in the 5-4 overtime win, and one in a crucial moment that changed the momentum of the game.
The Maple Leafs blew a 4-1 lead in the final minutes and the B’s were able to come out on top, in part, thanks to Rask’s strong play in front of the net.
Check out the...

The Toronto Maple Leafs followed the same blueprint that earned them a victory in Boston on Friday in a 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal on Sunday night.
Not only were the scores of the two victories the same, but how the games unfolded were remarkably similar.
After a scoreless and tentative first period for both teams,...
Check out this amazing save by Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer on Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton. This is just how the last three games have gone for the Boston Bruins. Can't get a goal when they need one. Not burying the chances when they are presented to them.
