As we all know, the city of Toronto lives and breathes hockey. Now that the Maple Leafs are in the playoffs for the first time in 9 years, fans are going absolutely bonkers. A rather large group of them gathered outside the Air Canada Centre to watch the Leafs take on the Bruins in game 1 in Boston. Despite their eventual 4-1 loss, the Leafs scored the first goal of the game, and this was the scene in Toronto:

Is this real life we're dealing with here? James Reimer basically said he gave up Boychuk's goal because of the seats.
Reimer wasn't happy with Boychuk shot beating him high.Says may have been fooled by a black seat in stands at eye level, but says no excuse.

Oh, Toronto. The Maple Leafs hadn’t made the playoffs since 2004 until they notched a spot this year, but don’t think that the goodwill from going to the postseason will make anyone go easy on the team.
The Toronto Sun had two fine covers prepared for the hometown team Thursday morning after the Leafs got shellacked in Game 1 of their opening-round playoff series against the...
from Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun,
If you’re going to win in the playoffs, your best players have to be your best players.
It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
But none of Phil Kessel, Joffrey Lupul, Nazem Kadri, Dion Phaneuf nor James Reimer were good on Wednesday night in the Maple Leafs’ first Stanley Cup playoff game in nine years.
Like the majority...
The NHL has suspended Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference for Game 2 of Boston’s first-round playoff series against the Maple Leafs.
Ference was disciplined after a high check on Toronto’s Mikhail Grabovski midway through the first period in Game 1. Ference was not penalized for the hit, upon further review, the league’s discipline office ruled that he illegally targeted Gabovski’s...
from Christopher L. Gasper of the Boston Globe,
Phil Kessel is a man of few words and, when it comes to facing his former team, a man of even fewer goals.
Give Kessel credit. The former Bruin spoke postgame on a night when his silence on the ice spoke volumes about his reputation as a faux franchise forward. Turned into white noise on skates, Kessel could only watch as the...
At the 6:59 in the first period during Game One of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins first round playoff match-up, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference elbowed Mikhail Grabovski in the head. No penalty was called. Grabovski was shaken up my the hit, but stayed in the game. After one period, it`s 2-1 Bruins. Related:Toronto vs. Boston Game One 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs Live Stream
“Thank you, Kessel” is a popular refrain around Boston any time the B’s and Maple Leafs square off, and that won’t change as the two face off in the playoffs.
However, a more discerning fan will note that Boston and Toronto are linked by more than just the trade that sent Phil Kessel north in exchange for draft picks that turned into Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton. Bruins...
The Toronto Maple Leafs have waited nine years to get back in the NHL playoffs, and the 4-1 loss in Game 1 to the Boston Bruins has to be a huge letdown for Maple Leafs Nation, especially, given the fact that James van Riemsdyk gave the Toronto Maple Leafs an early 1-0 with a power-play marker. After that, the Boston Bruins exposed Toronto's playoff inexperience, scoring four...
It is exactly nine years and one day since the Toronto Maple Leafs celebrated a post-season victory. Hockey Hall of Famers Mats Sundin, Brian Leetch and Ed Belfour were the three stars in a 3-1 victory over Philadelphia at Air Canada Center.
The club has gone through 656 regular season games, four general managers and coaching changes, numerous trades and countless roster reshuffles...
Ference elbow on Grabovski in the 1st was reviewed. Supplemental discipline possible, but seems unlikely.

Bruins Blog: Johnny Boychuck on Colon Orr's Cross Check One such play was Colton Orr’s cross check to the back of Johnny Boychuk, who then crashed into the glass and went down.

The first playoff game for the Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t go exactly how the team (or fans) would have wanted it to as they fall to the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the first round series by a score of 4-1. The Maple Leafs opened the scoring for the series as James van Riemsdyk [...]
