Toronto Maple Leafs
It was 4-1 five and a half minutes into the third. 4-1. Time was ticking down, and the Bruins season was coming closer and closer to the end. The Leafs, led by Phil Kessel could smell the victory. They were 15 minutes away from the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, with a fat three goal lead, a lead that seemed impenetrable. It was not. The Bruins sprung out of the gate in a full sprint. They played Bruins hockey, laying hits, playing physically, and putting pressure on the Leafs. This surge led to the first goal, when the youngster Matt Bartkowski slipped a wrist shot passed Reimer, whom the Bruins could barely solve on Sunday night in Game 6. The lead was short lived though, when Cody Franson scored his first of two goals on the powerplay to lock the game up at 1. After Franson's goal, the Bruins play slowly declined.

He is a great face-off man, a top penalty killer, defensively responsible, and as displayed Monday night, incredibly...

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.
Every Bruins fan down in Boston Liked the Playoffs a lot...
But the Players, Who lived just North of Boston, apparently Did NOT!
The Players hated the Playoffs! The whole Playoff season! Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason. It could be that their heads weren’t in the game quite right. It could be, perhaps, that their skates were too tight...
Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins, Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks have been named the finalists for the 2013 Frank J. Selke Trophy.
The award is given annually "to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game."
Losing in five would have stunk. Watching James Reimer let through a few more goals after his rough beginning to the postseason would have hurt. Seeing the team’s first trip to the playoffs since 2004 end in the first round was going to be painful enough.
But the Maple Leafs had to do this to their fans. They had made the Bruins look more than underwhelming in Game 5, then again...
In case you missed it, Toronto Maple Leafs fans had their hearts ripped out of their chests on Monday night, as Leafs goalie James Reimer probably caused quite a few awkward exchanges between his wife, April, and Elisha Cuthbert.
