The Leafs that you have known and loved throughout the regular season are back!
Going from terrible, to unlucky, to actually good – the story of the Leafs postseason so far. I am going to have a heart attack before this series is done. They are making me feel my complete range of emotions and I’m scared.
The Leafs clearly succeeded early and kept the shot attempts lead somewhat until the second intermission.
Damn score effects ruining the Leafs Corsi win.
Our Leafs started out this game so hot. Doing what we all hoped they would do and not try to match the Bruins in their style, but counter with their own style they have played all season.
Insane pace, racing to both ends of the ice and creating the chances. God, this feels so damn good.
All of it leading to a beautiful high-energy hit from known goon Zach Hyman.
The good guys were in front heading into the second period.
After hearing an old man shriek about goal celebrations, our boys are back out on the ice.
Right off the bat, there was one of the weirdest plays of the season so far.
Dermott knocking over Nash right into Andersen, forcing him to the ground. But that doesn’t matter anyways as Freddie makes a spectacular and extremely lucky goal.
The high from that goal didn’t last long though.
A sneaky goal from the point by garbage boy Adam McQuaid.
But that feeling didn’t last long either as our Dad puts the damn puck in the damn net.
The competition is still hot between the two teams with a little dirty play once in a while.
The lead wouldn’t last long – yet again.
Zdeno Chara scores to tie the game at 2-2. Deserves credit for a great shot, but gotta think that Andersen should have this one, no
You remember those scoring chances from earlier in the game? Yeah, they still wouldn’t go in for Kapanen.
The good guys are on top again heading into the intermission.
The third period continued the trend for the entire game – a fucking heart attack.
Dirty plays, post hitting and utter chaos.
Other than that, it’s nice to see them smile once again.
You know what else gives me joy? Patrick Marleau scoring two goals!
For a cherry on top of this game, Andersen made a highlight reel save. Just to make us forget about the two cheap goals he let in – what a nice guy!
