Game 6. Boston at Toronto

GAME STORY
On their home ice Toronto easily handled Boston by a score of 7 to 3.
Toronto got going early, scoring 3 times in the first period. REILLY
SMITH had three assists for Toronto. And PATRIC HORNQVIST had two goals.
Also EVANDER KANE found the net twice. Other goal scorers were BLAKE WHEELER,
EVGENI MALKIN and TYLER TOFFOLI for Boston and MIKAEL BACKLUND, JAMES
van RIEMSDYK and RYAN McDONAGH for Toronto.

Toronto came into Game 6 with a 3-2 lead, fresh off of a huge comeback win in Boston, capped by a Mikko Koivu goal with 5 seconds left in regulation to win it.  The Leafs carried that momentum into the start of Game 6, with Ryan McDonagh scoring just 22 seconds into the game.  The Leafs struck again 4 minutes later, this time from Mikael Backlund, and again 4 more minutes later on a PPG by James Van Riemsdyk.  But this high-scoring series was not over and the Bruins came back to life with 2 of their own from Blake Wheeler and then Tyler Toffoli, with Toffoli’s goal coming with just 13 seconds left in the period.  The Leafs escaped the 1st clinging otheir 1 goal lead.
In the 2nd the Leafs struck for 3 in a row again, this time it was Evander Kane at 4:29, Patrik Hornqvist at 9:04 and Kane again at 11:45.  But the Bruins took advantage of a Hornqvist minor and Evgeni Malkin struck quickly to cut the lead to 6-3.  The Bruins could not mount the comeback this time though and when Hornqvist added an insurance goal on the PP at 14:49 of the 3rd the Leafs’s fans breathed a sigh of relief and finally won a playoff series for the first time in a long time.
Toronto 7, Boston 3
Toronto wins series 4-2.
Congratulations to Bob and his Bruins on a great season.
