Another chapter of hockey’s greatest rivalries will be added tonight. This evening, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins will meet in a decisive Game Seven to see who moves on to the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals to play the Tampa Bay Lightning. The series between the two teams has been exhilarating, and the fact that there’s been shades of their memorable playoff series in 2013, the tension is palpable not only among the fanbases, but among the hockey world.
When it was announced Toronto and Boston would meet in the first round, many pundits believed it would be the best series of the opening round in the playoffs.
When the series opened in Boston two weeks ago, it became evident early that this could be a one-sided series and be over quickly. The Bruins embarrassed the Leafs 5-1 in the first of the best of seven. Two nights later, there was no change. Boston trounced Toronto again, this time by a score of 7-3. Through those two games, the B’s first line trio, Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak, and Brad Marchand combined for an incredible 20 points. As the series shifted to The Six, the Leafs had their backs against the wall.
But in game three, Toronto was able to get back in the series on the backs of a two-goal game from Patrick Marleau and a stellar performance from Frederik Andersen. In the crucial game four, the Maple Leafs couldn’t solve Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, who made 31 saves in a 3-1 victory. With a chance to close out the series in Boston in game five, the Leafs took it to the B’s and kept the series alive with a 4-3 win. Game six, probably the best of the series, was a thriller with the Leafs once again winning 4-1 to set up the all-important game seven.
