On Saturday night, the Bruins took on the Leafs in Toronto in one of the 5000 HNIC games this season to feature the Leafs. While the Bruins showed great effort with 46 shots on goal and a heroic late third period effort by David Pastrnak to tie up the game, they couldn’t quite seal the deal, falling in overtime.

The Leafs celebrated as if they had just won the Stanley Cup or another important game.
Really happy for the Leafs. If that was Game 8 they would have just sent it to Game 9 to have their hearts ripped out in that game. Credit where credit is due.

Anyway, they won without John Tavares and the B’s almost won without David Krejci.
On Tuesday, the two teams are back at it, for an untraditional home-and-home of sorts; The B’s wait for a Toronto team that will face Columbus tonight on the road.
So it isn’t too bad being this squad right now having only 1 regulation loss in 8 games played and having gained 2 points from consecutive games when they pushed for overtime.
Please enjoy this gif from the game.
