BOSTON 4, Toronto 1 (Series is tied 1-1)
This would be a very physical contest between the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs with the Bruins getting the 4-1 win, and tying the series 1-1.
This game would not come without controversy as Toronto’s Nazem Kadri delivered a cross-check to the head of Boston’s Jake DeBrusk, which not only ejected him from the game but also earned him an in-person from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety.
TXHT should have more on this as soon as there is a decision reached from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety.
With the series now tied 1-1, both teams will try to take the series lead when Game 3 of the series takes place tomorrow night.
