Boston Bruins vs Toronto Maple Leafs – Round 1 – Game #7 Recap

Boston Bruins (4-3) v. Toronto Maple Leafs (3-3)

 

Game Recap:

The Bruins came from the first puck drop and got a couple of goals in the first courtesy of Joakim Nordstrom and Marcus Johansson and just continued to play solid defense through the rest of the period. Not giving many chances to the Leafs offense.

Second period the Leafs came strong and gave it all they and they got rewarded with a goal from John Tavares.  Outshooting and outplaying the Bruins but couldn’t tie the game.

The third period brought some coaching mistakes and on ice mistakes courtesy of William Nylander. The Bruins would score quick thanks to Sean Kuraly and then would score 2 empty net goals. This would seal their entry to round 2.
