Maple Leafs force game 7 after Toronontians experience attack

The Leafs evened the series, hanging on for a surprising 4-3 win in Boston in Game Five, and then taking Game Six at home 3-1 behind a almost impenetrable performance in goal by 28-year-old Danish goaltender Frederik Andersen, who strangled a relentless Bruins attack, stopping 32 of the 33 shots on goal he faced. Thousands are expected to head down to Maple Leaf Square tonight for a giant three-in-one viewing party. "To show that we've taken a step we'd like to win tomorrow".

"It's nice to have those guys", said Boston forward David Pastrnak, who had four goals and five assists in the first two games of the series this year but only two assists since.

Kelly knows Toronto enters this matchup full of confidence after winning back-to-back games to force Game 7. Tuuka Rask absorbed the loss for the Bruins with two goals given up on 29 shots.

The Tampa Bay Lightning will play game one of round two at home in Tampa, but the opponent and time for that game has yet to be decided.

Toronto is seeking its first trip beyond the second round of the playoffs since 2004.

But if one is to look at trends throughout National Hockey League history, the indication would be that Boston heads into the outing with the edge.

"Our opportunity here is we've crawled our way back to be in the series", Babcock told reporters Tuesday at Mastercard Centre.

"Just enjoying the moment", Andersen said of the turnaround in his play. I think we've done it for long stretches early in the series.

The Maple Leafs, however, wend ahead with 6:35 left in the period when Marner was quickest to a loose puck in the slot and beat Rask with a backhand to the far post after Marchand couldn't clear. David Backes is an excellent screener. The '59 series ended with a 3-2 win by the Maple Leafs when Gerry Ehman scored the victor with two-and-a-half minutes left in regulation on assists from Frank Mahovlich and Carl Brewer.

The upside there would be that Rick Nash brings some offense to that line (yes, he hasn't done enough scoring in this series, but man has he had chances) and is also a good enough defensive player to handle some of the assignments Donato struggled with in Game 2. Teams scoring first hold an edge of 126-43 in 169 all-time Game 7s, home teams own 99-70. Although Andersen had surrendered three goals in the 4-3 victory at Boston in Game 5, he did it while also making 42 saves.

Marchand came close when his shot off another turnover struck the inside of Andersen's pad and bounced out the other side. That was once again the problem in game five vs. Toronto, with a chance to slam the door shut on the series in front of the home fans. Next you have Nazem Kadri at 504 - the only difference between him and Gardiner being the three-game suspension he served during this series with the Boston Bruins - while James van Riemsdyk sits at 425 and Morgan Rielly 400.

In eerily similar fashion, the Bruins led that 2013 series 3 games to 1, just like this year.

"We're fortunate to live in such a fantastic city with great first responders, and the work they've done", the Leafs coach Mike Babcock said after the game.
