Round 1 Game 5 Postgame: Leafs vs. Bruins

Okay everybody, take a deep breath, and relax.
We did the thing again. We went into Boston and, when we needed to, got the victory. Now we head home with an opportunity to finish the job. Let’s take a closer look at how they did.
1st Period
The Leafs did an excellent job in the first of keeping the game tight, holding the Bruins to just six shots through the first, with some excellent defensive plays.

2nd Period
The second period saw much of the same, as it was a tightly played game, but we did start to see more chances.
