FINAL: Bruins 4 Maple Leafs 3. Bruins Take 3-1 Series Lead On The Back Of David Krejci. Boy, It Must Suck Being A Leafs Fan Today.
It must suck to be a Maple Leafs fan today. Before this series, the Leafs hadnt even played in a playoff game since 2004. Now they've lost two in a row at home, theyre down 3-1 in the series and they are probably going to be golfing by Saturday afternoon. Thats sucks.
On top of that, their captain Dion Phaneuf is the guy who blew it for them in overtime. He was the one who went in for the pinch and gave Krejci the friggin golden opportunity, which he buried. Like I said, it sucks to be a Maple Leafs fan today.
It is friggin awesome if youre a Bruins fan today. The top line is clicking on all cylinders and Tuukka Rask is playing his balls off. Rask tied a career high in saves last night, with 45.
David Krejci had himself a night for the ages. A hat trick and the game winning goal in overtime? Are you friggin kidding me? The dude now has 10 points in the 4 games this series. Krejci friggin owns the Maple Leafs. He's now leading the NHL in scoring...just like he did back in 2011. This guy has the ability to carry this offense and when he is on, he is scary good.
With that hat trick, he now joins Cam Neely, Johnny Bucyk and Phil Esposito as the only Bruins to ever have multiple hat tricks in the playoffs. That is pissa.
I dont mean to sound like a cocky bastid, but this series is ending Friday night. The Leafs lost a game in overtime, at home, that put them down 3-1 in the series. That is absolutely demoralizing. On top of that, this team has only beat the Bruins twice in the past two years. It was take a friggin act of God for this team to win three straight games and take this series.
