Holy shift. Boston just completed the first truly epic comeback of the 2013 playoffs. Wow!

Poor Toronto. This is what happens when you don't have a real #1 goaltender.

I honestly dunno if you can really place much of the blame on Reimer...The Leafs in front of him started playing poorly half-way thru the 3rd period, and more or less left him hanging.

IMHO this series went to game 7 courtesy of Reimer.

I dont care if he has an IQ of 10, if he can burry a puck at the game and come home to ^^^ and bury something else, hes got a right to be pretty damn cocky.

Its just too bad Miss Cuthbert is sloppy 30's now :P

I'm gonna say the Bruins will outlast the Leafs in 7. Classic Original 6 matchup.

Called it. :shifty:

Good thing we aren't them, right? We flirted with that fate 3 times, but managed to avoid it each time. (game 2, game 6, game 7 to a lesser extent)

That has to be the worst feeling for the leafs and their fans... I cant even imagine.

Tuuka Rask narrowly avoided being dumped this offseason IMO. During the game I was wondering if they would go after Luongo this summer. (Rask let philly come back from 3-0 and almost let Toronto come back from 3-1)



Called it. :shifty:

So did I! I picked B's in 7 on the bracket challenge

Absolutely devastating end to this series for the Leafs. To be down 3 games to 1, make a dramatic comeback, be winning 4-1 with 10 min left in Game 7, 4-2 with 90 seconds left and lose is more than anyone should have to handle. If something like that happened to the Wings, I would feel gutted like someone in my family died. Really feel bad for their fan base.

Any suspension for Kelly's brutal elbow that drew blood all over the face of Reimer? Or is that apart of keeping the players safe?

By "Reimer," do you mean "Van Riemsdyk?"

If you're talking about the play that I think you are, it could easily be 2 minutes the other way for . . . well, what exactly do you call tackling a guy away from the play, then laying down on him, preventing him from trying to backcheck what appeared to be an odd-man rush developing for Toronto? I think that's pretty much the dictionary definition of interference. Should have been a power play for the Bruins. Kelly losing his cool negates the power play. Give the guy an extra 2 for drawing blood, and maybe it's a 2-minute power play for Toronto. JVR was asking for trouble. Shame on Kelly for indulging him, but let's not make it sound like the Leafs are skating Mother Theresas.

That play worked to Boston's advantage, sure. But if the refs were out to get Toronto, they were doing a lousy job of it. See the roughing penalty on Lucic for (unsuccessful) instigation . . . which was no more and no less than Orr's strategy v Chara in the first period. Not to mention that Toronto is every bit as physical as Boston. Maybe more so. It wasn't the Leafs who were short 3 of their top-6 defensemen in game 7.

Talk about epic failure by the Leafs. This is why you don't let up in the 3rd period, never gotten why teams do it and will continue to do it. Play hard and don't let up. Nice job by the Bruins to not quite or give up and show why they have won a cup in the past.

I think it boils down to being an inexperienced Toronto squad...They had the Bruins on the ropes, but a lack of experience, and confidence on behalf of the Leafs allowed the Bruins to getting back into the game.

I'm gonna dvr the game on NESN this afternoon...I gotta admit to having a "soft-spot" for the Bruins, and I like that Jack Edwards.

It's very easy to see which members of LGW are American and which are Canadian. As a Canadian Wings fan in Southern Ontario, dealing with the arrogance and annoyance of Leaf fans and the Toronto media is almost unbearable. Their loss last night was the most amazing hockey moment I have experienced since Game 6 of the 2008 Stanley Cup Final. Thank you Boston Bruins!

I'm from Toronto, and while I do feel bad for the die hard Leaf fans, it is more fun to tease Leaf fans than Bruins fans just because of the amount of them.

I am American, but I consider myself to be an "honourary Canadian" (see what I did there) ;)

Helluva game ... for some reason cheering for the Canadian team but most of the time, I despise them. Making it to the playoffs was considered a success this year but when you are that close to going to round 2 and losing it ... they need to learn how to finish OT from our boys!

No, they need to learn how to keep a 2-goal lead with a minute and change left in the third.

I thought the Wings blowing late 3rd period leads was pretty bad, but the Leafs just preformed one heck of a"choke" job. I'm sure lots of Fans were crackin the bubbly, then saying wtf just happened :-)

I'm canadian and seeing this hurts my brain lol. to hell with unnecessary u's!! and to hell with spelling center centre. maybe i should be an honorary american?

Soon as Boston got #3, I knew the Leafs were done. They zoomed in on Reimer's face and you could just see it. He was rattled. The look in his eyes just said that the Leafs' season was finished.
