Boston Bruins prevail in Game 7, Jake DeBrusk saves the day

Nazem Kadri

The Boston Bruins proved everyone wrong last night with their Game 7 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

That's something they couldn't do five years ago, when they became the first team in National Hockey League history to blow a three-goal, third-period deficit and lose a Stanley Cup playoff game. Leading the way was Jake DeBrusk with two goals. The Leafs scored the period's only two goals despite being outshot 13-6. On a team that features the likes of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, David Krejci, Rick Nash and Zdeno Chara, DeBrusk was the most consistent player in Black and Gold.

If you were wondering how long it would take for rumors to start swirling and fingers to start getting pointed following the Maple Leafs' Game 7 loss to the Bruins Wednesday night, the answer was not very long.

Marleau opened the scoring on the power play at 2:05 of the first when he tipped Gardiner's point shot past Rask, but DeBrusk tied it on a Boston man advantage just 2:42 later when he redirected Pasternak's effort from the high slot. Who are some of the players that really stood out in the deciding game?

Matthews had 34 goals in his sophomore season, which was limited to 64 games due to injury.

First, a low shot from Travis Dermott sailed through a mass of skaters in the crease and past Rask to tie things up just 2:07 into the stanza. "We had three of them". And Babcock didn't have it with Marner at the beginning of the season - that's well documented - but at the end, Marner became a real go-to-guy for Babcock.

"A lot of this game is on me", Gardiner said after the loss. He packed all his selves into Game 7 and blew up, and the Leafs didn't give him enough help to overcome it.

Based on the play of Matthews this series, he'd usually come away with more points.

Toronto will again be a fast, young and offensively risky team next season - but they need to learn how to win the big game. The Bruins were lucky to escape allowing just the pair of Leafs goals, as they entered the third period with a one-goal deficit. However, even if their run ends in this upcoming round against a more seasoned Lightning team that led the East practically all season, the Bruins have achieved everything anyone could have reasonably expected them to achieve when they opened the season by shocking the defending Western Conference-champion Nashville Predators or after they opened the postseason by outscoring Toronto 12-4 through the first two games of the first-round series. The rookie winger, who failed to connect on a number of chances earlier in the series, fought off Marchand before moving in alone on Rask and beating the Bruins netminder with a slick forehand-backhand move at 6:05.

"These are the moments we hope to be in in the future". It's the most important game of the season, and I didn't show up. "Felt fine. It just seemed like everything I was doing ended up in the back of the net".

This is where the Toronto Maple Leafs try to change the ending.

"This is going to be a tough one to swallow", Gardiner said. I let a lot of people down.

But the Bruins came back once again when Heinen corralled a loose puck in front a beat Andersen at 9:10 to cap stretch of four goals on 11 combined shots. And they lost to a team that aims to win a Stanley Cup this year.
