Maple Leafs Survive Bruins Rally; Force Game 6

The Toronto Maple Leafs had a three-goal lead during the middle of the second period. After that, Toronto got sloppy and took stupid penalties and it allowed the Boston Bruins to get back in the game. The Maple Leafs held on to win Game 5, 4-3 against the Bruins. Boston still leads this series 3-2.

Connor Brown and Andreas Johnson scored goals for Toronto in the first period. David Backes scored a power-play goal in the second-period for Boston. Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk (power play) scored later in the second for the Maple Leafs.

Tuukka Rask was pulled in favor of Anton Khudobin. Rask only made nine saves on 13 shots. Khudobin stopped all eight shots he faced. Putting in Khudobin was a good move for the Bruins. They played with more energy. Sean Kurlay scored a goal later in the second-period for the Bruins.

Noel Acciari scored the lone goal for Boston in the third period. Frederik Andersen made big saves for the Maple Leafs down the stretch and he finished with 42 overall.

The Boston Bruins will most likely start Tuukka Rask in Game 6, but you never know. Game 6 will be on Monday Night in Toronto.
