The Toronto Maple Leafs looked assured of advancing to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs after taking a three-goal lead against the Bruins in the third period of Monday’s Game 7. Somehow, they didn’t.
The city’s first playoff team in nine years is instead heading home after losing 5-4 to the Bruins in overtime, thanks to four unanswered Boston goals. Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer made 30 saves and played well, but he couldn’t hold down the fort during a frantic final minute that gave the B’s new life.
Instead of gearing up for their next game, Toronto fans are now left figuring out how it all went wrong, and the Toronto Sun isn’t pulling any punches in its analysis of the team’s “epic collapse.” Check out what the Sun is splashing on the front page of its sports section on Tuesday below.
