The Boston Bruins were dealt a tough loss Monday night at Scotiabank Arena against the Toronto Maple Leafs, but it could have been much worse had it not been for Jaroslav Halak.

The Bruins netminder turned away 27 shots in Boston’s 4-2 loss to the Leafs, making plenty big saves throughout the contest.

After the game, he credited his team for battling hard, especially in the second period.
