Toronto Star “For longtime Toronto sports fans, Monday’s heartbreaking 5-4 overtime loss by the Maple Leafs to the Boston Bruins brought back memories of other crushing disappointments in Toronto. Here are five of the most memorable sporting heartbreaks”

Huffington Post “Although the Bruins opened up the scoring at TD Garden, the Leafs would put the next four goals on the board. The scene in Maple Leafs Square was euphoric. With 11 minutes remaining, Toronto held a 4-1 lead and some fans at TD Garden in Boston were heading for the exits.”

Boston Globe “According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Bruins are the first team in NHL history to win a Game 7 after trailing by three goals in the final period. The Bruins’ third and fourth goals came in a span of 31 seconds.”
