This Isn’t Junior Hockey, Leafs Win Game 6

May 2, 2024

Hello old friend, Game 7, we meet again, why? Well, because the Leafs won game 6, 2-1 over the Boston Bruins to force a deciding game 7 on Saturday in Boston.

This game had everything from close calls to robberies and some questionable hits, but hey that is playoff hockey. The Maple Leafs minus Mitch Marner were flying all night long. Hell, Connor Dewar was a name mentioned numerous times on the broadcast and was a force tonight.

For the second game in a row, however, it was goaltender Joseph Woll who was the straw that stirred the drink tonight. Once again he was making save after save and not allowing a single moment of play to phase him again in front of the Scotiabank Arena faithful.

The first 38 minutes of the game went scoreless as with 55 seconds left in the second period, William Nylander found a spot, shot the puck and it went off Charlie McAvoy and went into the back of the net to give the Leafs a 1-0 lead.


Here is the Joe Bowen call, why? because WHY NOT.

The third period was filled with more drama, mainly caused because Toronto parked the bus and was trying to wait out the clock to 0:00.

William Nylander said no thanks, this isn’t junior hockey, goes down the ice and beats Jeremy Swayman, 2-0 Maple Leafs.

Once again, here is Joe Bowen with the radio call.

Now, Morgan Geekie scored with 0.1 to ruin the shutout, but regardless. Game 7. Leafs fans we’ve been here before, it’s been 20 years since the Maple Leafs won a game 7. You are already a betting underdog, so shock the world. Prove everyone wrong, if you do the sky is the limit, if not well that is why you blow up the core for. Regardless Saturday night is a hockey game you won’t want to miss. See you then.

Hi, my name is Griff and I'm a complete sports nut. I love to play sports, watch sports and most importantly bet on sports too. If I'm not watching or betting on sports, you can find me on the golf course, between the pipes as your average beer league goaltender. Although sports take up most of my life, I also love spending time with my two dogs, streaming usually a 90's Simpson's or attempting to read more books.
