The Maple Leafs did what they had to do in Game 5 to extend the series. Now that they’re going back to Toronto for Game 6, they’ve got their confidence back.
“We obviously believe in each other and what we can accomplish as a team, but I don’t think we’re ahead of ourselves,” Reimer said. “We’ve still got a long road ahead of us.”
The Leafs still have to win two more games if they’re going to move on in the postseason so mistakes have to be at a minimum. At the very least they’ve made Boston work harder. Brad Marchand was quoted after last night’s game saying, “Maybe we thought it was going to be a little bit easier than it was going to be.”
One more loss and that dream is done for Toronto, but for now, they’ve got some of that swagger back.
