Maple Leafs Pay Tribute To Toronto Van Attack Victims

Maple Leafs Pay Tribute To Toronto Van Attack Victims

The Toronto Maple Leafs held a moment of silence ahead of their playoff contest with the Boston Bruins on Monday to honour the victims of the van attack which occurred in the city in the earlier part of the day.

Our organization continuously works in close partnership with Toronto Police Service, and other security agencies, to ensure the safety of all fans attending games at Air Canada Centre, including playoff tailgate events at Maple Leaf Square.

Bergeron missed the Bruins' 3-1 Game 4 victory Thursday with an undisclosed injury.

"We knew we had to steal some games in Boston".

As for Andersen, he surrendered a goal to Jake DeBrusk early in the second period but then buckled down to shut the door. Plekanec then scored into the empty net to give the fans inside and outside the Air Canada Centre some relief.

The first period ended up scoreless, but the Bruins picked up where they left off from the third period of Game 5 by generating the majority of scoring opportunities.

The Toronto Maple Leafs took on the Boston Bruins in the arena just hours after a van rammed into pedestrians, killing 10 people and injuring 16 others.

Both were born at the same hospital, as were William and his younger brother Prince Harry. The baby boy is the royal couple's third child and fifth in line to the British throne.

The Leafs weren't the only sports team to show their support.

"We've been talking about it all along, we're playing a really good team in Boston and this series is fun, it's high-end, there's no room, they've got high-end players", Babcock said.

Following the moment of silence, Martina Ortiz-Luis handled anthem duties - at one point allowing the packed crowd at Air Canada Centre to sing an extended portion of "O, Canada".

"Very tragic event", Bruins forward Brad Marchand said. In the last five minutes, they seemed to be on the ice constantly, shaking off the Leafs' checking attempts. William Nylander, Mitch Marner and Tomas Plekanec scored for the Maple Leafs, who trailed the series 3-1 before winning two straight.

These six forwards tallied a total of just nine shots on goal in Game 6. The puck got between Andersen's legs but hit his skate and bounced behind him but wide of the net. The Bruins challenged for goaltender interference, and the tally was overturned. Boston's Tuukka Rask had 27 saves.

At that point, the Leafs could still say they responded when the Bruins tested them with the first goal, but once again the Bruins took control. It was Marchand of all people, fresh from helping dominate the Leafs in their own zone, who made the critical mistake.
