Final: Bruins 5, Maple Leafs 4

All done in Toronto. Marty Turco joining team on flight back to Boston. Must clear waivers at noon on Wednesday.

15:40 3d period: Bruins 5-4
Tim Thomas gloves Dion Phaneuf’s shot. Bruins need Thomas to be Thomas here.

13:13 3d period: Bruins 5-4
Mikhail Grabovski on two-on-one rush. Makes no mistake. Looked like bad line change by Bruins.

8:37 3d period: Bruins 5-3
Great SH chance for Nikolai Kulemin. Tim Thomas comes up big.

5:21 3d period: Bruins 5-3
Mikhail Grabovski with a chance. Tim Thomas with a pad stop. Tougher save than it looked like.

2:39 3d period: Bruins 5-3
Another golden chance for Milan Lucic in front. No luck for Lucic.


0:57 3d period: Bruins 5-3
Layup for Milan Lucic in front. Can’t get blade on puck.

20:00 2d period: Bruins 5-3
At end, brief scrap between Brad Marchand and Tim Connolly. Quick takedown for Connolly. Bruins with rare lead after 40 minutes.

19:46 2d period: Bruins 5-3
Goalie top necessity for Leafs. Jonas Gustavsson not ace material.

16:09 2d period: Bruins 5-3
Tyler Seguin raps a half-slapper past Jonas Gustavsson. Softie. Gustavsson leaning wrong way.

13:34 2d period: Bruins 4-3
Jordan Caron buries a Zdeno Chara dish. Sweet cross-crease feed from Chara to back post. Slam dunk of a goal for Caron.

9:52 2d period: 3-3
Tim Thomas gets most of Phil Kessel’s shot. But dribbles over line before Thomas can squeeze it shut. Thomas has to keep that one from going over line.

9:35 2d period: Bruins 3-2
Toronto timeout. Critical kill.

8:56 2d period: Bruins 3-2
Tripping on Patrice Bergeron. Two-man advantage for 1:40.

8:36 2d period: Bruins 3-2
Dennis Seidenberg vs. Colby Armstrong. Seidenberg doesn’t like Armstrong hit. Adam McQuaid tries to jump in, but Seidenberg fights his own fight. Sends Armstrong off to the room dripping blood.

2:45 2d period: Bruins 3-2
Off the draw, Shawn Thornton vs. Jay Rosehill. Rosehill starts strong, Thornton better in end. Gutsy fight for Thornton, whose forehead is still showing marks of Eric Boulton’s fists.


2:43 2d period: Bruins 3-2
Power move by Jordan Caron to take puck to net. Denied, but Chris Kelly scores on rebound.

2:02 2d period: 2-2
Zdeno Chara with a nice-looking goal. Takes a pass from David Krejci, blows past Phil Kessel, goes high glove on Jonas Gustavsson. Dangle, dangle.

0:57 2d period: Leafs 2-1
Tim Thomas stops first shot from left circle. But kicks rebound to stick of John-Michael Liles. Layup.

0:31 2d period: 1-1
Brad Marchand off for hooking. First PP of the night.

20:00 1st period: 1-1
Tyler Seguin hits post in final 10 seconds. Bruins with 11-7 shot advantage.

15:55 1st period: 1-1
Brad Marchand and Mike Komisarek having a chat. Neither would win popularity contest.

14:37 1st period: 1-1
TV timeout. Thank goodness. Can catch a breath between swearing.

13:58 1st period: 1-1
Apologies for the slow start here. IT issues. Jordan Caron ties it up. How did that happen? Didn’t see. Too busy cursing the computer.

10:48 1st period: Leafs 1-0
Jordan Caron goes wide left. Good shift for Caron.

3:01 1st period: Leafs 1-0
Carl Gunnarson with the point shot. Traffic in front keeps Tim Thomas from getting bead on shot. Greg Zanon tangling with a Toronto forward in front. Again, playing from behind.

0:00 1st period: 0-0
No lineup changes for Bruins. Mike Mottau healthy scratch.
