Nylander scores twice as Maple Leafs beat Bruins to force Game 7

William Nylander scored twice, Joseph Woll made 22 saves, and Morgan Rielly had two assists as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Boston Bruins 2-1, forcing a Game 7 in their first-round series. Toronto, trailing 3-1, won two consecutive games, including an overtime victory in Game 5. The Bruins, led by Jeremy Swayman’s 24 saves, faced a 3-1 deficit for the second time in the playoffs after losing to the Florida Panthers in last year’s first round. Despite missing Auston Matthews for two games, the Leafs rallied to tie the series. The winner of this series will face the well-rested Florida Panthers in the second round. Nylander scored late in the second period to break the deadlock, followed by another goal in the final minutes. Morgan Geekie scored for the Bruins with 0.1 seconds remaining. Toronto’s penalty kill, criticized in previous games, held firm, allowing Nylander to seal the victory.
