Despite looking very rusty at times after nearly a week off, the Bruins were able to out-gun the Maple Leafs 7-5. Chuck Kobasew, Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi (2 goals), Shawn Thornton, David Krejci, and Blake Wheeler all found the back of the net tonight. Nikolai kulemin, John Mitchell, Alexei Ponikarovsky (2 goals), and Niklas hagman were the goal scorers for the Leafs.
I didn't want to write a complete recap and I doubt you wanted to read my description of all 12 goals either. I decided to do something different tonight*.
*By different, I mean lazy and uninspired
