Down 4-2 with 2:14 left in the game, Bruins forward David Krejci faked a shot from the point and sent a slap pass to David Pastrnak hiding out on the wing.

The Leafs would go on to win Game Three at home and narrow Boston’s series lead to 2-1.
Auston Matthews would score his first goal of the postseason in front of his parents at Air Canada Centre.
Also, this happened:
