Few issues are much less protected than a Toronto Maple Leafs multiple-goal lead.
Boston Bruins followers would be the first to let you know that.
The Colorado Avalanche on Saturday evening trailed the Maple Leafs 3-1 after the primary interval. Toronto scored the primary objective of the second interval to go forward 4-1 earlier than the Avs ripped off 4 straight targets, together with the extra time winner, to beat the Maple Leafs.
It was paying homage to the Bruins’ iconic comeback in Recreation 7 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs first spherical. Down 4-1 within the third interval, the Bruins scored three targets within the remaining 10:42 to power extra time, the place Patrice Bergeron scored the series-clinching objective.
Milan Lucic was on that workforce, and the Calgary Flames winger couldn’t help but make light of the Leafs’ newest meltdown on Instagram.
Whereas the Avs’ comeback in opposition to Toronto isn’t fairly to the extent of Boston’s — thanks each to the time wanted to tug off the comeback and the stage of the sport — hockey followers (and gamers, apparently) undoubtedly relish the chance to bop on the Leafs’ grave.
