Overtime winner puts Boston 3-1 up over the demoralised Maple Leafs.
The Bruins will take a 3-1 playoff series lead over the Maple Leafs back to Boston on Friday after an impressive road win.
David Krejci led by example, scoring a clutch hat-trick, including the overtime winner, in what was an MVP-like performance.
Afterwards, he told ESPN.com that he enjoyed the night.
“I’m just trying to do my best,” Krejci said.
“I know I had a run a couple years ago, but I know I had a bad run, so I’m just trying to play my best, go out there and do my hardest and not worry about the result.”
Toronto had big expectations coming into the series, however all that seems to be in the past as they are staring directly at an early exit this year.
