Maple Leafs hang on to beat Boston and force Game 6 in Toronto












BOSTON – Tyler Bozak and Clarke MacArthur scored as the Toronto Maple Leafs stayed alive in the playoffs, hanging on to defeat the Boston Bruins 2-1 Friday night.


Trailing three games to one, the hard-skating Leafs probed the Bruins from all angles to quiet the yellow-and-black crowd of 17,565 – the Bruins’ 156th consecutive sellout. But down 2-0 two minutes into the third period, Boston charged back to threaten the Leafs and pepper James Reimer.


Game 6 is scheduled for Sunday night in Toronto with Game 7, if needed, Monday in Boston.
