Game 4 between the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs came down to overtime, and who else but David Krejci would end it in extra time? He scored his third goal of the game and Tuukka Rask made 38 saves as the Bruins took a commanding 3-1 series lead with the win.
Joffrey Lupul scored early in the first period on a spectacular pass from Phil Kessel, and James Reimer looked good early. Defenseman Cody Franson scored with less than a minute remaining to give the Leafs a 2-0 lead.
David Krejci scored twice in the second before Clarke MacArthur responded to tie things up. There was no scoring in the third period, as this one seemed fated to go to the extra period.
After a stingy few periods of play, things really opened up in OT. The two teams traded chances, with Rask and the Bruins weathering an early push by the Leafs. Krejci ended up with the puck on his stick on a two-on-one and made no mistake with it.
Toronto now heads back to Boston in a deep hole that will be nearly impossible to climb out of given the playoff experience up and down the roster of the Bruins. They gave it the good ol' college try in Game 4, but just didn't quite have enough firepower to keep up with Boston's top line.
FINAL SCORE: Toronto Maple Leafs - 3 Boston Bruins - 4
