James van Riemsdyk scores filthy goal to clinch win over Boston Bruins

With three minutes left in the third period, the Toronto Maple Leafs lead had dwindled to just one goal.  Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski set up James van Riemsdyk all alone in front of the net, but JVR didn’t have much room to make a play.  Which worked out just fine because it turns out he didn’t need much.  With his back facing the net, JVR pulled the puck around to his forehand and then as he fell down he tucked the puck in short side off Tuukka Rask’s skate.  This insurance marker gave the Leafs a two-goal lead with little time left, and helped Toronto even the series with the Boston Bruins at one.
