Game 47 - Leafs 3, New Jersey 2 - Shootout settles close game for the Leafs

Coming in on a four game losing streak, Toronto managed to snap it hosting New Jersey, prevailing in the shootout, just as they did in the first game. Just like in that game, the two teams combined to go 1-for-6 in the shootout, with James Van Riemsdyk supplying the only goal each time.

Toronto played it tight early in the first, outchanced 3-1 in the first half, but came on strongly in the last 6 minutes, including a goal from Tyler Bozak to give them a lead on the scoreboard, to compliment a 7-4 lead in chances. Special teams defined the middle period, with the Devils getting ahead early on a Henrique goal, with Toronto answering through JVR, a lead that lasted less than 30 seconds. The Leafs could have been ahead again later in the frame, but a bizzare goalie interference call against Van Riemsdyk negated what looked like a perfectly good goal by Bozak. The Devils won the period in ES chances, but the time with the extra man meant that the two teams were level in the frame.

Toronto had a number of chances in the first part of the third, but did very little in an unadventurous last ten minutes, with just one ES chance between the two teams. New Jersey bossed the overtime period, something that hasn't usually been the case, as the Leafs have been good in overtime this year.

New Jersey narrowly took the game in ES chances, but that was on the back of overtime, as Toronto won 5-on-5 chances by one. In all, a pretty even game that probably deserved to be settled by a shootout.

The top line was excellent, with JVR and Kessel leading the team with +4s, and Kessel on ice for a team-high eight chances for. In sharp contrast, the second line was badly outplayed, Lupul a game-worst -5 and Kadri just ahead of him at -4.

Phaneuf was the only defenseman that stood out from the pack, at a -3; every other defender was between -1 and 1. This included a +1 Franson, who snapped a 7-game streak of being on for more chances against than for.
