SMJ Cup Playoffs


Leafs Move On



5 3


Toronto Wins Series 4-2

The Toronto Maple Leafs are off to the Wales Conference finals. They made that emphatically clear early in this game, not letting the Flyers gain any momentum from their Game #5 victory.  Toronto set an NFHL record with 3 goals in 9 seconds in the first 5 minutes of the game, then got a Glenn Anderson goal to close out the first period with a 4-0 lead. Philly got a bit closer with 2 goals in the 2nd period thanks to Ville Siren and Hakan Loob, but Shawn Burr got one of those back to make it 5-2 heading into the 3rd period.  Pierre Turgeon scored his 1st of the playoffs in the 3rd period but that is the last of the scoring for the Flyers for this season.  They will now join 20 other teams on the golf course and watch the final four go at it for NFHL superiority.  Toronto will head home and get ready for the Buffalo Sabres.
