Game 7’s last night were a combination of Greatest comeback of all-time and a total snooze fest.

Boston Bruins-5 Toronto Maple Leafs-4 OT (Bruins win series 4-3)

Depending where you are from this is either one of the greatest comebacks of all-time or one of the biggest chokes of all-time. The Bruins overcome a 4-1 deficit in the third period to survive and advance to the next round while the Maple Leafs squander a great chance to make it to the Conference semi-finals.
