05/13/2013 22:25 Bruins pull off remarkable rally to top Leafs in Game 7
Patrice Bergeron tied it with 51 seconds left in regulation then scored the game-winner 6:05 into overtime on Monday night to give Boston a 5-4 victory over the Maple Leafs in Game 7 as the Bruins turned back Toronto's comeback with a rally of their own.
Once upon a time, Cody Franson was a can't miss prospect who had it all -- hockey smarts, booming slap shot and an outstanding first pass. And then along came a trade to Toronto and the bottom just fell out for him. His poor foot speed and questionable gap control were exposed in an up-tempo environment, and he found himself stapled to the bench -- or a healthy scratch -- far too often. Still, he's just 25 and he can resurrect his career ... just not in Toronto. Count on 30-points max in blue and white. Adjust your cheat sheets accordingly. (Updated 8/14/12)
