Twitter Reaction: Groundhog Day for Maple Leafs, Bruins

The Boston Bruins beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2, forcing game seven in Boston on Tuesday. Brad Marchand scored twice, while Tuukka Rask made 22 saves in the win.

When the Toronto Maple Leafs last found themselves in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the year was 2004, Green Day’s American Idiot occupied the charts, Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman headlined Marvel’s cinematic universe and the NFL’s most discussed scandal involved Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl half-time performance.

To say a lot has changed would be an understatement. But after Sunday’s loss to the Bruins, the Leafs will have to wait at least a couple days longer to add their round two drought to the list of things that are no longer the same.

Following their 4-2 loss, fans took to Twitter to express their feelings heading to another Game 7 in Boston.

While others lamented the Leafs’ inability to get the job done on home ice, finding explanations in a variety of different places.

And, as the dust settled, divergent views of how Tuesday night would play out quickly surfaced.
