TORONTO (AP) Facing elimination, Boston didn't panic when it fell behind halfway through the first period. The Bruins kept their focus, quickly tied it and took the lead, and then held off the Toronto Maple Leafs to force a Game 7 in their first-round playoff series.

Brad Marchand had two goals and an assist as the Bruins beat the Maple Leafs 4-2 on Sunday.

"We just knew there was a lot of game left," Marchand said. "We've come from behind a lot this year. We weren't fazed. We came together, played very hard after that. We played a really good game."
