BOSTON - It started out as one game to win for the Maple Leafs and ended up as one goal to score. Winner take all.

A heartbreaking defeat for a team that deserved better.

A playoff series lost that was so close to being theirs.

The most memorable, most exciting Maple Leafs season in almost a decade, now over.

It was one shot. One bounce. One mistake. And so difficult this soon to comprehend.

The Leafs, who rose to so many of the occasions of the series, were good enough to win 50 minutes Monday night, just not the final 16 minutes and five seconds played.
