TORONTO - The Maple Leafs decided eight is enough.

Not only did they beat their division nemesis for the first time since 2010-11 on Saturday, the 3-2 win guaranteed at least a split in the home and home with the Boston Bruins that swings back to Massachusetts on Monday. Toronto was out-shot 33-13.

With Mats Sundin finally honoured at the ACC after the lockout scrapped November’s NHL’s Hall of Fame Game, the crowd was in the right mood to get behind an upset of Boston.
