TORONTO - As Randy Carlyle said, when the shots on goal are 33-13 in favour of the opposition, “I don’t think you can say that was your game plan.”

Not that there was any thought of declining two of the most-important points the Leafs might gather this season, however.

The shots were just part of the story of a game that became a little too entertaining for its own good, but was ultimately gratifying for the Leafs as they finally ended the eight-game losing streak to their division rival Boston Bruins.
