Auston Matthews ''His Balls Line'' Saturday night

AUSTON MATTHEWS PUTS ''HIS BALLS ON THE LINE'' SATURDAY NIGHT

MAY 13, 2022  (10H42)      S. HARPER
The Toronto Maple Leafs went into Tampa looking to do something they haven't done since 2004 and that's win a playoff series. They had a golden opportunity leading the series 3-2 over the two time defending Stanley Cup champions Tampa Bay Lightning.

But unfortunately if your a Leafs fan you know what happened, the Leafs would give up the 3-2 lead with a 3rd period power play goal from Nikita Kucherov.

This one would go to Overtime and Brayden Point would score 18:03 into Overtime forcing game 7 in Toronto Saturday night.

The Leafs haven't won a playoff series since 2004 and are 0-9 during the Matthews/Marner in ''close-out'' games but that doesn't seem to bother Leafs super star Auston Matthews who had his game-face on speaking with the media after the game saying,

"We've got to go out their and put our balls on the line and go for it." - Auston Matthews

Jokes aside the Leafs have one last shot to do something special with the lineup they have or changes will likely come.
