Only watched the 3rd. period, but I thought goaltending was the difference.
Gardiner skates well, backed the defenders in, and shot the puck for his 1st. goal kind of weak but if you don't shoot you don't score.
Ryan's goal was nice shot, but he had quite a bit of room ... goaltender positioning.
It appeared at times the Leafs defenders were their own worst enemy, not moving the puck when they had the chance, making poor decisions on who to pass to, just not being strong with the puck.
Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
