Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - The Toronto Maple Leafs' first home playoff win since 2004 couldn't have come at a better time.

Phil Kessel's goal at the 8:59 mark of the third period proved to be the difference, as the Maple Leafs took down the Boston Bruins, 2-1, on Sunday to force a decisive Game 7 in this Eastern Conference quarterfinal series.

Dion Phaneuf also lit the lamp in the final frame for Toronto, which stayed alive in this series for a second straight game after recording a 2-1 victory in Game 5 on Friday.
