On the game’s first shift, the Leafs had a chance to score on Crawford. Tyler Bozak had van Riemsdyk on a 2-on-1 break but waited too long, and Seabrook slid in the way of the pass to break it up.
Less than a minute later, Trevor van Riemsdyk, playing older brother James in a regulation game for the first time, got a shot on net after a drop pass from Patrick Kane. Reimer made the save to keep it scoreless.MORE NEWS: Family Of Girl Who Died At Age 11 Finds Her Headstone Overturned And Damaged At Cemetery In Hillside
