Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel got the goals but James Reimer's netminding stood out most in the Toronto Maple Leafs' 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference quarter-final on Sunday. 

Toronto Maple Leafs 2, Boston Bruins 1

On-Ice: This series has been thrilling. Both teams have been playing with levels of perfection and imperfection, a lethal combination that is driving fans crazy. Heading into the playoffs, much was made of James Reimer's lack of playoff experience. For a goalie who was supposed to be the Achilles' heel of the Maple Leafs, he's turned out to be the backbone, taking this series to Game 7 (CBC, CBCSports.ca, 7 p.m. ET).

Off-Ice: Milla Jovovich was at Game 6. I know she's best known for fighting and killing really freaky things that give me nightmares. But nothing -- and I mean nothing -- beats Dazed and Confused.

New York Rangers 1, Washington Capitals 0

On-Ice: Game 6 was a goaltending clinic. Braden Holtby and Henrik Lundqvist made huge saves to keep it scoreless after the first period. The one shot that got past Holtby, he was screened by the big body of Rick Nash, who was originally credited with the goal. Video review showed he didn't touch it and that it belonged to Derick Brassard. While Brassard leads all players in this series with seven points, Nash is still looking for his first goal of the playoffs.

Off-Ice: The Rangers are 0-5 lifetime in Game 7s on the road. Their last Game 7 loss? In 2009, against the Capitals. Alex Ovechkin has now been held pointless in four straight games. What the what?!? 

Detroit Red Wings 3, Anaheim Ducks 2

On-Ice: How do you like them apples? The Red Wings looked like a team whose 21-year playoff appearance streak was about to end and, voila, they move on to the next round. A fantastic series that saw incredible comebacks and four overtimes. Man oh man, I hope we haven't seen the last of Teemu Selanne.

Off-Ice: Wanna know what's not happy about the Red Wings moving on? Octopi.
