It was a perfect ending to a great night for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Holding on to a one-goal lead late in third period, Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk put the finishing touches on a beautiful goal, which sealed the 4-2 Toronto victory.

Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski weaved his way through two Bruin defenders before sliding a pass to van Riemsdyk.

The winger, who celebrated his 24th birthday Saturday night, briefly lost control of the puck but quickly turned and directed the puck off the right skate of goalie Tuukka Rask and into the net.
