On Monday night, thousands who gathered in Maple Leaf Square thought the Toronto Maple Leafs had Game 7 in the bag. That was until the Boston Bruins became the first team in NHL history to win a Game 7 after trailing by at least three goals in the third period. "Stunned" doesn't do it justice.

Ecstasy quickly became agony, and YouTuber ‘Averagegamercabby’ captured it brilliantly on video during the game. Here’s how the crowd reacted to Patrice Bergeron’s tying goal at 19:09 of the third (around the 4:50 mark):

Here’s the stunned reaction from the crowd when Bergeron won the game at 6:05 of overtime; watch its hasty departure as well (goal is around the 2:50 mark):

Now, do yourself a favor and read Bruce Arthur’s incredible column on Game 7, which is twice as emotional as any moving image you just watched here.
