The assist was Krejci's 92nd career playoff point, tying him with Bruins legend Bobby Orr for fifth-most in Boston's postseason history.

Krejci has a chance to move past Phil Esposito for second place on this list by the end of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs, especially if the Bruins make a deep playoff run.

He also moved into a 10th-place tie on the all-time Game 7 scoring list.

The veteran forward has been an underrated playoff performer throughout his career in Boston. He led the entire playoffs in scoring in 2011 and 2013, and the B's went to the Stanley Cup Final in each of those seasons (winning in 2011). 

Krejci tallied five points (two goals, three assists) in seven games against the Leafs in Round 1. He'll again be a crucial part of Boston's offense when its second-round series versus the Columbus Blue Jackets begins Thursday night at the Garden.
