Bruins and Leafs will play Game 7

       TORONTO (AP) _ Captain Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel scored third-period goals and the Toronto Maple Leafs edged the Boston Bruins 2-1 Sunday to send their playoff series back to Boston for Game 7.
        Game 7 is Monday night in Boston.
        Not only did the win keep the Leafs alive, it snapped a 54-year run of home playoff failures against the Bruins.         Toronto's previous home playoff win against Boston was March 31, 1959, when the Leafs won 3-2 in overtime. Nine straight postseason home losses followed in the decades since.
        Milan Lucic scored for Boston with 26 seconds left in the third.
        The only time Toronto has come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a series was the 1942 Stanley Cup finals against the Detroit Red Wings. The Leafs trailed 3-0 in that series before reeling off four straight wins.
        Toronto's last Game 7 win was in 2004 _ the last time the Leafs made the playoffs _ when it beat Ottawa 4-1 to wrap up a first-round series.
