Toronto got off on the right foot through Ellis (7) midway through the first period, then, after a fight between Ferguson and Horton, doubled their lead when Armstrong (2) nailed his chance in the second period. Redmond (1) slashed the advantage in half less than three minutes later but Walton (7) restored the two goal cushion late on.
F Mahovlich (4) on the powerplay, completing Walton's three pointer on an assist, and Armstrong (3) with his second of the game sealed a 5-1 Leafs victory. The game ended with another bout between Ferguson and Horton, the former racking up over fifty penalty minutes in eleven playoff games.
