Maple Leafs' James van Riemsdyk: Lights lamp on power play

Van Riemsdyk scored a power-play goal during a 4-2 victory over Boston in Game 3 on Monday.

The goal was Van Riemsdyk's first of the postseason and ignited the crowd at Air Canada Centre, helping Toronto pull within 2-1 in the opening round series. Van Riemsdyk has been making his presence felt physically thus far, compiling nine hits in his last two games, but has seen his even-strength opportunities limited, as he's playing mainly on the third line with Tyler Bozak and Connor Brown. The 28-year-old has been a mainstay on the first power-play unit, however, averaging an immense 4:03 of playing time.
