It's ten minutes into the second period at the Xcel Energy Centre in Minnesota. The Toronto Maple Leafs are trying to win just their third game in their last eight showings, and at this point, things could go either way as the game has yet to see its first goal.

Suddenly, Phil Kessel goes to support Roman Polak in a board battle, and while he thinks he's come out with the puck, he's actually done more harm than good. Nino Niederreiter strips it off of Kessel and chips it in, allowing Charlie Coyle to pick the puck up. Coyle throws it to the front of the net, Jared Spurgeon is there to redirect it in with his skate the puck goes past Jonathan Bernier to put Minnesota in the lead.
