SALEM, OR–After Boston’s down-to-the-wire loss to 3-seed Rat City last night, they might have been expected to take 10-seed Toronto handily–but C.N. Power had very different plans. They dominated the Massacre in the game’s opening minutes and then settled into a groove of back-and-forth play in which the scoreboard fluctuated with the penalties, as both teams gave up frequent power jams.
