1. Sittler’s long pass sent right winger Lanny McDonald down the boards and he beat Bruin goalie Dave Reece with a scorching angle shot. 1 assist.

3. A brilliant rush by defenceman Borje Salming down the boards into the Bruin end led to a pass-out, which Sittler batted out of the air into the net. 1 goal, 2 assists.
4. Four seconds into a Leaf power play, Sittler won a faceoff draw from Gregg Sheppard and fed the puck to Salming at the point for a scoring slap shot. 1 goal, 3 assists.
5. Sittler intercepted a pass in the centre zone, skated across the Bruin line and drove a 50-foot shot through Reece’s pads. 2 goals, 3 assists.
