Viral reaction: This Leafs fan is the happiest in the world
< /p> UPDATE DAY
Will the Toronto Maple Leafs finally win a playoff round? For the team's most staunch and patient fans, Monday night's victory looked like a Stanley Cup.
The Queen City squad pulled off the improbable by returning from the guard to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in overtime to take a 3-1 lead in their first-round series.

At Amalie Arena of Tampa, a man wearing an Auston Matthews jersey was obviously having a lot of fun kicking out after winning his favorites. Captured by multiple television cameras, the fan has gone viral for his emotional reaction.
This person will definitely have to be watched on Thursday, when head coach Sheldon Keefe's squad gets a chance to eliminate the “Bolts” in Toronto. The Leafs haven't won a series since 2004.

But it's not over yet… just remember the first round of 2021 , when the Montreal Canadiens came back up after being down three games to one.
