Toronto Maple Leafs secured themselves a spot in tonight’s Game 7, after beating Boston 2-1 during game 6. The bad luck continued for the Bruins as they were stranded in Toronto on Sunday evening. The team returned home this morning and will aim to find a way to persevere in a series that should have been a “lock”.
Statement from Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli: “Late during tonight’s game we were made aware that there was a malfunction with our airplane. As a result we are staying in Toronto on Sunday night and the team will travel to Boston on Monday morning.”
No strangers to rising above Game 7 elimination, the Bruins will hope to best the Leafs and advance another round in the quest for the Cup. Puck drops at 7 p.m.
