Toronto Maple Leafs Hope To Exorcise Game 7 Ghost Against Bruins

Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask

And he pointed out that the enormous interest and support from Maple Leafs fans can occasionally become a burden for players.

Toronto played their hearts out for their city in Game 6 after the tragedy that took place just hours earlier in the city, and won their second straight game to the series the series at three games apiece with a 3-1 victory on home ice. Chara's teams are 4-7 in those games, and the big defenseman has three points, all assists.

"What's interesting is you go through, we're kind of like in the same spot we were last year during the first round [against Washington], and yet our team's way better than last year", said Babcock. He called Game 7 the biggest of his life.

If the seventh and deciding game of an National Hockey League playoff series can be broken down into simple components, then the Toronto Maple Leafs' chances of success Wednesday night ride on two things. The top line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, on fire with 20 combined points in the two wins that started the series, have been scoreless in the last two games (plus Game 3) - Bergeron was out of Game 5 with an upper-body injury and being ineffective in Monday night's game. "They've been here a bunch, so they know what to expect". "Then they won a puck at the net where we're generally good there, but they got it to the net".

Five years ago, the Bruins performed one of the greatest Game 7 comebacks in Stanley Cup playoffs history.

Boston is a veteran team that simply needs to put the last two games in the rear-view mirror and focus on winning a home game to advance.

After a so-so start to the season, the Yankees have now won four out of their last five and it seems they may have found a groove. They also saw their first-inning earned run average climb to 7.41, easily the worst inning for their pitchers before Monday.

To make sure soccer fans don't feel left out, the square will also be showing Toronto FC in their CONCACAF Finals matchup against Chivas Guadalajara. The three Maple Leafs wins came when his save percentage was.952/.933/.970 and the three losses came when his save percentage was.875/.400./857. "We've thought that all along, and we've crawled our way back and now we have the opportunity of a lifetime". "The one thing is, you can't have too much off because the competition and the atmosphere and the adrenaline is so high in these games, you don't want to step completely out of it".

Both teams paid their respects to the victims of the rental van attack in Toronto that killed 10 people and injured 15 more. All of them arrived via Toronto's speed and aggressive mindset entering the offensive zone, and that's something Boston has stifled to a much more effective degree until Saturday night. "The city really comes together", Leafs defenceman Jake Gardiner said Tuesday. Hockey game sevens are usually always well played and often are quite intense throughout. That's what it's all about.

"When the chips are all on the table and it's do-or-die, you go with what you're most comfortable with and what got you here", said Backes.

The Bruins are 13-12 in Game 7s, with a 12-8 record at home. The good news for Toronto: The 28-year-old has been terrific of late.

One no one expected to happen as Boston took a commanding 3 -1 lead in the series.
