Leafs centre Bozak says he's ready to play in Game 1 against Bruins

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs received some encouraging news the day before they opened up their first playoff series in nine years.

First-line centre Tyler Bozak went through a full practice today and both he and head coach Randy Carlyle expect him to suit up for tomorrow night's game against the Bruins in Boston.

Bozak missed the last two games of the regular season with an upper-body injury.

He skated with the team yesterday but left practice early.

Bozak had 12 goals and 16 assists in 46 games this regular season.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
