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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
