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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
