Maple Leafs' Bozak scratched with undisclosed injury
Tyler Bozak, the Toronto Maple Leafs' No. 1 center, was a game-time scratch with an undisclosed injury for Game 6 against the Boston Bruins.

TORONTO – Both the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins are without key players for Sunday night's Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series.

Tyler Bozak, Toronto's No. 1 center who normally skates with left wing James van Riemsdyk and left wing Joffrey Lupul, was a game-time scratch with an undisclosed injury. In five playoff games, Bozak has a goal and an assist with four penalty minutes.

Meanwhile, the Bruins are without veteran defenseman Andrew Ference, who remained in Boston, also with an undisclosed injury. Ference is pointless in four games and served a one-game suspension early in the series for elbowing.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
