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 seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
