Airplane trouble keeps Bruins in Toronto
The Bruins were forced to stay in Toronto due to a mechanical issue with their airplane.

As if a disappointing 2-1 loss in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Toronto Maple Leafs wasn’t enough, the Boston Bruins received more bad news Sunday night.

Hoping to be able to sleep in their own beds before Monday’s Game 7 at TD Garden, the Bruins were forced to stay in Toronto due to a mechanical issue with their airplane.

"Late during tonight's game we were made aware that there was a malfunction with our airplane,” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement issued by the club. “As a result we are staying in Toronto on Sunday night and the team will travel to Boston on Monday morning."

Monday’s Game 7 is set for 7 p.m. ET (CNBC, CBC, RDS).

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
