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 remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
