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).

The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
