Maple Leafs' Joffrey Lupul scratched vs. Bruins with lower-body injury

TORONTO - Joffrey Lupul was a late scratch for the Toronto Maple Leafs in another must-win game, this time against the Boston Bruins.

Lupul did not take the ice for pre-game warm-ups, and line rushes included David Clarkson and Jerry D'Amigo sliding around to fill the hole.

It was well-known that right-winger Phil Kessel was dealing with a bruised right foot, but Lupul sitting out came as a surprise.

The 30-year-old has 22 goals and 22 assists this season.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
