Days of Y'Orr:
Toronto Maple Leafs
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAYS TO OUR MOMS AND ALL OUR READERS WHO ARE MOMS.
You would think that travel alone would have motivated the Bruins to not play today. One would have thought that winning on Friday and taking a weekend off to rest would have this team play their best on Game 5. One would think that you would want to close out your opponent as quickly as possible.
And then you come to the realization that the Boston Bruins clearly don't care about any of that.
What a disgraceful game we saw on Friday. It was so bad, Jon didn't write a recap because he was violently throwing up everywhere when trying to put words together to describe that abortion on ice.
So Boston has given new life to the Toronto Maple Leafs by giving them another breath in this series. I'll go out on a limb and say that if Toronto wins today, this one is over. Boston has been horrible in back-to-back games this season and I believe that tomorrow would be no different.
BEST OF MAXIM
Toronto Maple Leafs fans taunted Boston Bruins center Tyler Seguin in the third period of Sunday night's 2-1 victory in Game 6 at the Air Canada Centre, which forced a winner-take-all Game 7 on Monday night.
Seguin does not have a point in the first six games of the series, and Leafs fans taunted him with the chant of "Thank you, Seguin!"

Scary stuff right here. You are looking at the CAT scan of Leafs’ defenseman Mark Fraser’s skull after he took a Milan Lucic shot off the head in Game Four.
Fraser was able to leave under his own power thank god. He had surgery to repair a fracture between his eyes and the cranial area.
This just tells you that hockey players are the toughest athletes on the planet.
BOSTON — The Bruins’ line of Patrice Bergeron, Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand was the club’s best for much of the regular season. However, since the playoffs began, that trio has gone cold.
And as the Bruins find themselves heading to Game 6 in Toronto on Sunday night, it’s about time that line gets heated up again. If they don’t, it could be a big reason the B’s have...
It took more than 50 minutes for the Bruins to give their fans something to cheer about, but when Zdeno Chara beat Toronto goalie James Reimer with a wrister midway through the third period, the TD Garden crowd allowed itself a moment of hope.
Unfortunately for the black and gold-clad fans, Chara’s goal was all the Bruins could muster in a 2-1 loss to the Maple Leafs in Game 5...
Let the movement begin. Bruins fans need to UNITE against the DREADED seventh game because….
They are hazardous to your health.
They are sixty minutes of PURE HELL and if they go to OT, the devil will laugh as he waits for your burning soul.
The hospitals in New England will be flooded with Bruins fans suffering from heart issues, high blood pressure, ulcers and heartburn from...
Nazem Kadri celebrates with teammates- (Chris Young/ Canadian Press) BOSTON— For the Bruins, last night’s goal was simple. If they won Game 5 in front of the home fans, they would be moving on to the next round. That was in stark contrast to the goal of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Prior to last night’s game, they were holding on for their dear hockey lives. A loss would send...
What the HELL happened to you? What happened to the team with heart and desire? What happened to the team that gave their all? What happened to the team that gave EVERYTHING on the ice no matter what? Did that team get replaced during the lockout?
The Bruins have been absolutely DISGUSTING this series. If the Bruins had someone like Fleury instead of Rask they...
First off, I am a Tyler Seguin supporter or a “Seguinista” since he was number two overall in the 2010 NHL draft. With that being said, I am not going to tell you his performance in the playoffs this season has not been a disappointment.
He has relied on one offensive move and is not burying his chances. It is maddening.
However, he is battling his ass off for...
The Bruins have a very unique style of play, and it becomes even more pronounced in the playoffs. They’re not a team that’s going to get into a fire-wagon race up and down the ice with opponents. Instead, they’re more likely to out-physical whoever’s in their way, ultimately finding a way to win thanks to gritty heroics.
That’s proving to be a difficult recipe for success...
The Bruins have to score. That’s it — the simple answer.
They trail by one goal heading into what could be the final 20 minutes of their season, so they have no choice. They must score, at least once, while making sure the Maple Leafs don’t. The physical play has reached a fever pitch, but the B’s don’t have time to settle their scores with fists. They have to use their...
The Bruins have no one to blame but themselves, and if they don’t figure it out quickly — in less than 24 hours — their season will be over.
The B’s played an inexplicably ugly game Sunday night in Game 6 against the Maple Leafs, and Toronto took full advantage of it. The Leafs won the do-or-die affair 2-1, and they have forced Game 7 on Monday night back in Boston.
Everything’s bigger in a Game 7. The stage, the hits, the highs and lows … everything.
The Bruins and Maple Leafs are proving that on Monday night, after a frantic period that has already seen more momentum swings than many fans were probably hoping for — but knew were coming nonetheless. That’s just how these things work, no matter how many times you’ve been through it...
I have a bad feeling. I’ve seen this act before. Back in the 2010 SCP when the Boston Bruins were up 3-1 on the Philadelphia Flyers only to lose three games in a row and the series 4-3.
Steve Simmons, Toronto Sun – But everything is tilting in their direction.
All the momentum - if there is such a thing at playoff time - favours the Leafs.
All the pressure - if that...
Check out this amazing save by Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer on Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton. This is just how the last three games have gone for the Boston Bruins. Can't get a goal when they need one. Not burying the chances when they are presented to them.
(Welcome to the TD Garden for tonight's decisive Game 7 showdown between the Boston Bruins and visiting Toronto Maple Leafs...)
Anybody that tells you that a Game 7 is fun is absolutely out of their tree. It's a crippling sickness that leaves you incapable of thinking of anything else besides hockey. You don't enjoy the sun, you don't enjoy beverages, you don&...
