It is the return to the scene of the crime.
Morally wounded after giving up a 4-1 third-period lead in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Boston Bruins in Beantown last spring, the Toronto Maple Leafs will play their first game at TD Garden since that fateful evening, one that won’t ever be completely forgotten by the players no matter what the result is Saturday night.
To a man, the Leafs shrugged off the return to Boston after Friday night’s 2-1 shootout win over New Jersey.
"I think we’ve moved past that," said star winger Phil Kessel, who notched his 10th goal of the season.
They insist they’ve tried to erase most of those memories from Game 7.
