Game Day Report: Stanley Cup Playoff Edition – Game 5
The Leafs take on the Bruins tonight in Game 5 of their 1st Round Stanley Cup Playoff match up back in Boston. The series has now changed to a best 2 out of 3 with the Bruins regaining home ice advantage.
No line up changes for the Leafs who were slow out of the gate in Game 4. They are going to have to learn to start on time and work for everything if they are to be successful in these Playoffs.
Sean Kuraly returns from a broken hand and will replace Joakim Nordstrom in the Bruins lineup.
Congratulations to Jake Muzzin and his wife on the arrival of their new baby.
