Maple Leafs have chance to close out series

Maple Leafs have chance to close out series

Way back in April 2004, Golden Knights hypeman Lil Jon was still an Atlanta Thrashers fan, Hellboy was in theatres, and 14-year-old kids weren't even born yet.

Through five postseason games to date, the Leafs and Bruins have an identical goals-against average at 2.80, while Toronto is giving up 35 shots on goal per game compared to 33.4 by the Bruins. The under is 7-2 in Maple Leafs last 9 overall.

"Well, you don't sit back, that's for sure. You go after it", said Jake Muzzin of the Leafs' approach to Game 6, after their optional practice on Saturday. We have to be just as desperate and hungry. The Maple Leafs have gone 24-19 here at home and they have averaged 3.56 gpg and have allowed 3.05 gpg in those games. We have to go out there, play well and execute at a high level and lay it all out there. Game 6 is set for Sunday at Scotiabank Arena.

In both Wednesday and Friday's games, Zach Hyman skated gingerly to the Leafs' bench and was bent over wincing in obvious pain.

The top-line left winger has played a critical shutdown role in this series, matching up against the Bruins' top line and operating as a key cog on the penalty kill.

"Clearly interferes with Tuukka", the Bruins coach said.

Hyman is battling through something but will dress in Game 6, Babcock assured. Per to the National Hockey League, the victor of Game 5 owns an all-time series record of 205-55 (78.8%) when a best-of-seven series is tied 2-2. "I really believe that if you prepare and you go through the process right it gives you every chance and that's all you can ask for". "We're considering [Kuhlman]. Certainly, he's played well for us and he adds an element of speed and responsibility". It makes the game more fun.

Boston failed to convert on its three power plays, and Toronto was 0 for 1.

"It's obviously really important to hone in that defensive aspect because you have the puck more".

Much of the Garden thought David Krejci had put the Bruins ahead when his wrist shot got by Frederik Anderson, but it caught the bottom of the crossbar and landed in front of the goal line and was cleared away.

"I don't want to jinx it, I don't want to say we're going to win game six and it not happen, so I'm just going for that, I hope the boys can pull it out, but it looks pretty good", says Leafs fan Michael DeCoste.

Don't ask Zdeno Chara to break down the Blues-Jets series. "Guess if I just fell on my ass there it might have been a different story, but, yeah, tough".

"Maybe there's too much thinking and not enough freaking playing". "Neither team has been able to win back-to-back games in the series though, so obviously that makes tomorrow's game a big one for us".

Is eight hours a must?

"I'm not talking about that, guys". Toronto looks to become the fourth.
