[Thursday LL] Bruins Stand Between Leafs and Playoffs

Kulemin Truculence. What a picture. What a hit. - Jared Wickerham

Well, not really "stand" so much as "skate around in the Leafs' zone."

The big bad Bruins come to town and try to finish off the Leafs' playoff hopes. Expect a lot of lazy writers to tie this to a metaphor about single-game playoff elimination, as if game 78 is the same as game 7. Puck drop is at 7:30 Eastern, let's hope it's a watchable game at least.
