Boston Bruins Trip Home Delayed Because of Airplane Malfunction


The Boston Bruins had a chance to end their series against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday, but they were unable to do so and a Game 7 was forced and scheduled for Monday evening. Unfortunately for the Bruins, their travel plans back to Boston for the final game of the series were changed after a plane malfunction led to the team being forced to stay in Toronto and wait until Monday morning to travel back home.

Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli released a statement on the situation through the team’s official website:

“Late during tonight’s game we were made aware that there was a malfunction with our airplane. As a result we are staying in Toronto on Sunday night and the team will travel to Boston on Monday morning.”

The Maple Leafs and Bruins are set to drop the puck at 7:00 p.m. ET at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.
