Adding insult to the injury of losing Game 6 by a 2-1 score to the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre, the Bruins will be stuck in Toronto on Sunday night after developing mechanical trouble with the jet they charter. They will instead remain at the Toronto Four Seasons, where they’ve stayed throughout the series, then head back to Boston on Monday morning with Game 7 on tap for that evening at TD Garden.

That’s really the final kick to the gut after the Bruins were outplayed on the ice by the Maple Leafs with a chance to close them out holding a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven playoff series.

"Late during tonight's game we were made aware that there was a malfunction with our airplane,” said Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli in a prepared statement. “As a result we are staying in Toronto on Sunday night and the team will travel to Boston on Monday morning."

The Bruins won’t be as well rested traveling on the same day they’re scheduled to play for their postseason lives. On the plus side, the Bruins won’t have to deal with the punishing headlines and angry sports radio chatter that will surely fill the Boston airwaves from now until the Bruins and Leafs drop the puck for the decisive Game 7 on Monday night.
