BOSTON (AP) - The Toronto Maple Leafs are preparing for their first home playoff game in nine years after tying their series with the Boston Bruins.
Toronto won 4-2 on Saturday night after being dominated in the opener 4-1. The Maple Leafs bounced back with hard hitting from the start and goals from their top scorers. Joffrey Lupul had two and Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk had one each.
Bruins coach Claude Julien says he doesn't expect his players to be affected by the loud crowd in Toronto on Monday.
Game 4 is also in Toronto on Wednesday night.
