Come 9:50 p.m. or so tonight, it will be viewed as either having been a huge advantage or as one of the many reasons as to why a series collapse occurred. The Bruins were stuck in Toronto overnight following Game 6 Sunday night into Monday morning as their team plane suffered a malfunction. Instead of landing in Boston like the Maple Leafs in the early hours of Monday, the Bruins spent an extra night in a Toronto hotel. Game 7 is Monday night in Boston at TD Garden at 7 p.m..

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

 The plane issue is sure to get some players out of their routine but other players likely welcomed the relatively normal sleeping hours they received Sunday night in Toronto.

The Bruins reportedly landed in Boston around 10 a.m. Monday.
