BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Bruins are 13-and-12 all-time in Game 7's, but that's just history. Right now, B's fans are concerned about the future.
Boston will meet Toronto tonight at 7:30 p.m. for the winner-take-all meeting at the Garden, and Charlie McAvoy and Rick Nash are excited--but not overcome with pressure.
"Trying to downsize it almost," McAvoy said. "This is the game that you love, this is the NHL playoffs. This is what you grow up as a kid dreaming of--playing in that Game 7 game, and making a difference, having an impact. That's my goal tomorrow."
It's why you play this sport, to be in situations like this," Nash said. "It's going to be a challenge, but we're looking forward to it."
B's have played well in the series for the most part, but lost their last two on account of Frederick Andersen's stellar play and a lack of execution.
They'll need more from their top line. Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and David Pastrnak totaled 20 points in a pair of series-opening wins, but the trio's gone scoreless as a unit with a minus-16 rating in three games since. Bergeron missed Game 5.
