"The Toronto Maple Leafs are in Boston for what's going to be a legendary Game 7 tonight against the Bruins at TD Garden. The Leafs' have decided not to practice and rest up and stay focused for the huge game while the Bruins are complaining to the NHL. Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy revealed to reporters that he's launched a complaint about the Leafs and has spoken to officiating supervisors ahead of Game 7. «I just find their skates bump the back of ours a lot, whether that's just dumb luck or how they battle for pucks,» Cassidy said after practice at Warrior Ice Arena Monday. «We've brought it up with the supervisor, if you see a few of them. There's a couple things we find Toronto does that we've brought up, that's why they're [the supervisors] here, that's what they ask for — anything you see.«I'm sure Toronto brings things up with us. We'll see where it goes. I noticed there was one on the faceoff, [Sean] Kuraly went down from behind. There's been a few of them every game. It started with the [Jake] DeBrusk battle [in Game 2] but I don't know if I'd call it a slew-foot.
«I'd just call it feet contacting feet, whether it's by accident or by design I don't know. I don't want to speculate.»Sounds like the Bruins are trying to get into the officials heads before Game 7.
