They Played A Game In Toronto Last Night

from Tara Sullivan of the Boston Globe,

A disappointing night for the Bruins.

No doubt about it.

Another chance to close out this opening-round playoff series with the Maple Leafs, another loss, this time by a 3-1 score at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. Series all tied at 3-3 now, so Game 7 here we come, a win-or-go-home showdown Wednesday night at TD Garden for the right to keep on playing for the Stanley Cup.

But at least for a night, let’s refrain from using some of the words often associated with losses like this, words drawn from the outside world and framed over our sporting obsessions, borrowed from lexicons that really don’t belong on fields of play. This was not devastating. It was not a tragedy. It was not a battle waged nor a war lost.
