TORONTO – The Boston Bruins are pumping the tires of Maple Leaf goaltender Freddie Andersen way too much in this first-round series. That’s not to say the Bruins should be going the other way with their comments and giving the opponent bulletin-board material, but there shouldn’t be this much love being spewed.

Truth be told: Andersen has been outstanding the last two games and he led the Maple Leafs to another crucial 3-1 victory in Game 6 Monday night at Air Canada Centre to force Game 7 on Wednesday at TD Garden. He finished with 32 saves and now has 74 stops in the last two games.

“We’ve got to score. That’s what we’ve got to do different,” said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy.
