Tonight is for all the first round marbles between the Bruins and Maple Leafs on NBCSN and NESN at 7:30 PM at TD Garden. A familiar voice will announce on NBC Sports Radio tonight, here’s hoping he’s shouting “BERGERON! BERGERON! BERGERON!”

  • Historically, this situation has been problematic for the Maple Leafs in Boston. Boston Globe
  • On the other hand, this situation has historically been a heartburn five-alarm fire for the Bruins and their fans. Take a look back at recent history. CBS Boston
  • And for old times’ sake, Dave Goucher is ready and available to take the call tonight for Westwood One Sports and NBC Sports Radio. Who could be better? @DavidCGoucher
  • Five things. Boston needs to tie down these loose ends tonight. Puck Prose
  • One other mandate from Bruce Cassidy- carpe diem. Patriot Ledger
  • Four things tilted the ice toward Toronto in Game #6, and one was a goalie standing on his head.
  • What is a team to do when they own the game and still don’t win? The Hockey News
  • One bold proposal for the Bruins- slot in a guy who can finish. #FREERYANDONATO! WEEI
  • Looks like that isn’t happening, but Danton Heinen will replace Tommy Wingels, and Rick Nash returns to the second line. @NHLBruins
  • For the hometown boys, all is calm, all is bright- sounds like Christmas. On the heels of the Game #6 loss, the Bruins hiked up their britches and went back to work. NHL
  • And once again, the Tuukka Rask naysayers are snickering. Okay, okay- try the historical Game #7s eye test this time. WEEI
  • Point, counterpoint panel discussion. Will the Bruins or Maple Leafs move ahead tonight, and why? ESPN
  • What exactly is David Pastrnak going to change in his game? (Video, 0:15) Streamable

Elsewhere around the rink

  • Unlike the above exchange, NHL players are to a man delightfully candid and funny, as demonstrated here. NO, REALLY! (With video) Grandstand Central
  • You’ve seen her work here, and her mononymous credit. For over twenty years, Elsa of Getty Images has been capturing the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Buzzfeed
