Tyler Bozak was on the ice for warm-ups, but was a late scratch for the Toronto Maple Leafs in a must-win Game 6 against the Boston Bruins on Sunday.

Bozak seemed the laboring during the pre-game skate, and now there is reason as to why.

As reported on Twitter by Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050, Bozak has been listed as “day-to-day” with an upper-body injury.

Joe Colborne was inserted into the Leafs’ lineup in place of Bozak, who scored in Toronto’s Game 5 victory over the Bruins to force a sixth game.

For the 23-year-old Colborne, it was his first career National Hockey League playoff game.

The Leafs have forced a seventh and deciding game against the Bruins courtesy a 2-1 victory in Toronto.
