The Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe opened up on game 7 and the team's possible elimination at the hands of the Boston Bruins in a press conference.

As both team prepare for an ultimate game seven, Keefe dropped an interesting quote that highlights the team's mindset of the past few games.
Here's what he said:
"In my mind, we just played two Game 7s. It is an elimination game."

The Leafs have been trailing behind for the whole series and have been facing elimination for the past two games. Going into game seven makes no difference for the team. They're used to it and now, the pressure's on Boston to win.
The Bruins want to avoid last year's scenario, when they blew a 3-1 lead against the Florida Panthers. The B's are now 0-6 in the past two seasons in their series-clinching games.
However, let's not forget that the Leafs haven't won a game 7 since 2004.
The other topic to follow closely will be Auston Matthews' status. Even if the Leafs managed to win twice without him, the team is hopeful to see him back on the line up. This could give a significant boost to his teammates.
Who do you think will win the game and clinch their ticket to the second round between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins?
