It's crunch time in the National Hockey League and that means it's the time of year many players will attempt to push through injuries in order to get their teams into the postseason.
It appears that two such players on the Toronto Maple Leafs roster are currently fighting through injuries, and unfortunately for Toronto it's two of their core forwards. Sportsnet's Steve Dangle has recently reported that both veterans James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak are currently hurting.
"They're obviously not 100%." said Dangle.
Dangle also stated that he "hopes" the Leafs will find an opportunity to give both players a few days of rest as they battle for their playoff spot, something that may be difficult to do given how tight the race has been.
