The Maple Leafs have cancelled the viewing party at Maple Leaf Square for tonight’s playoff game between Toronto and the Boston Bruins because of the nasty weather outside.

“Due to dangerous conditions following the ice storm in Toronto this weekend, and with the safety of our fans in mind, the fan tailgate party in Maple Leaf Square for tonight’s playoff game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins has been cancelled,” the Leafs said in a statement Monday morning.

The team is urging fans with tickets to the game to take public transit if possible.

Conditions will continue to be monitored over the next 24 hours to determine status of the fan tailgate parties in Maple Leaf Square for events scheduled Tuesday night (Game 2, Raptors vs. Wizards) and Thursday (Game 4, Maple Leafs vs. Bruins).

The Raptors were already forced to cancel its Game 1 party outside the Air Canada Centre on Saturday because of the poor weather.

The Leafs trail the Bruins 2-0 heading into tonight’s game.

3 factors that will decide Game 7 between Bruins, Maple Leafs .
After the Bruins initially seemed poised to wrap up their first-round matchup with the Maple Leafs in four, Toronto clawed its way back to force a winner-take-all Game 7 on Wednesday night in Boston. This series has been similar to the first-round meeting between these two clubs in 2013, with the Bruins taking a 3-1 stranglehold once again, only to see the Leafs even things up in Game 6. Maple Leafs fans are painfully aware of how that series ended, but a new year brings new hope.
