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.
