Rarely does the NHL schedule allow a team to re-visit fame and shame in just 48 hours.

The Maple Leafs get it all this weekend, the home team in the Hockey Hall of Fame Game against the New Jersey Devils on Friday and then off to the scene of their stunning collapse in Game 7 of last season’s playoffs, TD Garden in Boston for a date with the Bruins.

“It’s something that happened, something we’ll have to answer to, something we have to deal with,” centre Jay McClement said this week. “But our goal is to get into that situation again and handle it a lot better.

“We have other concerns right now. We have to get our game back to where it should be. (Boston) is not something that has been brought up around here.”
