Sundin sits out again Tuesday with groin tear

TORONTO -- Toronto Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin did not play Tuesday night against Boston, sidelined for the fifth straight game because of a groin tear.

Sundin skated for about 15 minutes Tuesday morning, but was not on the ice for the 6-2 loss. The Maple Leafs have won three of five with Sundin out of the lineup to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

Injured Toronto forward Nik Antropov also sat out, but checking forward Boyd Devereaux returned after missing 15 games with a knee injury.
