Leafs captain Sundin to sit out fifth straight game with groin injury

TORONTO - Toronto Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin will not play in Tuesday night's home game against the Boston Bruins.

He will miss his fifth straight game due to a groin tear.

Injured forward Nik Antropov will also sit out but checking forward Boyd Devereaux will return after missing 15 games with a knee injury.

Sundin skated for about 15 minutes Tuesday morning.

The Leafs have won three of four with Sundin out of the lineup to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

The Bruins, who sit in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, enter play four points ahead of Toronto.
