There’s pre-game meals and then there’s Wheaties.

Clarke MacArthur, apparently, had the latter for prior to Game 5 between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins.

As per a tweet from the Globe and Mail’s James Mirtle, MacArthur also predicted he would score. That MacArthur did, on a glorious effort in the third period to give the Maple Leafs a 2-0 lead. It turned out to be the winner.

They would hang on for the 2-1 victory and stave off elimination for the moment, sending this series back to Toronto for Game 6.

The triumphant moment comes after MacArthur was a healthy scratch for the Leafs earlier in this series.

“He was obviously a little upset sitting out,” Leafs center Tyler Bozak told the Globe and Mail about MacArthur.

“You never want to sit out at this time of year. Maybe it put a little spark in him because he’s played unbelievable hockey since he’s been back.”

    At least he’s not Penner and injures himself having those dangerous pancakes his wife makes.
