Florida Panthers @ Toronto Maple Leafs
07:00 PM at Scotiabank Arena
Watch on: TNT, CBC, TVAS, SN
Another must-win. That fact cannot be lost on the team. Lose and you go home, same as the last game. You're back home, the crowd's with you, Union Station on the left, Maple Leaf Square on the right. Let's do this.
There aren't any media travelling with the team from what we can tell, so there are no updates on what the Panthers lineup is going to be tonight. For now, here is the lineup they've iced all series.
I don't expect much to change on the goalie from unless we get to Game 7 and Bob has blown it.
Game 4 via Daily Faceoff
Carter Verhaeghe - Aleksander Barkov - Anthony Duclair
Nick Cousins - Sam Bennett - Matthew Tkachuk
Eetu Luostarinen - Anton Lundell - Sam Reinhart
Colin White - Eric Staal - Zac Dalpe
Gustav Forsling - Aaron Ekblad
Marc Staal - Brandon Montour
Josh Mahura - Radko Gudas
Matthew Knies and Ilya Samsonov were both on the ice in Toronto this morning. Both have officially been ruled out for Game 5, but these signs are promising.
Don't expect any lineup changes for the leafs tonight. It's possible they go 12/6 at home with Zach Aston-Reese coming back in and one of the defenders (likely Liljegren) sitting. That said, Liljegren is a more impactful player than ZAR is so the Leafs best lineup probably has 11/7 as its arrangement. It doesn't seem like the forwards are being overworked (none of them played more than 21 minutes last game), so it should be fine.
Calle Järnkrok - Auston Matthews - Mitch Marner
Alex Kerfoot - John Tavares - William Nylander
Michael Bunting - Ryan O'Reilly - Noel Acciari
David Kämpf - Sam Lafferty
Morgan Rielly - Luke Schenn
TJ Brodie - Justin Holl
Jake McCabe - Timothy Liljegren
