In Saturday night’s Game 6 of the Maple Leafs-Canadiens series, Jake Muzzin left the ice in the second period after this:

It looks to be some kind of muscle pull, and we might know more tomorrow.
In other news, in the intermission segment, it was confirmed that should a Game 7 be necessary, John Tavares will not play.
In the five games prior to this one, Jake Muzzin played the fourth most minutes per game at five-on-five amongst defenders, but the second most, behind Morgan Rielly, in all-situations. Not surprising, then, he leads the team in PK minutes. The PK has been a bright spot in some troubled times in the last two games for the Leafs.
When we have more information, if we every do, we’ll update you.
