Game Notes

TB
•Vasilevskiy (39-18-5, 2.49 GAA, .916 Sv%) will start for the Lightning
•Brayden Point missed a couple of games late in Tampa's season, including their regular season finale. But he's been confirmed to play in game 1
•Stamkos and Kucherov turned god-mode on late in the season: in Tampa's last 16 games of the season Stamkos had 33 points while Kucherov had 31. Point meanwhile only had 7 points in his last 14 games so the focus will certainly be on Tampa's top line at the start

TOR
•Campbell (31-9-6, 2.64 GAA, .914 Sv%) will start for the Leafs
•Since returning from his rib injury Campbell is 7-0-2 with a 2.59 GAA and .915 Sv%
•Kase skated on the 2nd line at practice on Monday and while Keefe called him a gametime decision his participation at practice is a good sign to him playing
•Bunting was also at practice and wearing a regular jersey but he left early and Keefe called him doubtful for game 1

•Rasmus Sandin - Knee - Injured Reserve

Leafs in 7 - its going to be difficult though.  No excuses.

However, if we can beat Tampa - we can beat anybody. 

Go Leafs Go!!!

(yes I said "we")

Best defense we've iced yet since the core forwards arrived.  That's good.  But it all comes down to Campbell.  He'll have to have the series of his life to beat Vasilevskiy & Co.

But as I say every time in R1G1 threads, NO PESSIMISM ALLOWED!!

GO LEAFS GO

I'm here in New Mexico and I have the ESPN+ subscription. I noticed that the game is on ESPN2, for Leafs fans in the U.S. Do you know if the ESPN app will allow me to watch the game?

I would think so but ESPN seems to randomly block games in my area (Raleigh, NC) so who the heck knows.

Good luck

To take us back to a time of playoff excitement, I'd like to reintroduce something that we did back then. And that was yelling PAT QUINN in playoff game day threads.

PAT QUINN!!!!!!!

Not a terrible trade-off if we have to have someone not ready to go but Kerfoot seemed kind of anemic on the top line compared to Bunting.  I don't think the skillset overlaps as well as I would like.

I mean they only played 1 game together as a full trio and it was against Detroit but I thought he looked pretty good in that one.
