Game Notes

TB
•Vasilevskiy will start for the Lightning

TOR
•Campbell will start for the Leafs
•Projected lines are based off of game 4 since the team did not practice on Monday. No confirmed changes yet but it wouldn't be surprising to see some things tweaked and possibly Liljegren and/or Simmonds inserted back into the line-up

Maybe Sandin to facilitate quicker breakouts?  Risky, I know, but they could use a new wrinkle.

Kaberle15

No need to say this, but this is a must win. Hopefully Leafs from games 1 & 3 will show up. 5-1 Leafs.
A.K.A Gardiner51, Changed back to Kaberle15 now that he is retired.

What's the reason for taking Bunting off the first line? Is it a defensive thing? Seems really stupid to break it up now.

He's playing hurt and can't play like he normally does. He probably shouldn't even be playing

He's not 100% and yeah it was a defense thing.  I think the Leafs keep falling into the trap of letting other teams dictate the way the game is going to be played though.  Keefe was line matching to the point that the Matthews-Marner line were the third line starting periods.  Then penalties take them out of the game further.  Matthews and Marner are good defensive players.  You need to trust them to be your best players.  Stop letting Tampa dictate the line matchups

A stacked up top line (Tavares/Nylander-Matthews-Marner) should be starting every game.
