Here’s our look at tonight’s elimination game.
First reported by Chris Johnston, Andreas Johnsson has been activated off the injured reserve and could return to the lineup tonight against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Johnsson has been out since February after undergoing knee surgery. It’s been seven months since he last played in one game and his comeback could be tonight in a win or come home in Game 5 against the Blue Jackets.
The 25-year-old left-winger has appeared in 43 games this season, scoring eight goals and 21 points, a 40-point pace, which is impressive considering many believe Johnsson has had a bad year. He was also Sheldon Keefe and Kyle Dubas’ Calder Cup MVP in 2018 when the Toronto Marlies won the championship.
If he was ready, Johnsson would be an instant boost for the Leafs in the top-six on the left side, potentially pushing one of Ilya Mikheyev, Nick Robertson or Kyle Clifford out of the roster entirely – no d ‘between them does not deserve to be put to the game on merit. .
He has been training with the team for almost a month, but hasn’t played a game for a while. Most likely he’s not playing tonight and just takes the pre-game skate and we I hope see him up against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round. Having said that, it would be really cool to see his return.
Is Andreas Johnsson playing tonight?
Yeah, top six, baby!
Yes, but in a limited role
No, stay with this range
Can we swap him last minute for David Savard?
