Opponent’s Site: Eyes on the Prize
In the second straight game, the Maple Leafs made two choices in their roster. First, Jack Campbell starts for the second night in a row, Frederik Andersen will support, I hope I didn’t just push him to play. Second, Adam Brooks and Travis Dermott will enter the lineup up front and defense.
Brooks will enter the center with Foligno. This is Brooks’ first NHL career playoff game. A little surprised they didn’t wait against the Winnipeg Jets, that would have been fun.
Dermott will also be in defense. He was in good health at the rear behind Rasmus Sandin, who was in command of PP1. With the short delay between games, it was surprising the team changed their staff to the power play without a practice or two in between. If it’s that simple, William Nylander must be on the first unit immediately.
At row level, Simmonds moves to the third row centered by Engvall and winged by Mikheyev. Kerfoot is between Nylander and Galchenyuk. Dermott is on the third pair with Bogosian.
