Concerns rise as Joseph Woll's availability in doubt for game seven

Published May 4, 2024 at 6:45 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have allowed just one goal in each of their past two games, but now, the goaltender leading the way may be forced to miss a must-win game 7.

Joseph Woll was under one second away from a crucial shutout in game six against the Boston Bruins, but now serious concerns have emerged about his availability on Saturday night;

There have been recent reports questioning Woll's availability tonight due to an injury or illness of some kind.

Going to Samsonov would not be a coaching decision, it would strictly be if Woll can't play. #LeafsForever

With Auston Matthews and William Nylander both missing time this series, absolutely anything is possible, but now their hand may be forced;

All three Toronto goalies -- Joseph Woll, Ilya Samsonov, Martin Jones -- arrived on the second bus.

But, yes, I do think it is possible Samsonov starts tonight.

We will see in warmup.

It's not yet clear what the issue is, as Woll may put all those doubts to bed with a stellar performance, but right now with hours until the game begins, there's no telling what's happening.

Now some rumblings on Woll's availability for game 7. I can't make this up.. I'm hoping for @MapleLeafs fans someone else did.
