Toronto Maple Leafs make 'INTERESTING' goaltender move ahead of tonights game

Published April 18, 2023 at 2:29 PM

Tonight marks the beginning of an exciting seven-game series between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Tampa Bay Lightning, which is a highly anticipated rematch of last year's intense seven-game series. In that series, the Lightning managed to come out on top in overtime, leaving the Maple Leafs eager for redemption.

Unfortunately, Toronto's starting goalie, Matt Murray, suffered another injury at the end of the regular season. During a collision with Lucas Raymond, Murray was sent crashing hard to the ice and hit his head, resulting in a concussion. This setback is a significant blow to the team, and it's unlikely that Murray will be able to participate in the playoffs.

To fill Murray's shoes, the Maple Leafs will turn to their backup goalie, Ilya Samsonov, who has proven to be a reliable player in the past. However, in a surprising move, the Maple Leafs have announced another addition to their team today.

The @MapleLeafs have recalled G Erik Källgren from the @TorontoMarlies to serve as the Club's playoff emergency backup goaltender (EBUG).

With the Marlies playoffs about to start, it will be interesting to see what happens, considering both of their goalies are currently on the Maple Leafs roster.
