Two changes for Game 6

Created by: Leafsfan416

Team: 2020-21 Toronto Maple Leafs
Team Explanation
Dermott in for Sandin.
Nash for Brooks
Leafs had so many grade A chances tonight but Price, as he has been all series, was fantastic tonight. All the Leafs goals where gritty hard working goals.

Mikheyev Engvall Simmonds line was flying, one of the best. And when Keefe put Nylander with Engvall and Mikheyev, I loved the chances that line created. Nylander needs more ice time IMO, still only 4th overall in FWDs time on ice.

Rough one for Sandin, Leafs win that game without his two turnovers that led to goals.

Bad blind pass by Galchenyuk but he has been a monster all series with Kerfoot and Nylander, no chance I’d take him out.

If Foligno is ready I’d take Nash out for him and go:
Hyman Matthews Marner
Galchenyuk Kerfoot Nylander
Engvall Foligno Mikheyev
Thornton Spezza Simmonds

I'm good with getting Nash back into the line-up. Brooks was just kind of a warm body on the ice last night. Didn't really do anything big at both ends of the ice. At least they'll get a more defensively sound game out of Nash.

I'm on the fence about Sandin, I guess either way I trust Keefe's decision.

Would be nice if Foligno was good to go.

I'm thinking Dermott gets in tomorrow.

With Foligno I'd go

Hyman-AM34-Marner (hyman starting to look healthier now, hoping this trio has break-out game)
Foligno-Kerfoot-Nylander (Galch has been fine, but I think this trio would be a little more def reliable, and still provide some offence)
Soup-Engvall-Simmonds (if it ain't broke)
Galch-Thornton-Spezza (Galch provides more speed and creativity with these two, when Simmonds has been here they have not done much. If these 3 looked good, this could be the 4th line for awhile)

Completely agree, could not care less what the lines look like I trust Keefe will put the best lineup possible out there.

Good call with Foligno up with Kerfoot and Nylander. He never really found any chemistry with JT and Willy but maybe with Kerfoot in the middle could be different. Agree with changing up the 4th line. They got killed last night, adding Galchenyuk could definitely add some needed scoring punch with Thornton and Spezza.

Yeah. I think Galch and Spezza can create some magic together vs weaker competition. Also, playing Jumbo with 2 shooters would hopefully jumpstart his game again.

The way Nylander is playing right now, it's a good time to try Foligno there. Nylander is looking dangerous with Engvall and Mikheyev (when he's getting double shifted), surely Foligno can chip in a bit with him, and Kerfoot has certainly earned that 2C spot until Tavares is back.
