Roster Decision #1: Jack Campbell Will Start

In no surprise, Jack Campbell will be the Maple Leafs’ starting goalie for Game 6. He didn’t have the best game on Thursday, but he’s the goalie that brought the team to this position and deserves to start. The 29-year-old Campbell will look for the kind of a game that would bring his fourth playoff win and that would help his team advance to the second round of the North Division championship.

Roster Decision #2: Nick Foligno Will Be a Game-Time Call

Nick Foligno, who’s been out with a lower-body injury, will be game-time decision for Game 6. However, there’s a good chance he’ll be able to go. He was the second-line center during morning practice so it looks as if he’s closer to go that might have been expected. That said, head coach Sheldon Keefe probably won’t make the call until warmups.

Keefe reported that Friday was positive day for the Foligno, who’s missed the last three games with his injury.

Roster Decision #3: Travis Dermott Is Likely to Play in Place of Rasmus Sandin

Travis Dermott will likely be in the lineup for Game 6 tonight against Montreal. Coach Keefe suggested that he’d been considering Dermott’s addition since Friday. If Dermott is part of the lineup, it would be the second game he played during these playoffs; and, he hasn’t looked out-of-place or overwhelmed.

Sadly, Rasmus Sandin struggled on Thursday, so the team might be more cautious with him. Dermott’s experience matters.
