Maple Leafs Make Lineup Adjustments Ahead of Game 5 vs. Lightning

The Toronto Maple Leafs look to get back on track in Game 5 against the Tampa Bay Lightning after being blown out of the sunshine state in Game 4. Toronto is sticking with the same group for Game 5 but have made some changes up front.

Michael Bunting returns to the team's top line, a spot he thrived in all season long as the 26-year-old rookie recorded a career high 63 points in 79 games this season. The second line will see Ilya Mikheyev and Alex Kerfoot flank John Tavares as William Nylander has once again been pushed down the team's third line. This coming after Nylander was blasted by many for his work ethic in Game 4 and more specifically his unwillingness to go into the corners and endure contact.

Jack Campbell will once again be between the pipes after 'Soup' was pulled in Game 4 in favor of rookie Erik Kallgren. Campbell and head coach Sheldon Keefe had a long discussion at the bench before the move was made and it was rather obvious Campbell didn't want to come out of the game.

Puck drops at 7:30 est at Scotiabank Arena as Game 5 is setting up to be a wild hockey game with a ton of storylines to follow as Toronto and Tampa Bay battle it out for the series lead.
