Maple Leafs Sticking With Lineup Changes

The Toronto Maple Leafs were down 1-0 versus the New York Islanders on Monday night when head coach Sheldon Keefe decided to mix things up. Turns out these changes will be sticking around for the time being.

Leafs Nation can once again expect to see Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews playing together on the team's top line, meanwhile William Nylander and John Tavares will be paired up on Leafs' second line. Nylander and Tavares combined for six points on Monday in two periods and carried the Maple Leafs to victory against the Islanders.

The Maple Leafs host the New York Rangers on Wednesday night as it's their second game of a five-game home stand. Ilya Samsonov is slated to start his fourth straight game and we'll see how long it takes before Coach Keefe decides to mix up his top six once again.
