Panthers vs Maple Leafs preview – Game 4
The Leafs' hopes of lifting the Stanley Cup are hanging by the thread as they head into Game 4 of their Second Round series against the Panthers. The Toronto team are 3-0 down and will need a win on the road at the FLA Live Arena tonight to stay in contention.
Rookie goalie Joseph Woll will start in place of the injured Ilya Samsonov – a great way for the 24-year-old to make a name for himself if he can pull off some magic. The Maple Leafs need something to go right at the other end of the ice too, though. Forwards Mitchell Marner and William Nylander have yet to score in the series.
Only four teams have ever come back from this position to win 7-game series in the NHL but the Maple Leafs were one of them in the 1942 Stanley Cup final. Can they manage that feat again?
The improbably flying Florida Panthers will have something to say about that, no doubt. Their defeat of the Bruins has been hailed as the greatest upset in NHL history, and they play with a sense of nothing to lose.
The puck drops for Game 4 tonight at 7pm ET. Here's how to watch a Panthers vs Maple Leafs live stream no matter where you are in the world.
