In the battle against the Boston Bruins, the Toronto Maple Leafs managed to even the series at one game apiece with a hard-fought 3-2 victory on Monday night at TD Garden.

However, there's been a setback for the Leafs as forward William Nylander has been absent from the lineup for the first two games, leaving a significant gap in their offensive arsenal. Yet, amidst this challenge, there's a glimmer of hope.

According to the latest update from head coach Sheldon Keefe, there's a possibility that Nylander could return to action for tonight's crucial Game 3 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.

Sheldon Keefe says "there's a chance" William Nylander plays tonight. Will depend on how he responds to extra work this morning.


Auston Matthews is good to go tonight, per Keefe.



However, a recent report suggests that Nylander will more than likely miss Game 3, further complicating the situation for the Leafs.
