A concerning rumor about William Nylander's availability for tonight's game has just been confirmed, and it's not good news for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Nylander is officially out for tonight's matchup, which is a significant blow for the team.

This announcement comes at a crucial time as the Boston Bruins are gearing up for a must-win game against the Maple Leafs. With the series tied 1-1, tonight's game is pivotal, and the Bruins are hoping to steal a win on the road in Toronto.

Nylander's absence is especially impactful as he has yet to play a game for the Leafs in the playoffs, missing both game 1 and game 2. Now, with confirmation that he will also miss Game 3, the Leafs will need to find a way to compensate for his absence on the ice.

Earlier today, there were rumors circulating that Nylander might still be an option for tonight's game. However, the recent news confirms that he will not be suiting up, further complicating the Leafs' lineup decisions and strategy for tonight's matchup.

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.


As the Bruins look to capitalize on Nylander's absence and secure a crucial win, the Maple Leafs will need to regroup and find a way to overcome this setback as they aim to defend home ice and take control of the series.
