The Playoffs spot is still to be decided for the Leafs. They need to win against the Blue Jackets tonight to dodge the Capitals and face the Senators. However, both teams are already sure to be a part of the post-season, so injuries need to be avoided as much as possible. 

Very late in the first, Leafs' defenseman Nikita Zaitsev cleared the puck before being rammed by the powerful Nick Foligno

He was visibly wobbling following the hit and retreated directly to the locker room. 

We will keep you posted about his status.
