Maple Leafs confirm goaltender vs. Lightning

It's a divisional showdown in Toronto.



The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off a wild 6-4 victory over the Florida Panthers at Scotiabank Arena on Monday night, and they're going to be right back at it this evening with another division rival from the Sunshine State, as the rival Tampa Bay Lightning come to town.

The Lightning are coming off just their second regulation loss in their last 10 outings, dropping a 4-2 decision to the Detroit Red Wings at Amalie Arena on Monday night; the win by the visiting Red Wings moved them closer to the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference's tightly-contested postseason chase. 

And while the Leafs will not have Joel Edmundson or Mitch Marner in the lineup tonight, they have decided that it will be goaltender Joseph Woll between the pipes. He was impressive in his last start against the Washington Capitals, turning aside 23 shots from the desperate Capitals.

So far this season, Woll has amassed a record of 11-9-1 with a goals against average of 2.87 and .910 save percentage. He's already missed considerable time due to injury.
