The Toronto Maple Leafs face a must-win game five against the Boston Bruins, and now Sheldon Keefe has shed light on his starting goaltender.

Ahead of the must-win game five in Boston, many Maple Leafs fans have looked at a goaltending change as a necessity, with Jim Ralph of TSN 1050 Toronto echoing those sentiments.
"I'd really think about making a goaltending change...I still believe there's something about Woll and his future, he can come up big in big moments"

Now, it appears that's exactly what the Maple Leafs will do, with Joseph Woll not taking his usual backup routine at the teams latest practice, with all signs pointing to a big change in net, according to Mark Masters.
Sheldon Keefe declines to reveal starting goalie for Game 5, but says:

"Special teams & goaltending are two areas that we have to be better in & they're connected in lots of ways"

Joseph Woll didn't stay out late at practice as the back-up tends to do

In four starts this series, Ilya Samsonov has posted an .883 save percentage, so while it's not all his fault, the Leafs need to make a change, and with Sheldon Keefe's hand being potentially forced, they turn to the young goaltender to turn this series around.
This fan really want Joseph Woll to start xD:
