Morgan Rielly returns to Maple Leafs lineup vs the Tampa Bay Lightning

Published April 2, 2024 at 1:33 PM

The defenseman Morgan Rielly will be returning to the Maple Leafs lineup Wednesday as Toronto is set to face the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Rielly missed the last four games with an upper-body injury. Fortunately, just like when he was suspended five games for a dirty play on Senators' Ridley Grieg back in February, Toronto has been quite good without him. They've won their last three games against the Capitals, Sabres and Panthers.

Morgan Rielly is set to return to the lineup tomorrow, as fans will get to see a rematch from last season's first playoff round against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Jonas Siegel confirms that Rielly will be available tomorrow for the playoff rematch against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Siegel revealed that Rielly should play on Wednesday, but also that the forward Mitch Marner won't be available until next Saturday, against the Montreal Canadiens.

"Sheldon Keefe says Morgan Rielly is available to return for the Leafs against Tampa on Wednesday.

Mitch Marner likely won't be available until Saturday in Montreal."

The Leafs are having a tough challenge in front of them. The Lightning won nine out of their last ten games, thanks to Andrei Vasilevskiy finally getting back to his playoff shape.

However, with Morgan Rielly back on the ice, and coming off a strong team effort against the Florida Panthers, the Leafs have all it takes to win this game. With the Bolts trailing only six points behind them in the Atlantic Division, all games are crucial as we get to the playoffs.

Stay tuned for more details.
