The Toronto Maple Leafs will be facing the brink of elimination on Tuesday night as they face the Boston Bruins in game five at TD garden trailing 3-1 in the series.

A major decision will have to be made when it comes to goaltending and whether or not Ilya Samsonov is the guy for the job or if it is time to bring in rookie Joseph Woll in the mix. Sheldon Keefe weighs in on the decision in today's presser.
It is clear as day that Ilya Samsonov hasn't had the playoff campaign he wanted, however the blame shouldn't be just on him, instead on the team's scoring struggles. In four games the Leafs have scored just six goals, an embarrassing stat for a team with such scoring power on their offense.
In the third period of the match between the Bruins and the Leafs, Keefe knew something had to be changed therefore he inserted Joseph Woll in net to replace Ilya Samsonov. Today, he was asked if he will be giving his confidence to the rookie netminder for game five.
Keefe on going with Joseph Woll to start the third period and if he'd start Game 5?
"The reason for it is we're just trying to change things. You get to get Joe involved. That's really it. You're trying to change the momentum. As for what we'll do going forward, we've got some time here to talk it through.

The decision is yet to be made, but everyone on this roster must be on board going into game five or else we may see the Leafs fall earlier than expected.
