Sheldon Keefe has made his choice and the head coach will send Jack Cambell in goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs for the first game of the series ahead of the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.
Campbell is thus preferred over Frederik Andersen for this first duel that will make its debut in the playoffs. Since joining the Bettman Tour in the 2013-14 campaign, Campbell has never seen action in the playoffs.
However, the 29-year-old goalkeeper deserved the start, as he had a campaign beyond all expectations. He recorded 17 wins in 22 starts while maintaining a goal against the average of 2.15 and a save rate of .921.
Annoyed by injuries during the campaign, Andersen worked 24 games for the Leafs. He put out 2.96 goals against the average with a save rate of .895.
