The Toronto Maple Leafs had to make an unexpected change in net before Game 7 against the Boston Bruins due to an injury to Joseph Woll, whose pain he was battling was clearly visible in practice Saturday morning. .

Woll appeared to be injured in the final moments of Thursday night’s game, when he made a desperate dive to block a shot that ultimately rattled the ropes. He appears to have suffered a pulled muscle in his groin or leg.

TVA Sports journalist Renaud Lavoie, who was at Leafs training with his cameraman, presented exclusive images during the pre-match. Watch in main video.

Woll “makes a simple trip and stays on the ice a little long. Nothing major at that point, but still, he goes to see goalie coach Curtis Sanford. He takes a few minutes of rest, does some stretching exercises,” he explained during his segment.

“Subsequently, he obviously met Ilya Samsonov. The two men had a short discussion, but it was pretty clear that there was a problem. Curtis Sanford came back to see Joseph Woll to see if there was still a possibility that he would play in tonight’s match,” continued Lavoie.

It was Samsonov who started the decisive game against the Bruins with Martin Jones as assistant.
