The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins are set to begin their first round series tonight, but the Maple Leafs could be without a very valuable member of their team as he's questionable to be in the lineup tonight. This could leave a massive whole, one that is hard for the Leafs to fill.

According to Darren Dreger of TSN forward William Nylander is questionable to be in the lineup for game 1 tonight as he tweaked something during the team's day off; take a look.

Nylander has been rather streaky at different points of the year, having not scored since March 26th, having a player of his calibre potentially miss the first game of the playoffs will hurt the team if he's not able to go.


Even with his off and on play this year, Nylander skated in all 82 regular season games for the Leafs this year- putting up 40 goals and adding 58 assists for a total of 98 points.

With Nylander's status being up in the air for the game tonight, are the Leafs in trouble? Only time will tell

Things don't look too positive though as Nylander wasn't on the ice this morning:

It remains to be seen if William Nylander will be able to get himself to a spot physically where he can suit up for Game 1 in Boston tonight. This isn't an issue he was playing through down the stretch. He woke up Thursday in some discomfort.
