Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul took line rushes during warmups and will return to the lineup. Lupul missed the game Thursday against the Boston Bruins with a lower-body injury; Jerry D'Amigo will be scratched to make room for him.
Jets forward Evander Kane did not take warmups and will be a healthy scratch. Jets coach Paul Maurice told CBC's Hockey Night in Canada before the start of the game that "it was just a coach's decision" to sit Kane.
Kane has 17 goals and 22 assists this season in 60 games, but has two goals and eight assists since the 2014 Sochi Olympic break, a span of 18 games.
It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
