Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and John Tavares will skate on the line in Game 5 against Columbus.
The Leafs experimented with this line during last month's training camp, but they haven't put them together in a real game situation until now. This is a do-or-die game for both sides. Matthews will line up at center, while Marner will play on the right and Tavares will skate on the left. This has the potential to be a very powerful offensive line, but hockey is a funny game sometimes and this doesn't necessarily guarantee any kind of immediate success. Aug 09 7:52 pm (EST)
