Johnson will defend the cage Wednesday against Toronto, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN report.

Johnson gets a chance to redeem himself after getting shelled for five goals in his last appearance Sunday. That disaster aside, the netminder has been stellar of late, posting a 5-2-0 record and 1.72 GAA since taking over the No. 1 role for the Flames. The Leafs will likely test the 30-year-old often, as they're averaging 32 shots on goal per game, fourth in the league.
