  • Bunting (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's Game 2 versus the Lightning, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports. Bunting missed Monday's Game 1 with an undisclosed issue, but he'll take the suspended Kyle Clifford's spot in the lineup for Wednesday's rematch, skating with Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner on the top line against Tampa Bay. The 26-year-old winger racked up 23 goals, 63 points and 175 shots through 79 regular-season contests this year, so as long as he remains healthy, don't expect him to come out of the lineup anytime soon.

  • Bunting (undisclosed) is targeting a return for Wednesday's Game 2 matchup with Tampa Bay, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports. Bunting is far from a lock to get back into the lineup Wednesday but the fact that he was practicing in a first-line role Tuesday is certainly a step in the right direction. Prior to his four-game absence, the winger was stuck in a four-game goal drought during which he registered just six shots, though he did pick up a pair of helpers over that stretch.

  • Bunting (undisclosed) is doubtful for Game 1 against the Lightning on Monday but he should return during the series, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports. Bunting missed the last three games of the regular season and he's expected to miss some time in the postseason as well. The 26-year-old racked up 23 goals and 63 points while averaging 15:33 of ice time in his first season with Toronto.

  • Bunting (undisclosed) is trending in a positive direction, but he won't be available for the final two games of the regular season, David Alter of The Hockey News reports. The Maple Leafs will hope to have Bunting back for Game 1 of their first-round playoff series, as the 26-year-old winger has broken out in a major way this season, having racked up 23 goals and 63 points through 79 contests, both career highs by a significant margin. Another update on Bunting should surface once he's given the green light to rejoin the lineup.

  • Bunting (undisclosed) is going to miss time, Joshua Kloke of The Athletic Toronto reports. Bunting left Saturday's game versus the Panthers in the first period, and the injury appears set to cost the winger time. The Maple Leafs have three games left in the regular season, and it's unclear if he'll be ready to return for any of them. With Bunting out, Nick Abruzzese or Jason Spezza will likely pick up playing time while William Nylander could see an enhanced role.
