Johnsson had a goal and an assist Monday in a 3-2 win over Boston in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series. Through two games, Johnsson had been held off the scoresheet, but that would change Monday. After assisting on Auston Matthews' first goal of the postseason, Johnsson scored a power-play goal of his own, finishing with a pair of power-play points in what was a pivotal win for the Buds. Perhaps the most encouraging takeaway from Monday's win was Johnsson's TOI, as the 24-year-old finished with a season-high 18:30 of ice time.
Johnsson (illness) will rejoin the lineup versus Tampa Bay on Thursday, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports. Johnsson missed the last two games due to illness, but appears to be healthy and ready to go. The winger is expected to slot into a bottom-six role, but could also get a look on the second power-play unit. It's been a breakout campaign for the rookie, as he's notched 20 goals, 22 helpers and 126 shots, and will look to carry his strong season into the playoffs.
Johnsson (illness) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Sabres, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports. Johnsson will sit out his second straight game with this illness. The 24-year-old has had a breakout season with 20 goals and 42 points through 71 games, so the Leafs will need him to be healthy when the playoffs roll around. His next chance to crack the lineup is Thursday versus the Lightning.
Johnsson (illness) is not in Monday's lineup against the Islanders, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports. The 22-year-old has 42 points this season but scored just one goal and six points during March. With Johnsson out, Trevor Moore will enter the lineup.
Johnsson is dealing with an illness and will be a game-time call for Monday's matchup with the Islanders, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. Johnsson is currently stuck in an eight-game goal drought. The winger has put just 15 shots on net during his slump, despite averaging 16:05 of ice time including 1:40 with the man advantage. Kasperi Kapanen figures to jump up to the second line if Johnsson is unable to give it a go versus New York.
