  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Records win during return

    Samsonov turned aside 23 shots during Wednesday's 3-1 victory over the visiting Sharks.

    Starting for the first time since Nov. 5, Samsonov picked up where he left off before being sidelined with a knee injury. The 25-year-old netminder yielded just one second-period goal Wednesday, marking the seventh time in nine starts he allowed two or fewer tallies. Samsonov, who missed 12 games with the injury, improved to 7-2-0 as the Maple Leafs claimed their fifth consecutive win.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Gets starting nod against Sharks

    Samsonov (knee) will be between the pipes versus San Jose at home Wednesday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Samsonov will be making his first appearance in goal since Nov. 5 versus the Bruins, a stretch of 12 games on the sidelines. While Samsonov's return is certainly good news for the Leafs, Matt Murray's four-game winning streak has likely cemented him as the No. 1 option in Toronto. Erik Kallgren figures to head back to the minors with Samsonov cleared to play.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Not expected to play Saturday

    Samsonov (knee) is not expected to play Saturday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    While Samsonov has been practicing, coach Sheldon Keefe wants Samsonov 100 percent before he returns to action. Samsonov could return as early as Monday against the Islanders. He is 6-2-0 this season with a 2.23 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: On ice Tuesday

    Samsonov (knee) was on the ice Tuesday, per Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun.

    Coach Sheldon Keefe said Samsonov's timetable is "uncertain," but added that it can be described as week-to-week. Still, it's an encouraging sign that Samsonov is already skating after sustaining the injury during Saturday's game against Boston. Erik Kallgren will start Tuesday versus Vegas with Keith Petruzzelli serving as the backup. Matt Murray (groin) remains out, but he's getting close to returning.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Getting MRI

    Samsonov (knee) will have an MRI on Sunday, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

    Samsonov was moved to injured reserve Sunday after he was injured in Saturday's win over Boston. An exact timetable for his return is currently unclear, but the Leafs netminder is expected to be sidelined for more than a week.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Lands on IR

    Samsonov (knee) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic reports.

    Samsonov was injured in Saturday's game against Boston. He will unavailable for at least the next four contests, starting with Sunday's matchup versus Carolina. Samsonov was off to a superb start this season with a 6-2-0 record, a 2.23 GAA and a .921 save percentage. Toronto will have to make it work with Erik Kallgren and newcomer Keith Petruzzelli as crease options because Matt Murray (groin) and Joseph Woll (shoulder) are not available.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Suffers knee injury

    Samsonov left Saturday's game against Boston because of a knee injury.

    Samsonov stopped 13 of 14 shots over the first two periods, but he didn't come out for the third. He had a 5-2-0 record, 2.30 GAA and .920 save percentage in seven starts prior to Saturday's contest. The Maple Leafs are already missing goaltenders Matt Murray (groin) and Joseph Woll (shoulder), so if Samsonov is out for any extended amount of time, Toronto will be in a very difficult situation.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Won't be available Sunday

    Head coach Sheldon Keefe doesn't know the extent of Samsonov's knee injury, but the goalie won't be available Sunday versus the Hurricanes, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

    Samsonov was hurt on Brad Marchand's penalty shot in the second period, which led to the Bruins' lone goal of the game. Samsonov's injury comes at a bad time for the Maple Leafs, who will turn to Erik Kallgren in goal going forward with Matt Murray (groin) still at least a week away from returning. The Maple Leafs play four times in the next seven days.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Starting Saturday

    Samsonov will guard the home crease against Boston on Saturday, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

    Samsonov is 5-2-0 with the Maple Leafs as he has provided strong goaltending thus far. He has a 2.30 GAA and a .920 save percentage, allowing more than three goals only once in his seven starts. He faces the red-hot Bruins, who are off to a great start at 10-1-0 and have averaged 4.55 goals per game this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Gets team back on track

    Samsonov made 23 saves in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    Toronto carried play for most of the night, finishing with a 44-25 edge in shots. Samsonov was solid when called upon and played his part in the much-needed win. Even taking on a Flyers team deploying winless backup Felix Sandstrom in net, Toronto couldn't take anything for granted after going winless over the last four games of its recently completed road trip.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: First goalie off Wednesday

    Samsonov was the first goalie to leave the ice Wednesday and is expected to be in goal at home versus the Flyers, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Samsonov has dropped two straight games after having won his opening four outings of the season. In that pair of defeats, the Russian backstop has allowed a combined seven goals on 62 shots (.887 save percentage). With Matt Murray (groin) sidelined, the 25-year-old Samsonov should continue to feature prominently but may have to split starts once Murray returns.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Not much help from teammates

    Samsonov made 25 saves on 29 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Kings on Saturday.

    The loss wasn't on Samsonov. The first two goals were tough to swallow -- his stick was knocked out his hand both times, which left him unable to effectively move post-to-post to stop the puck. Plus his teammates spent far too long in the penalty box, leaving Samsonov to be the best player on the ice. The Leafs play again Sunday in Anaheim and Samsonov will likely get a rest. He deserves it.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Starting Saturday

    Samsonov will get the road crease against Los Angeles on Saturday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Samsonov did not start Thursday in San Jose, as he was feeling ill. He has played quite well for the Maple Leafs, going 4-1-0 with a 2.01 GAA and a .932 save percentage. Samsonov will face an LA team that has found the back of the net 32 times in nine games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Feeling a bit sick

    Samsonov is feeling a bit under the weather Thursday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Samsonov is expected to dress for Thursday's game against San Jose, but his illness factored into the Maple Leafs' decision to start Erik Kallgren over him. If Samsonov is still feeling sick Saturday, then perhaps Kallgren will start in that night's game versus Los Angeles as well.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Takes first loss versus Vegas

    Samsonov allowed three goals on 33 shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Samsonov had won his first four starts of the year, but the Golden Knights outplayed the Maple Leafs in this one. This was also the first time Samsonov's allowed more than two goals in a game this year. He's given up 10 tallies on 146 shots to begin his Maple Leafs career in solid form. The 25-year-old should continue to serve as the starter with Matt Murray (groin) out until mid-November at the earliest.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Guarding goal Monday

    Samsonov will start Monday on the road against Vegas, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Samsonov is coming off a 30-save performance in Saturday's 4-1 win over Winnipeg. He has given up two goals or fewer in each of his four previous starts this season en route to a 4-0-0 record. Vegas lost two of three games last week, including a 3-2 defeat to Colorado on Saturday.
