Maple Leafs' Morgan Rielly: Slips to PP2 to start camp
Rielly is starting training camp on the second power-play unit, reports The Athletic.
New assistant coach Guy Boucher has taken over the reins on the power play, and he's decided to experiment with newcomer John Klingberg in Rielly's old spot on PP1 -- at least to start camp -- despite the Leafs having the NHL's second-best power play last season. Klingberg is more of a shooter, and Rielly is a distributor, so the Leafs want to see what a different look does for their top unit. So far, Rielly is skating on PP2 with Tyler Bertuzzi, Calle Jarnkrok, Max Domi and Timothy Liljegren. Rielly may still end on PP1, but right now, Klingberg will be given every opportunity to shine.... See More ... See Less

Maple Leafs' Morgan Rielly: Scores winner in overtime
Rielly scored the winning goal in a 4-3 overtime victory over the Lightning on Saturday in Game 3.
Ryan O'Reilly won a draw cleanly deep in the Bolts zone and Rielly lofted a wrister from the point that went over Andrei Vasilevskiy's blocker shoulder at 19:15 of the extra frame. It was otherwise a rough night for Rielly, who was jumped in the third by Nikita Kucherov, who took exception to a play that injured Brayden Point. Rielly was bloodied in the melee and ended up playing the remainder of the game with a cotton plug in one nostril to staunch the bleeding. Point ultimately returned, but Rielly will be at the top of the most-wanted list in Game 4.... See More ... See Less
