The game will be televised on NBC in the U.S. In Canada, the game will be televised on Sportsnet, CBC and TVA Sports.
On Friday night, the Toronto Maple Leafs blueliner played a postseason-high 22:03 in his side's 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. Eastern Conference.

She made undisclosed threats, officials said, prompting numerous Denver-area schools to close on Wednesday as a precaution. After the manhunt was over, Police Chief Julio Yero asked that the family be given "privacy and a little time to grieve".
"The hardest game to win is the fourth game to put the other team out, especially a proud group of guys", Babcock said. "It's not easy. We will get prepared to really push". The Bruins challenged Matthews' goal, arguing that Rask was interfered with, but the goal was upheld after a review.
The Bruins got a power play, which had torched the Leafs for five goals on 11 chances through four games, but the visitors held firm.
David Backes finished with a grand total of 4:36 of ice time, Danton Heinen-who was quickly moved off of the Bergeron line-failed to put a shot on goal, and Noel Acciari was out-attempted five-on-five by eight shots attempts.
One person who clearly didn't get what he wanted was Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy.
"From my viewpoint, it certainly looked like goaltender interference", Cassidy said. The call didn't go our way. "We have time to get ourselves back in the game and regroup, unfortunately we weren't able to do that". I didn't watch it.
Columbus completes its bolt from the Blue, sweeps Lightning
Columbus has commanded the series since falling behind 3-0 in the opening period of Game 1, only to rally to win that one 4-3. The Columbus Blue Jackets capped a stunning sweep of the Presidents' Trophy winners with a 7-3 victory Tuesday night.
The Leafs eventually took a 2-0 lead, but Boston cut the deficit to one with a goal in the final minute.
"I was battling in front and I might've got bumped into him, but I don't think it caused much of anything".
Specifically, I'm talking about the type of play Ron Hainsey made to help the Leafs break out of.
I thought Game 5 was Rask's best of the series and he did everything he could to steal the win. Structurally, the Leafs were better and Andersen was solid ... The Leafs went several minutes without a shot on net in the second, but a weak Hyman shot got the Leafs going, as both Tyler Ennis and Kapanen had good chances ... Frederik Andersen has given up 13 goals on 174 shots faced. A Travis Dermott block on a streaking Sean Kuraly early in the third period was crucial ...
"It was probably the best game of the series as far as breaking the puck out cleanly and just communicating coming out of our zone", said Leafs centre Auston Matthews, who scored the first goal of the game in the third period. But it missed on two shots and Jake DeBrusk was wide of the net on another attempt shortly before the end of the period.
