The good news for the Toronto Maple Leafs is that they’re so good even this awful stretch (.883 in the last 11 games) has only seen them lose three of his starts in regulation. 

With that having been said, the Leafs’ roster situation is such that they arguably cannot afford to gamble on even questionable goaltending in the playoffs.
