Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe said he didn't like anyone's performance last night in the club's 4-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

With the Leafs taking on the Washington Capitals tonight, they have not had much time to clean up their mistakes. That hasn't stopped Keefe from making a shocking lineup change, however.
Ryan Reaves was injured following his fight with Nick DesLaurier and did not play after leaving in the first period. With Reaves out, Noah Gregor draws in. That isn't the biggest change, though, as Keefe has decided that T.J. Brodie will watch from the press box for his first time as a Leaf. As a result, Conor Timmins will draw in.
Fans have been begging for Brodie to come out of the lineup for quite some time now and it appears Keefe has finally had enough of defending him publicly. Timmins will draw into the lineup for the first time since January 24th against the Winnipeg Jets.
This will be Timmins' first game back since he was was diagnosed with mononucleosis. Adding Timmins to the lineup will give the Leafs three left shots and three right shots on their blueline for the first time all season.
