The Toronto Maple Leafs are fighting for their playoff lives against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night, and Maple Leafs rookie defenseman Morgan Rielly is leaving everything on the ice.

Rielly was tripped up by Darren Helm on a rush late in the second period but was still able to send a centering pass to Joffrey Lupul with a one-handed swipe at the puck while on his stomach. Lupul deposited the pass to cut Toronto's deficit to 3-2 after 40 minutes.
