The Leafs have a few players that will be game time decisions tonight, with all of Morgan Rielly, Ondrej Kase, Joseph Woll and Mitch Marner nursing a variety of injuries. Things became heated after Marner was hit by teammate Jake Muzzin in practice yesterday and, for precautionary reasons, he left practice early. Their teammates are saying the right things at least, for anybody that may be looking for signs of distress within the Leafs locker room:
The hope is that all four players will be ready to suit up come game time, but the chances are at least one or two will be watching from the press box. While the regular guys never want to sit, that will open up opportunities for depth guys to make an impression on the Leafs coaching staff. In particular, Joey Anderson will get another chance to show that he belongs in the NHL, while both of Sandin or Dermott could be in for increased minutes if Rielly can’t dress.
Jack Campbell will start for the Leafs tonight.
Enjoy the game.
GO LEAFS GO!!
