The Leafs have been on the shelf since they kicked the crap out of Edmonton on Tuesday, but that’s not how it was supposed to be. With their Thursday tilt vs the Flames postponed due to Calgary having too many players out with Covid, the Leafs got a little extra R&R.
Now it’s the Buds turn to lose players to the Covid virus. All of Jason Spezza, John Tavares, Alex Kerfoot and Wayne Simmonds have been placed in Covid protocol, which leaves the team short bodies tonight:
By my count this gives the Leafs 11 forwards and too many defenders, so I’m starting to wonder if it’s possible to see a player move from the blueline to the wing tonight. My vote would be Justin Holl, because he’s doing a shit job as a defender these days.
Either way, unless I’m mistaken, the lineup will look something like this tonight:
Bunting Matthews Kase
Ritchie Kampf Nylander
Mikheyev Engvall Clifford
Enjoy the game
GO LEAFS GO!!
