Game Notes

PIT
•Matt Murray (32-10-4, 2.41 GAA, .923 Sv%) will likely start for the Penguins

TOR
•Andersen (33-16-14, 2.67 GAA, .918 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Just win.

They would normally have Letang though, we don't have that.

Projected Pens line-up via a Pittsburgh beat reporter:

Guentzel-Sid-Sheary
Kuhnhackl-Cullen-Kessel
Wilson-Porter-Sestito
Simon-Rowney-Archibald

Cole-Schultz
Streit-Hainsey
Gaunce-Daley

Fleury starts instead of Murray. Hornqvist, Rust, Dumoulin, and Ruhwedel are healthy scratches (rest). Malkin, Letang, Maatta, Hagelin, Kunitz all out with injuries.

Well, no excuses tonight then.  I bet Tampa is a little upset about the healthy scratches though...

Yeah.  It's still hockey so anyone is capable of pitting a goal or two but Pittsburgh is certainly giving the Leafs a nice opportunity.

I didn't think they'd win against Tampa or Washington, but I'm calling a 5-2 win.

Guarantee void in Tennessee.

So what are the chances the Leafs beat either team? I think we may have a better shot at Columbus as they're playing cold right now but I think the odds of winning either game are below 50/50

I'm a little worried about how much delight Phil might get out of personally helping eliminate the Leafs from the playoffs.

Meh. They get to play Buffalo in their potential must-win game.

And he just might, if he fully loads up with what the equipment manager set out for him:

Good evening everyone. Let's hope for a good effort and clinch a spot and possibly overtake the Bruins for 3rd. Got a good feeling about this one. Marner, Auston, Willy give it yer all boys. 4-2 Leafs.
