The Leafs will have Niklas Hagman and Jonas Frogren in the lineup tonight when they take on the Pittsburgh Penguins at Mellon Arena (7pm, CBC, AM 640). Meanwhile, hard-luck defenceman Mike Van Ryn – who suffered his second concussion of the season on Thursday in Boston, will be out for the remainder of the Leafs’ road trip.

In last night’s World Junior pre-tournament game, Canada outlasted Sweden 4-2 in a matchup that featured the top two draft-eligible prospects for 2009: John Tavares and Victor Hedman.

In AHL action, the Marlies dropped a 4-3 shootout decision to Providence.
