Game notes
STL
•Jordan Binnington (19-15-2, 2.93 GAA, .908 Sv%) will likely start for the Blues

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (11-4-6, 3.25 GAA, .881 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Tavares is expected to return to the line-up on Monday after missing Saturday's game with an upper body injury
•Domi, Liljegren, and McCabe all missed practice on Monday due to "maintenance" reasons, while Lagesson is considered questionable after leaving Saturday's game with an upper body injury. So the projected line-up could see a number of changes between now and when the puck drops Monday afternoon
•With all the question marks on defence the Leafs called up 25-year old defenceman Marshall Rifai from the Marlies. If Rifai makes his NHL debut on Monday he will be the 11th defenceman to suit up for Toronto this season

Game notes
ANA
•Lukas Dostal (8-13-1, 3.60 GAA, .900 Sv%) will likely start for the Ducks
•Starter John Gibson left Anaheim's last game with an upper body injury, and there hasn't been an update on his status yet. With that said there's a good chance Dostal will get start regardless considering his 55-save performance in Anaheim's first game against the Leafs this season

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (11-4-6, 3.25 GAA, .881 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs

Game notes
PHI
•Samuel Ersson (15-9-3, 2.49 GAA, .901 Sv%) will likely start for the Flyers
•Philly made a big announcement on Wednesday naming Sean Couturier the 20th captain in team history, a position that has been vacant since Claude Giroux was traded away 2 years ago. Couturier was out of action for 22 months, missing the entire 22/23 season, with a major back injury and returned this season with his usual Selke-worthy level of play

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (10-4-6, 3.26 GAA, .880 Sv%) will start for the Leafs
•William Nylander has joined Marner and Tavares in the sick club, as all 3 players did not practice with the team on Wednesday due to the flu bug going around the team
•If all 3 forwards are unable to suit up on Thursday it would put the Leafs in a bit of a pickle roster space wise, and they could be forced to play with just 11 forwards unless one of those 3 end up on the IR

Game notes
STL
•Jordan Binnington (18-13-2, 2.89 GAA, .909 Sv%) will likely start for the Blues
•St. Louis is 15-7-1 since firing head coach Craig Berube and replacing him with Drew Bannister. That's put them back into the playoff picture as they currently occupy the 2nd wild card position in the West

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (9-4-6, 3.38 GAA, .879 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Toronto is of course expected to be without Morgan Rielly. That's led to Keefe moving Liljegren up to the top D pair alongside Brodie in his place
•Kampf and Giordano are both expected to return to the line-up, while Timmins has still not practiced and is expected to be out with an illness

•Toronto called up Max Lajoie on Friday evening, giving them 9 defencemen on the roster. This seems like a precautionary move since both McCabe and Giordano were given the practice off on Friday and might be a bit banged up

Game notes
DAL
•Scott Wedgewood (13-4-4, 2.98 GAA, .899 Sv%) will likely start for the Stars
•Oettinger was in net for the Stars in Buffalo last night so expect him to get the night off. Wedgewood was also in net for Dallas' first game against Toronto this season, a 4-1 win for the Leafs
•Dallas currently sits 1st in the Central division and 3rd overall in the league. And while I think they've often had a reputation for being a defensive team it's the offence leading the way as they sit 3rd overall in goals per game. They've achieved this with a balanced forward group as 8 forwards currently have 10 or more goals, and 6 are above 15

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (8-4-6, 3.35 GAA, .879 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•The Leafs head into their 2nd post-ASG break still without Kampf and Jarnkrok and stuck with their lines from Monday at practice yesterday. A bottom-6 forward group that Keefe won't (or maybe can't) play might be a much bigger problem against this Dallas Stars team than it was against the Islanders

Game notes
NYI
•Ilya Sorokin (14-12-9, 3.17 GAA, .909 Sv%) will likely start for the Islanders
•The Islanders made a big change to their team before the all-star break, firing Lane Lambert and hiring Patrick Roy to be a NHL head coach for the first time since 2016. New York won their first game with Roy behind the bench, but have gone 0-2-1 since then

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (8-3-6, 3.36 GAA, .878 Sv%) will start for the Leafs
•The Leafs returned to practice after their all-star break minus David Kampf, who per Keefe was a little banged up before the break. He's currently considered day to day until further test results
•On the flip side it looks like the break was long enough to get McMann back on the ice and ready to play, as he suited up on the 4th line alongside Holmberg and Reaves at practice

Game notes

•Connor Hellebuyck (23-8-3, 2.17 GAA, .925 Sv%) will likely start for the Jets
•Josh Morrissey, who left Wednesday's game with a lower body injury after blocking a shot, was at practice with Winnipeg on Friday and seems fine to play
•Winnipeg also had Vilardi and Scheifele practice with the team. Scheifele has been declared out but Vilardi will be a game time decision

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (7-3-6, 3.45 GAA, .875 Sv%) will start for the Leafs
•The Leafs have a question mark with their line-up after Jarnkrok left practice on Friday because of a blocked shot that seemed to sting his hand. If he's unavailable that may open the door for Winnipeg-native Ryan Reaves to get back into the line-up, otherwise the Leafs could use 7 defencemen

Game notes
WPG
•Laurent Brossoit (7-3-1, 2.18 GAA, .923 Sv%) will start for the Jets
•Winnipeg will potentially be without a trio of key players in their first game against the Leafs this week. Hellebuyck will serve as back-up while Scheifele and Vilardi are both close to returning from minor injuries but are still considered day to day (of the two Vilardi is more likely to play Wednesday)
•Winnipeg's 4-1 loss against the Bruins on Monday was the first time in 35 games that the Jets gave up more than 3 goals. They went 26-6-2 during that stretch and currently sit 3rd in the entire league in points

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (6-3-6, 3.69 GAA, .866 Sv%) will start for the Leafs
•Bertuzzi was not at practice on Tuesday, which gave Holmberg a chance to skate on the Tavares line. Bertuzzi was away from the team with his wife expecting the birth of their child. His status for the game is not confirmed but the Leafs are preparing for him to possibly be unavailable
•Giordano appears set to be a healthy scratch in back to back games. Keefe noted that having an even split in handedness among the defencemen played a role in Timmins staying in

Game notes
SEA
•Joey Daccord (13-7-8, 2.34 GAA, .922 Sv%) will likely start for the Kraken
•Seattle had a trio of forwards who missed practice on Saturday (Eberle, Schwartz, Yamamoto). No official word on their status but Hakstol seemed to indicate their might be some illnesses or minor injuries so their line-up could be a bit up in the air
•One forward who will definitely be out is Yanni Gourde, who is serving a 2 game suspension for a charging incident against Edmonton on Thursday

TOR
•Ilya Samsonov (5-3-6, 3.88 GAA, .863 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Coming off a loss and going into the 2nd half of a back to back with travel can and probably should lead to some line-up changes for the Leafs. It would not be surprising to see Roberton and one of Timmins or Lagesson get back into the line-up

CGY
•Dan Vladar (7-5-2, 3.30 GAA, .885 Sv%) will likely start for the Flames
•Calgary won has 4 games in a row, and are 10-4 in their last 14 games. This stretch has put them right back into the playoff conversation in the West as they currently sit 9th in the conference
•Blake Coleman is surprisingly leading the charge for Calgary recently. He has 25 points in his last 19 games to give him 38 points total this season. That matches his previous career high that was set last season in 82 games
•Jonathan Huberdeau's struggles since joining the Flames have been well documented. After a 12-game pointless streak though he did record 8 points in his last 8 games, but missed Calgary's last game with an illness

TOR

Game notes
EDM
•Jeff Skinner (18-9-1, 2.63 GAA, .903 Sv%) will likely start for the Oilers
•Edmonton has climbed back into a playoff spot after replacing head coach Jay Woodcroft with Kris Knoblauch. The team has gone 20-6 since the change and are currently on a 10-game winning streak
•Prior to the firing Edmonton was dead last in the league with a .864 all situations save percentage. Some combination of the coaching change, Jack Campbell being banished to the minors, and Jeff Skinner waking up has their save percentage jumping up all the way to .909 since the firing, which would be good for 8th in the league in that span

TOR
•Martin Jones (8-4-1, 2.30 GAA, .924 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Toronto did not practice on Monday as the team travelled out West. That means it's unclear whether Keefe will stick with his blended up line-up, revert back to a more standard one, or use some combination of the two

•Anaheim got off to a very surprising 9-6-0 start to the season but have since come crashing back to earth going 4-17-0 after that
•The Ducks will be without the 2nd overall pick in the 2023 draft Leo Carlsson as he went on the IR with a knee injury in late December. Carlsson had a solid 15 points in 23 games prior to his injury

TOR
•Martin Jones (5-3-0, 2.37 GAA, .926 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•All eyes will of course be on the goaltending situation here as it's possible 6'7" rookie Dennis Hildeby could get his first NHL start. Keefe repeated his stance after the LA game that it's possible Jones could get both starts on this back to back depending on how he feels physically though

TOR

•Some lines and pairings were changed up at practice on Friday. Most noticeable is Marner and Nylander swapping spots back to where they were at the beginning of the season. The D pairings were also jumbled and it might see Conor Timmins take a seat in the press box
