Game Notes

TOR
•Andersen (32-16-4, 2.67 GAA, .922 Sv%) will likely start for the Leafs
•Awaiting to see if the Nylander-Marner combination will stick while on the road. Babcock said the other day if Nylander performed well he'd stay at centre, and I think most agree that he did. But he still might want to split up the two offensive stars so one of them is away from the Hedman-Stralman pairing
•Tomas Plekanec might be making his Maple Leafs debut after being acquired yesterday
•Tonight's projected line-up will of course be effected by whatever happens prior to 3pm today. Will JVR still be around? Will Lou be getting Babcock a big name defenceman?
•Nikiatia Zaitiseev's pointless streak has now reached 21 games

TB
•Vasilevskiy (36-12-2, 2.34 GAA, .927 Sv%) will likely start for the Lightning
•I don't know why Callahan is there either, but he did score a goal in their last game after he was promoted to the top line
•There was a 2 or 3 stretch there where Nikita Kucherov was struggling to score. That stretch is over. The league's leading scorer has 18 points in his past 11 games
•The Lightning are of course another team looking to add a defenceman today. Rumours are swirling around Erik Karlsson, but if that doesn't pan out someone like Mike Green could be acquired instead

Injuries

•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - Actually Injured - Out indefinitely
•Auston Matthews - Shoulder - Injured Reserve
      
•Ondrej Palat - Lower Body - Injured Reserve
•Peter Budaj - Leg - Injured Reserve

That's not a horribly looking 4th line...

I dunno I can see why people would be attracted to Plekanec but Leivo and Kapa... oh, you're not talking about it like that.

It has to be Plekanec, Leivo and Komarov, with Kapanen moving to Kadri or Nylander's wing, right?

It's an away game, so I'd expect to see them smear out the talent.

Marleau - Kadri - Marner
Leivo - Nylander - Hyman
JvR - Bozak - Brown
Komarov - Plekanec - Kapanen - trying out the new secondary shutdown line

I know you're fair-minded, CTB, but I don't think it's necessary to lop off 4 wins from our record.  :) ;) :o :o :o :P

Me, seconds before hitting post: Wow, I almost forgot to update the home team record. How embarrassing. I'm sure nothing else is wrong.

My experience is, the only way to avoid mistakes is never to say or write anything.  And even then we make mistakes.

Happy for Kappy, but that 4th line might never leave the DZ now.

The Leafs 4th line at the beginning of the season had Matt Martin and Eric Fehr on it.
