The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off a 4-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens, in what was an exciting game, as always. You can read more about that in Tim’s recap.
But tonight, the Blue and White will faceoff against the Philadelphia Flyers in their season opener at the Wells Fargo Center. Here’s what the lines may look like tonight as per DailyFaceoff.com. (Keep in mind, the Leafs did not skate this morning, and the Flyers had an optional skate.)
As expected, Jonathan Bernier will get the nod in goal for the Buds, while the Flyers counter with Steve Mason.
It’s not confirmed, but Jake Gardiner may be sitting this one out. If true, Morgan Rielly will make his debut.
The Flyers will be scratching Scott Laughton in order for them to play Jay Rosehill. Hal Gill is also scratched.
The game can been seen on TSN or heard on TSN Radio 1050 and will start a little after 7:30 p.m.
