  • Peter Holland will sit as Tyler Bozak is set to make his return for the first time since Oct. 25th
  • Paul Ranger will sit for Mark Fraser once again, while Trevor Smith is also likely to sit tonight.
  • After making 49 saves Saturday vs Washington Capitals, James Reimer will start his second straight game in over a month. Reimer leads the NHL in save percentage with .947. ”It’s cool, I guess, for a little bit but not something I put too much weight into [because it'll fluctuate], said Reimer Monday after the morning skate in Toronto.
  • Leafs vs Blue Jackets all-time record: 6-2-1-2 (3-1-1-1 at Toronto)
