Notes:

- The Maple Leafs will be facing a depleted Bruins lineup as they are without Loui Eriksson, Johnny Boychuk, Chris Kelly, Adam McQuaid and Shawn Thornton. The Leafs need to take advantage of facing this lineup.

- Thornton has been suspended pending his in-person hearing over his vicious attack on Pittsburgh’s Brooks Orpik last night.

- Lineups are subject to change as there was no morning skate for either team. Since Reimer started last night, Bernier will start tonight.

- Joffrey Lupul is close to returning from his groin injury, although watching the optional Leafs skate today on Leafs TV, there were more than a few of the commentators that though he could play tonight. That would, of course, be a bonus for the Leafs.

- This is the first Sunday night game for the Leafs in ten years.
