The Leafs are back after taking 18 days off during the Olympic break. Their opponent is the Metropolitan Division bottom-feeding Islanders.
Tonight’s game is the third and final meeting between the teams this season. The Leafs won the first outing 5-2, while the Isles took the second game 5-3.
Jonathan Bernier had an off night in that last game, allowing four goals on 24 shots, including a really fluky one by Calvin de Haan. Bernier will have a shot at redemption as he’s set to get the start tonight.
