The Toronto Maple Leafs kick off their post-elimination tour tonight against another squad bound for the links in the Florida Panthers. The Panthers have taken two of three meetings between the clubs this season, including the latest – a 4-1 home victory.
Without much to play for, the Leafs are expected to ice a less experienced lineup tonight. Drew MacIntyre is expected to start in goal, Carter Ashton will play top-six minute again on Nazem Kadri‘s wing, and Petter Granberg could make his NHL debut. Dave Bolland, who missed the Leafs’ 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday, is not expected to play.
