Islanders at Leafs: We're 9 Pts Behind

Puck Drop: 7PM ET Sportsnet Ontario


The future Brooklyn Islanders (8-8-7, 23 pts, 5th in the Atlantic) bring John Tavares to Toronto for his first audition to be a Leaf Killer. I firmly believe he'll score at least a hat trick tonight seeing as he'll have 100 friends and family members in the stands (call it $100 a ticket average and he spent $10K, yowza).

Wallin is out of the lineup, Finger is hurt so Exelby gains a spot on the blue line. Schenn will be playing with Exelby which could get ugly really quickly based on their foot speed. The Islanders are a very young team and guys like Sean Bergenheim have rocket skates.

Vesa Toskala earned himself the start on Saturday night so he'll face Dwayne Roloson who is sporting a .911 save percentage and a 2.86GAA in 13 starts this year.

Don't forget your SPG Picks, and let's pray the Leafs pick up a much needed win.
