GDT: Maple Leafs vs Red Wings while Willy watch continues

New, comments

The Leafs look to take their streaking offense into Detroit to face their not very good and very injured lineup.

NHL: Preseason-Detroit Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Toronto Maple Leafs at Dallas Stars: Game #5

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Little Ceasar’s Arena, Detroit MI

Broadcast/Streaming: TSN4

Our game preview with lineup information is here.

In case you missed the updates to the initial preview, the Leafs are running pretty much the same lineup they did against the Dallas Stars, with some adjustments:

Forwards:

Patrick Marleau - Auston Matthews - Kasperi Kapanen

Zach Hyman - John Tavares - Mitchell Marner

Par Lindholm - Nazem Kadri - Connor Brown

Josh Leivo - Frederik Gauthier - Tyler Ennis

Defense:

Morgan Rielly - Ron Hainsey

Jake Gardiner - Nikita Zaitsev

Martin Marincin - Travis Dermott

Freddie Andersen to start.

So Dermott moving over to RD eh? Wonder if that’s at all related to him getting a little bit more of a prominent role and more ice time at the expense of Ron Hainsey, maybe signalling Babcock’s intent to work Dermott into serving as Hainsey’s replacement?
