This will be a hard matchup for the Leafs tonight.

NHL: OCT 20 Blues at Maple Leafs
TORONTO, ON - OCTOBER 20: Toronto Maple Leafs Center Frederik Gauthier (33) stares at the puck at a face-off during the regular season NHL game between the St. Louis Blues and Toronto Maple Leafs on October 20, 2018 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, ON.

Nick Shore, Dmytro Timashov, and Martin Marincin out, Nic Petan, Jason Spezza, and Justin Holl in.

Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs will play the St. Louis Blues on TSN. Here is the preview:

Here is last year’s recap of our home game against the Blues. It was not fun.

Auston Matthews is running on five goals in his past five games, meaning he’s one of the three stars of the week in the NHL.

From one top-line centre to another, Tyler Bozak and his wife are expecting a third child!

As we approach a third of the way until Mike Babcock’s unofficial tryout deadline, let’s take a quick poll on who should fill out the bottom of the roster.

Let’s be clear, these are what the battles are. There will be no jumping around to different positions. For example, the likelihood of a Travis Dermott - Rasmus Sandin third pair is slim to none so it’s not an option. Babcock is looking for a capable defender with that 3RD position and neither one of Dermott nor Sandin is going to fill that role; they’re going to be one of the two fun puck-moving guys.
