Toronto Maple Leafs (9-5-4) vs. Chicago Blackhawks (5-7-4): 7:00 p.m.
Watch on: SN, NHLN
Opponent’s site: Second City Hockey

Here’s our preview of tonight’s game:

And one from our opponent’s SBN site:

Mitchell Marner had an MRI on his right ankle yesterday and is definitely missing tonight’s game. His status beyond tonight is still unknown.

The main story this Sunday is Don Cherry’s racism and exclusionism. Sportsnet released an apology by the network’s president, but failed to provide any apology from Cherry himself. As of yet, Cherry has not been punished for his hate speech.

Tonight’s Leafs game is the feature presentation of Sunday’s Hometown Hockey, hosted by Ron MacLean, who has been getting backlash as well for his failure to speak out during the Coach’s Corner segment last night. I, personally, will be looking for an apology from him as well.
