Who is going to skate on the fourth line left wing tonight, Adam Brooks or Trevor Moore? The Leafs have brought both to New York with them and will make a decision sometime before the game begins. Moore has been cleared to play after recovering from a shoulder injury that has kept him out since November.

Adam Brooks has slowly developed through his years in the WHL Regina Pats and AHL Toronto Marlies, becoming a solid top-line centre on the Baby Buds. Will he play tonight, becoming the third 2016 Leafs draft pick to play in the NHL? Auston Matthews and Carl Grundstrom (currently in the AHL) are the other two.
