We’re about to find out just how important Matthews is to the Leafs

Maple Leafs vs. Oilers

7:00 p.m. ET

Watch on: TSN4/SNW

The Toronto Maple Leafs will play their second game in a row against the Edmonton Oilers. Last time we expected a high scoring game, and instead we got some dull defensive hockey. This time the Leafs are without both Auston Matthews and Joe Thornton, and have called up Adam Brooks, Pierre Engvall, and Alexander Barabanov to replace them with a more normal 12F/6D lineup.

Naturally I’m now expecting the Leafs to lose a 6-5 chaotic mess of a game.

What Leafs player do you think will step up the most without Matthews?
