Stefan Noesen makes his Toronto Maple Leafs debut tonight on the third line. Thornton is on the first line, replacing the injured Nick Foligno. Otherwise, no changes to tonight’s lineup.

Here is the preview from the start of the week. Habs played last night (and lost by a lot to the Ottawa Senators) so they’ll hopefully be tired and upset. Therefore, the Leafs will certainly lose.

The Leafs are six points up on Edmonton and 15 up on the Habs with four games to go for them. The Leafs need five more points to guarantee the division for the first time in a long time. That’s either points for themselves, or lost points for the Oilers. No other team can realistically catch them at this point.

Go Leafs Go!
