Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans! Or is it? It's game day in New Jersey as the Leafs are set to take on the Devils tonight at 7PM on TSN4, and they'll be doing so without either Ryan O'Rielly or John Tavares.
O'Rielly is out with a broken finger suffered in the game against the Canucks on Saturday. He was placed on LTIR, so he's officially out until March 29th.
John Tavares is ill not injured, so it should be a one or two game issue.
To fill the holes in the roster, the Maple Leafs have called up Pontus Holmberg and Alex Steeves from the Toronto Marlies.

So. It's not great news but as Sheldon Keefe said, the Leafs played most of the season without O'Reilly, so they're used to that.

Elsewhere in Leafsland, some Leafs fans want Morgan Rielly off defense and into the wing.
