It’s game night again! Why it feels like just yesterday that I dreamed the Leafs played the Ottawa Senators.

Tonight’s game is at 7 p.m. and is on Sportsnet Ontario, TSN5 and RDS which makes that a game subject to blackouts, I believe.

Ottawa will have mostly the same lineup as last night, or maybe they will do something weird:

I’m sure the Leafs are on tenterhooks waiting to find out who the Sens put on defence. I haven’t found confirmation of their starter yet, but Marcus Hogberg seems most likely.

Meanwhile the Leafs have decided to give out some rest breaks and this is the lineup I’m guessing at:

Joe Thornton - Auston Matthews - Mitch Marner
William Nylander - John Tavares - Nic Petan
Jimmy Vesey - Alex Kerfoot - Ilya Mikheyev
Pierre Engvall - Travis Boyd - Jason Spezza

Morgan Rielly - TJ Brodie
Jake Muzzin - Justin Holl
Travis Dermott - Mikko Lehtonen

Michael Hutchinson
Someone as backup! There is space to recall Joe Woll and let Andersen have the night off:

Zach Hyman is also day-to-day after blocking a shot last night.

The Marlies are also playing tonight at 7 in Manitoba, and they play again tomorrow at 5 p.m. if you are considering getting AHLTV, it’s a very good service and very reasonably priced now.

Go Leafs Go!
