After a short lull we get two Leafs games in one weekend. The dreaded back-to-back with travel starts tonight with the annual visit to Toronto by the Edmonton Oilers and then the Leafs will jet off to Carolina to play the Hurricanes tomorrow.

We'll have our preview of the game out later this morning, though it is already confirmed Mitch Marner will be out for both games and more players are sick.

Speaking of injured players...

The Marlies have back-to-back games here too after playing in Rochester last night where they won in 2-1 in a shootout. Dennis Hildeby was in net for the Marlies.

The bad news is the announcement that Kieffer Bellows is out week-to-week with a lower body injury. Not a good time to lose one of your top scorers.

A reminder that if you are coming in to downtown for any games this weekend from the west, there is no GO Train service at all for the whole weekend. Trains will be back on Monday.

In prospects news, East Cowan's point streak continues. His final regular season game is on Sunday and then the London Knights are off to the playoffs.

And Jocelyne Laroque will miss the next PWHL Toronto game.

Speaking of that next game, it's this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. in Ottawa.

It's a full day for Toronto hockey team action!
