Game 50: Vancouver Canucks at Toronto Maple Leafs
Time: 4:30 PM PDT
Place: Scotiabank Arena
Here is the preview for tonight:
And the 5pm news that shocked the hockey universe:
Lineup changes for this game:
- Pierre Engvall (C/LW)
- Timothy Liljegren (RD)
- Ben Hutton (LD)
- Michael Hutchinson (G)
- Nick Foligno (LW)
- Morgan Rielly (LD)
- Jake Muzzin (LD)
- Jack Campbell (G)
David Rittich starts tonight with Hutchinson backing up, Engvall will presumably skate on the third line with Mikheyev and Simmonds, Hutton-Liljegren has been the fourth pair in practice.
This is a SEGABABA, and with an expanded roster it would’ve been silly to not rest players who played the night before. It’s expected all four vets who are out won’t miss any more time.
Katya has a lot more on it in her article linked above (and below!)
What do you think your takeaway will be from this game?
|The future of Liljegren||110|
|Life after Morgan Rielly||104|
|That Ben Hutton isn’t a create-a-player||30|
|David Rittich as a backup||39|
