There was also a scare when Kasperi Kapanen left the game and did not return, but it sounds like it was precautionary only from a fluke accident.
Kapanen update, x-ray comes back negative after his arm collided with the glass. Status to be reassessed tomorrow in Dallas. #LeafsForever— Paul Hendrick (@HennyTweets) January 28, 2020
The Leafs next game is Wednesday against the Dallas Stars at 7:30 p.m. ET.
