Line Up: Leafs v. Ducks

What can I say other than…Is tonight the night?  Will the boys win one for Burke in his old stomping ground?  The Ducks aren’t exactly taking the NHL by storm this season but every team is a tough opponent for the Blue & White these days.

The notable move tonight is the return of Jonas Gustavsson who will get the start.  He hasn’t seen a lot of NHL rubber yet this year – let’s hope he’s ready.  Also noteworthy is the reduction in muscle in the line-up as both Mayers and Rosehill sit.  Finger takes his -6 to the press box again as he seems to be in a platoon situation with Garnet Exelby.

Tonights expected line-up…


Ponikarovsky Grabovski Blake
Stalberg Stajan Stempniak
Mitchell Wallin Hagman
Kulemin Primeau Orr
Kaberle Komisarek
Beauchemin White
Exelby Schenn
Macdonald (assumed to be the back-up)
