I don't have to tell you why the game was postponed, as we all know what transpired here in the nation's capital yesterday. 

As Jon noted to me earlier, this is now the Sens' last home game before Remembrance Day, so that could have factored into the decision on the new date.

This Sunday night tilt will be the second half of a back-to-back for both teams. The Senators host the Jets the night before, while the Leafs are in New York to face the Rangers. 

The rescheduled game will have a 6:00pm EST start.

Over the past few seasons, an obvious weakness in the Leafs' lineup has been the lack of a truly defensive blue-liner. Not to be confused with a lumbering stay-at-home guy who can push people around, we're talking about a mobile defenceman who can be responsible positionally and make smart plays to turn the puck in the right direction. Stephane Robidas seems to fit that description, so his name has been bounced around as a potential Leafs trade target more than once in recent years.

The Leafs are still in Collingwood for some paintball and other team-bonding activities, but they hit the ice for practice this morning in preparation for the Red Wings tomorrow evening. It will be the final trial run for the Leafs before the regular season opens up next Wednesday, and we should see nearly-complete lineups, as the coaching staffs attempt to get everyone in tune ahead of the real show.
