Tonight, the Bruins are in town for their 2nd of 6 games against the Leafs this season and with them they bring a 14-8-2 record back up by amazing goaltending and powerful forwards. So what is Wilson's plan to counter the Bruins game? Why moving Phil Kessel to second line center of course. You read that right, for the first time in his NHL career and the first time since his days at the University of Minnesota, Phil Kessel will be patrolling the middle of the ice. Word out of the Leafs is that Kessel volunteered to play center and coach Wilson agreed. Normally I'd scoff at such a desperation move, but with the lack of good centers on the Leafs, why not give it a shot.

On Thursday night, as the Edmonton Oilers were demolishing the Toronto Maple Leafs, I was doing something I do about twice a year – I sat in the nose-bleed seats at Air Canada Centre. At the very top of Section 321. Nothing but the truest hockey fans all around. No empty seats. Not one.

Coming in to their meeting tonight, the Leafs and Oilers have several things in common; they're among the youngest teams in the league (Toronto average age: 25.9, Edmonton: 26.4), and they sit tied for 26th in the league with each having 20 points (though Edmonton has 1 more game played).
Follow me after the jump for more on tonight's matchup.
