LGD: 23 Florida Men

It’s Game Day!

The Leafs look to avenge last Saturday’s failed comeback attempt in Sunrise with a win against the Panthers in Toronto tonight.

Our boys in blue and white are coming off of a dominant 7-2 victory in New Jersey on Tuesday night, with six different Leafs potting goals in the win. Can they continue the momentum of their offensive dominance against another porous team tonight?

It’s all business as usual for both teams tonight. The Leafs roll out their usual lines on offense (yay!) and their typical pairs on defense (sigh). For the Panthers, they’re still missing Vincent Trochek, Derek McKenzie, Nick Bjugstad and Jamie McGinn, so the Leafs face the same Panthers team they took on less than a week ago.

Starting Goalies

Expect Frederik Andersen (18-9-1, .923) to rematch against Roberto Luongo (7-5-1, .906) tonight. Luongo enjoyed a decent outing against the Leafs on Saturday night, and has since looked sharp in a win against Buffalo as well. Andersen, meanwhile, has faltered of late, but looked poised and ready to return to his steady ways in New Jersey on Tuesday.

Notes

Puck Drop is at 7pm on Sportsnet Ontario.
