Can the Maple Leafs slow down the red-hot Juuse Saros?
Well, they’ll have to try and do so without the services of Auston Matthews. The 25-year-old, who’s considered day-to-day, will not play tonight due to what Sheldon Keefe said is something that’s “been bothering him for a while.” Whatever that means.
Instead, 26-year-old Bobby McMann is slated to make his NHL debut as the Leafs kick off their second half slate at home against the Nashville Predators. Of course, the game preview was the feature presentation on today’d edition of Leafs Morning Take.
Furthermore, as mentioned, it promises to be a spicy goaltending matchup tonight, especially with the way Juuse Saros has been playing lately for Nashville. Thanks to our new friends over at Montana’s, who are offering all you can at ribs tonight by the way, we previewed it.
