The Leafs have so far been able to stop losing streaks before they start and look to do exactly that tonight with a bounce back win in Philadelphia.
Saturday’s loss was a tough one. The Leafs were far from their best but really should’ve taken a point out of it after fighting back in the third, only to foul it up with seconds left in regulation. Randy Carlyle took on some of the blame for not taking a timeout, but that’s kind of a 20/20 hindsight explanation. If Scrivens holds onto the rebound, or if Gunnarsson or Kostka prevent the Senator from skating unabated to the puck, we’re thinking nothing of that defensive zone faceoff.
The Leafs killed the Flyers last time out, but you get the sense Philadelphia has started to figure it out as of late. They’ve won 3 of 4, have been scoring a ton of goals (as they always do), and now Scott Hartnell is back from injury.
No lineup changes are expected for the Leafs.
