The Toronto Maple Leafs take on the Philadelphia Flyers at the Air Canada Centre this evening in the second game of a preseason back-to-back. They won the 1st game in London, 4-3.

The Flyers are splitting their team in half and are playing two exhibition games on the same day, with one game in Toronto against the Maple Leafs and another at home against the Capitals. That’s unusual, and will likely benefit Toronto as they are dressing their full first line, Clarkson, Bernier, Kulemin, and will have some additional speed and offensive ability on the backend with Rielly and Gardiner in the lineup.

Tonight’s game will provide first looks at new Leafs Clarkson, Bernier, T.J. Brennan and Trevor Smith. Smith, Ashton and D’Amigo are among the bubble boys up front, while MacWilliam, Brennan and Granberg are all hoping to put themselves in the mix for a spot on defence on the opening night roster.

Here is Toronto’s expected lineup for tonight’s matchup.

    Makes sense for Philly to divide their team because there’s no chance in hell they would’ve won with their NHL first team anyway.

    Doors about to open at ACC for game tonight. Already more fans than Panthers had this afternoon.

  • Doorman

    Cameron19 Doorman go to notes and see if you have approve keeper selection.  Beside dave keon.

  • WendelGilmour

    Loric76 wiski Could be because they need to see guys like Brennan, and Granberg, Percy has been with the Marlies at season’s end the past 2 years, so they’re very familiar with his game. He also plays in Mississauga, so I’m sure they’ve seen him plenty.

  • Bobsyouruncle

    wiski Still more than enough players on the roster to fill 2 game line-ups. Giving MacWilliam another look before Marlies camp?

  • Cameron19

    Doorman Cameron19 I don’t have approve keeper selection.
