GDT: Preseason Game #2 – Flyers at Maple Leafs (7 p.m., Sportsnet & LeafsTV)

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.

Carlyle was pissed off with the effort in practice today . Have a feeling he's going to one ornery SOB tomorrow

Tim Thomas on PTO with Florida. Remember Thomas is a libertarian where Income tax is considered unconstitutional.


  • Alaska at 6.4% of income
  • Nevada at 6.6% of income
  • Wyoming at 7% of income
  • Florida at 7.4% of income   ranked 4th in tax burden  

only Florida has an NHL team.  Makes perfect fucking sense!!

The Gardiner attempt and the bench reaction was priceless. They should get the stick bronzed.

That Clarkson goal was good enough for me.  Otherwise this game was like watching the All-star game.

@darthNihilus MacWilliam replaces Fraser by next year. Save a half million on the cap, Get a bit younger and quicker, maybe not as tough
