Game Preview: Clicky.

James van Riemsdyk is expected to sit again tonight. His back spasms still haven’t let up despite two treatments today, and the Leafs training staff is hesitant to risk a setback.

The Leafs have four players in the lineup at forward who no one would’ve penciled in prior to the season, but they’re finding ways to win and currently sit top 5 in goals for, powerplay, and shooting percentage. They’re top 10 in goals against, and top five in penalty killing and team save percentage.

Let’s keep this train rolling.

GO LEAFS GO.

Cam Ward is expected to start for the Hurricanes. Ward is apparently playing with extra motivation after his Team Canada snub, but there is not going to be room with both Reimer and Bernier going to Sochi.

    Yeah, seriously, what did he expect?

  • wendelsway1

    I really don’t like the Staals…..hope Kessel plays great tonight…yeah, FYou, Eric…….hope Kadri squishes Skinner like a bug………GO LEAFS GO!!!

  • JMAC17

    Starting to look thin on the forward group.
    Cant wait to have Clarkson, Kulimen, JVR and McLearn back.

  • JMAC17

    wendelsway1 Leave Skinner alone, got him in my pool…take out Tlusty!

  • wendelsway1

    JMAC17 wendelsway1 LOL……No worries…..that works!….but somebody’s getting squished like a bug, Damnit!…  :)

  • JMAC17

    wendelsway1 JMAC17 Was really hoping Komi was playing…would have been fun to watch Kessel walk around him all night

  • wendelsway1

    JMAC17 wendelsway1 The funny thing is, I was reading some Carolina fans’ posts today   and they were hoping Komi was in the line up….thought he’d do well against his old team….lol

  • Alec Brownscombe

    @lieffan Can’t wait until a rival fan comes in here and loses it about that comment.

  • JMAC17

    wendelsway1 JMAC17 this is the 7th game of 8 he has been scratch.
    Seems like Muller is seeing the same things we saw….a step too slow.
    Too bad, think he is a pretty classy guy by all accounts.
    Probably make a good coach some day.

  • Loric76

    Alec Brownscombe lol

  • LeafsGuru

    Considering he’s been watching the game from the box so much he might actually be a good coach

  • Loric76

    Leafs 5-2 tonight.  Rielly gets his first goal, Kessel gets a hatty, Ward chased off the ice.

  • wendelsway1

    JMAC17 wendelsway1 Yep….great team guy but we’ve just got much better options.

  • Reether

    So is Reimer starting tonight?

  • theacs1966

    Loric76 According to my calculations, Levio gets his first tonight.

  • LeafsGuru

    Agree Rielly gets his first goal and takes out someone middle ice
