GDT: Maple Leafs at Sabres (7 p.m., Sportsnet)

TORONTO, ON- SEPTEMBER 22 - Toronto Maple Leafs left wing James van Riemsdyk would get a goal tender interference penalty for running over Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller as Buffalo Sabres defenseman Chad Ruhwedel looks on in the third period as the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-3 in preseason action at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, September 22, 2013.

Jonathan Bernier starts in net. Trevor Smith will play between Lupul and Clarkson on line two (he’s never received much more than 5 minutes from Carlyle, so this will be interesting).

Carlyle: “We can’t expect Trevor Smith to come up and put him on our fourth line. It’s unfair to him in this situation. When we had other people ahead of him, we had Bozak, we had Bolland, it’s a little bit different, but in tonight’s situation he’s going to play a prominent role in an offensive line.”
