The Maple Leafs and Red Wings close out the home-and-home tonight (7pm CBC, TSN1050 Radio) in the final preseason game for both teams. Detroit defeated Toronto 5-2 Friday night in Detroit. The Red Wings scored three power-play goals in the win.
To get you set for tonight’s game, we will be having the #TMLtalk Game Day Skate show LIVE from the ACC today starting at 10:30am. Paul Hendrick, Bob McGill, Jon Abbott and Brooke Pashley will get you set for tonight’s game. You can also watch on Leafs TV or this link http://is.gd/wwBn8q
It is expected that James Reimer will get the start in net tonight. Cody Franson could also play after making his preseason debut in Friday’s loss. Franson was minus one with over 21 minutes of action Friday night.
The Leafs held two on ice sessions Saturday so it wasn’t quite clear as to who would be in the lineup tonight. Prior to the first skate, the Leafs announced that they had recalled Spencer Abbott, Jerry D’Amigo, Andrew MacWilliam, Greg McKegg and Stuart Percy from the Toronto Marlies.
We have some pre-game video with Randy Carlyle, James Reimer, Nazem Kadri and Morgan Rielly
