Projected Lineup

Leafs to Keep an Eye on:

  • Max Lajoie finds himself in the lineup tonight for the fifth time this season. Lajoie will look to make confident decisions with the puck while playing a simple game and not giving up much defensively.
  • Max Domi moves into the top-six with Tavares out of the lineup tonight. Domi has played some of his best games with the team when elevated in the lineup. Look for Domi for play a solid game, contributing offensively, while limiting what he gives up defensively.
  • Martin Jones gets the start tonight with Samsonov getting the afternoon start on Monday. Jones hasn’t been great as of late, even though when he first joined the team he led the team to multiple wins. Look for Jones to play a calm game tonight and help give the Leafs a chance to win.
