3rd in the Atlantic, 10th in the NHL

Leafs to Keep an Eye on:

  • Auston Matthews has 48 goals in 52 games this season and has two back-to-back hat-tricks. Matthews is on pace for 75 goals this season and will look to be a difference maker once again today.
  • Bobby McMann has also been playing quite well lately. He scored a hat-trick against the Blues last week after starting the day as one of the healthy scratches. McMann has 5 goals in his last 3 games and is looking to add to that total as he looks to prove himself as an important part of this roster.
  • Marshall Rifai got called up to the Leafs with many of the team’s defensive core banged up. Rifai has been solid with the Marlies and plays a physical and defensive game. Keep an eye on Rifai, should he draw into the lineup today.
