Defenceman Jake Gardiner is expected play alongside John-Michael Liles tonight. James Reimer, who sat the last two games is expected to start. Defenceman Mike Komisarek has been placed on waivers. If he is not claimed, the 31-year-old will report to the Toronto Marlies. - TSN
Big game tonight. We need a W tonight to get this ship going back in the right direction. I don't want to see a win like the one we had against Ottawa (seems like ages ago). We need to play a full 60 minutes and win the individual battles. A win is nice but we need a full team effort for me to get some trust back in this team.
after that first line their team looks pretty horrible... do we have the guys to shut down that first line though?
Watch out for the pipe-line (Palat-Johnson-Tyrell) they will definitely change your mind on that, all have speed to burn too. Fastest line in the NHL.

3 top 9 forwards out will do that to you, we are currently playing the most rookies in the NHL AFAIK, Killorn, Conacher, Palat, Johnson and Gudas. Panik has also made an appearance earlier in the season.
