– Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said prior to the game that both Colton Orr and Mike Brown are available to play after recovering from lower body injuries. Given what happened in the Leafs last meeting with the Habs, it seems likely all of Toronto’s muscle will be in the lineup, meaning David Steckel will sit this one out. Mike Komisarek and John-Michael Liles are also likely scratches.
That leaves the Leafs lineup likely looking like so:
Do they have anybody at all that could line up against Mclaren or Orr? I don't see it happening, which is weird given what happened last game. Not saying it's good or bad but against any of 28 other teams one or both of them would be challenged this game for sure.
Kaberle is in the lineup.. Diaz is out Should be interesting.
I don't like the fact that habs want revenge and have two players in the lineup that will be working extremely hard to make an impression in Kabs and Ryder.. Kinda makes you think the leafs will lose .. especially if they come in over confident. Strong start very important
