Orr out, Steckel likely in for Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Colton Orr took part in the morning skate but was ruled out of action against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday because of a lower-body injury. Because of the injury to Orr, it is expected that David Steckel will center the fourth line. It will be the first time Steckel has played since Feb, 14.

Goaltender James Reimer was also on the ice briefly before he left for the dressing room. Reimer injured his knee against the Philadelphia Flyers on Feb. 11, but is inching closer to returning.

Here is the Maple Leafs' projected lineup for Thursday's game:

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
