OTTAWA – Here are the projected lineups for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place on Saturday night. The Senators held their practice at their home arena, while the Maple Leafs elected to skate at Carleton University.
Coach Paul MacLean confirmed Michalek (knee) skated Saturday morning, but does not expect him to be available against Montreal on Monday. There was no update on Craig Anderson, who remains day-to-day with a right ankle sprain.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
