Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul took line rushes during warmups and will return to the lineup. Lupul missed the game Thursday against the Boston Bruins with a lower-body injury; Jerry D'Amigo will be scratched to make room for him.
Jets forward Evander Kane did not take warmups and will be a healthy scratch. Jets coach Paul Maurice told CBC's Hockey Night in Canada before the start of the game that "it was just a coach's decision" to sit Kane.
Kane has 17 goals and 22 assists this season in 60 games, but has two goals and eight assists since the 2014 Sochi Olympic break, a span of 18 games.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
