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.
I'm here to develop a winning culture and a winning team. There is a bright future ahead of this team. A lot of young, great hockey players here and on the way … a fan base that's passionate about the game of hockey.
— Dan Bylsma after being introduced as new coach of the Buffalo Sabres
