Here are the projected lines for Sunday night's game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place. Both teams held optional skates after playing on Saturday. The Sens beat the Rangers 5-4 in a shootout, while the Leafs held off the Penguins 4-3.
After being called up from Binghamton on Saturday to replace an injured Alex Auld, Robin Lehner will be getting his first NHL start this season, with Craig Anderson serving as backup. According to coach Paul MacLean, he decided to put Lehner in due to the Sens' heavy schedule, which features 4 games in the next 6 days.
There was no update on Daniel Alfredsson after receiving a hit to the head in Saturday’s game against the Rangers. He is still being evaluated.
Nikita Filatov was called up from Binghamton late Saturday night, but will not be playing against the Leafs.
I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
