Potential lineups for Maple Leafs, Devils
TORONTO -- The Toronto Maple Leafs did not skate this morning, so it is not certain what their lineup will look like, but it's unlikely they'll change much from Monday's game against the New York Rangers.

One notable absence likely will be forward Mikhail Grabovski, whose girlfriend went into labor yesterday.

MAPLE LEAFS
Joffrey Lupul - Tyler Bozak - Phil Kessel
Clarke MacArthur - Tim Connolly - Matt Frattin
Joey Crabb - Joe Colborne - Nikolai Kulemin
Jay Rosehill - David Steckel - Philippe Dupuis

Carl Gunnarsson - Dion Phaneuf
Jake Gardiner - Luke Schenn
John-Michael Liles - Cody Franson
 
James Reimer will start in goal, with Jonas Gustavsson the backup.

DEVILS
Ilya Kovalchuk - Zack Parise - Adam Henrique
Mattias Tedenby - Patrik Elias - Petr Sykora
Dainius Zubrus - Ryan Carter - David Clarkson
Eric Boulton - Tim Sestito - Nick Palmieri

Andy Greene - Anton Volchenkov
Henrik Tallinder - Mark Fayne
Bryce Salvador - Adam Larsson

Martin Brodeur will start in goal, with Johan Hedberg the backup.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
