Report: Lupul out for Maple Leafs' game Saturday
Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul did not practice Friday and won't be in the lineup Saturday against the Devils, according to reports.

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul did not practice Friday and won't be in the lineup for the game Saturday against the New Jersey Devils (7 p.m. ET, CBC), according to reports.

Left Wing - TOR
GOALS: 8 | ASST: 6 | PTS: 14
SOG: 29 | +/-: 9
The news initially was reported by James Mirtle of the (Toronto) Globe & Mail.

Lupul has played in 10 games this season due to a broken forearm suffered Jan. 23 against the Pittsburgh Penguins as well as a two-game suspension, but he's been electric when on the ice.

Lupul has at least one point in each of the seven games he's played since returning from his arm injury, totaling eight goals and six assists.

The Maple Leafs enter Friday sixth in the Eastern Conference with 44 points.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
