Paul Hendrick and Joe Bowen get you set for tonight's game with their preview from Pittsburgh. Tune into the game on City TV and TSN 1050. 2:00 PM
Leafs TV's Paul Hendrick sat down with Leafs forward Nick Spaling earlier this week. Take a look at this 1-on-1 interview. 11:00 AM:
The Maple Leafs complete the second leg of a back-to-back tonight in Pittsburgh when they take on the Penguins at CONSOL Energy Center at 7 PM.
Toronto earned their first win of the season on Friday night with a 6-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Leafs got goals from five scorers -- Jake Gardiner, James van Riemsdyk, Nazem Kadri, Joffrey Lupul each had one while Leo Komarov had a pair. James Reimer made 24 saves to earn the win.
The Penguins also enter tonight's game having earned their first win of the season on Thursday night with a 2-0 result against the Ottawa Senators. Evgeni Malkin and Daniel Sprong scored a pair of goals within 2:02 early in the second period to provide the extent of the offence that night. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 22 shots to earn the shutout.
The Leafs will not hold a morning skate in Pittsburgh due to the back-to-back so expect updates from Pittsburgh to come in later than usual. Projected lineups, thoughts from Coach and the Leafs and more will be on the way.
