Leafs vs. Red Wings Primer

by Staff Writer / Toronto Maple Leafs




The Maple Leafs will be looking to finish the preseason with their third straight win as they close out the home-and-home with the Detroit Red Wings.

On Friday, the Leafs and Red Wings had a see-saw battle with Mike Brown forcing overtime as he scored just 1:06 after Detroit had taken a 3-2 lead. Brown scored two goals in his first preseason game of the year.

An unlikely goal scorer in Mike Komisarek scored the overtime winner as the Leafs defeated Detroit 4-3.  Komisarek and partner Jake Gardiner combined for four points in the win.

Jonas Gustavsson made 26 saves to pick up his first win of the preseason. Watch the game in six minutes.
