The Maple Leafs, who are finishing a four-game road trip, are expected to have forward Trevor Moore back in the lineup. Moore has missed 12 games with a shoulder injury.

McDavid has 10 points (two goals, eight assist) in his past seven games.
They said it
"They obviously have a lot of good skill so it's important that we manage the puck, limit turnovers and try to take away from their transition game. They play with a lot of speed so I think it's important that everyone has to be responsible with it and we're not creating turnovers in our own zone and making sure we're not giving up chances-against." -- Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly
"I think we're doing a lot of good things. We're playing good hockey for a good chunk of the games lately but it's just not enough. We kind of shoot ourselves in the foot and then we kind of fight back and then we let it slip again. It's just a matter of sticking with it and building that winning mentality." -- Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl
