Pre-Season Double Header vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Open Thread

The first open thread of the year!


Wow, it feels good (and unfamiliar) to say that. Sure it’s pre-season, sure there are going to be plenty of players in both line-ups that might not even sniff NHL action this year, but it’s the real thing. And, as a bonus, we get not one but two match-ups to delight in.

Game #1 is 1pm ET, Game #2 is 7pm ET.

Game 1 Line-up. Cam Talbot and Kevin Mandolese are expected to split the duties.

Antoine Bibeau, Tomas Hamara and Philippe Daoust are the scratches

Game 2 Line-up. Goalies have not yet been announced for this, but expected split between Anton Forsberg and Mads Sogaaard. No other line-up details are available.
