Bring on Texas and the Big Beat……..( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgssdCS8VpU )
Leafs are coming off a HUGE win in Chicago just two nights ago. Maybe it wasn’t huge but who doesn’t love a seemingly endless supply of offense? I know I loved it.
After a day away from the rink, the Leafs (2-1-0) are ready to get back after it versus the Stars (2-0-0).
Frederik Andersen looks to return to the twine teepee after an ‘OK’ job by Garret Sparks during that 7-6 track meet on Madison.
Other lineup changes see Frederik Gauthier going to get some time at Center. Par Lindholm will move to the wing, and Andreas Johnsson takes a seat in chateau bow wow.
Here are the lines.
Lines at Leafs morning skate:

Stars will have familiar faces Connor Carrick and Roman Polak in the lineup this evening for the home team. Look for one, or both, to make their presence known tonite with some physical play.
Carrick definitely wants to send a message to Coach Babcock.
Auston Matthews coming off a four point night. John Tavares coming off a hatty.
Who steps up next? Can Kapanen keep up the pace with Matthews? Can Babcock get Kadri more minutes?
So much fun to watch…..and so many storylines.
