GAME DAY REPORT: CANUCKS @ LEAFS | Leafs Hub
The return of Josh Leivo will have to wait as the former Toronto Maple Leaf is out with an upper body injury. He's fit in well in Vancouver by all accounts, and that's great if you ask me. Josh never won over Mike Babcock in Toronto but was always a good teammate. I wish him luck. Jacob Markstrom gets the start tonight for Vancouver. Markstrom has won 9 of his past 11 starts, and the two losses can't be placed on his shoulders as he allowed a combined 3 goals on 51 shots. Elias Pettersson, the extremely skilled rookie centre, also won't be in the lineup. That's great news for Toronto goalie Michael Hutchinson and the rest of the Leafs, as a ton of their offense runs through him. He was injured on Thursday in a game against the Montreal Canadians, so thanks for that Montreal. If the Canucks want to be successful tonight they're going to have to clog up the neutral zone and transition quickly. Getting a ton of rubber on net would also be a great idea. They have some veteran defenders
