Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Phil Housley said on Thursday that the players in Group 1 would likely play in Toronto on Friday and that is going to be the case. That means players like Jack Eichel and Rasmus Dahlin will play the Leafs here on Saturday.

Linus Ullmark will get his second preseason start in goal. Against Columbus the netminder stopped 20 of 21 shots in the 40 minutes he worked. That's a 1.50 goals against and .952 save percentage. Amerks goaltender Adam Wilcox will back him up.

The Leafs should have John Tavares in their lineup, but not Auston Matthews.

 

Friday’s lines:

92 Nylander - 37 Mittelstadt - 72 Thompson

28 Girgensons - 17 Sobotka - 52 Oglevie

49 Smith - 12 Porter - 13 Baptiste  (Could be Rochester’s top line this season)

41 Olofsson - 74 Asplund - 46 Cornel

 

45 Guhle - 8 Nelson

24 Pilut - 5 Tennyson

44 Hickey - 38 Redmond

 

Join Brian Koziol at 7:30 as he’ll get you ready followed by the play-by-play with Dan Dunleavy and Rob Ray.
