The Bruins are traveling, playing the Maple Leafs at the Scotia Bank Arena.
After 7 games, the Bruins are at 5-1-1, which is good for 2nd place in the Atlantic, most recently losing to the Lightning in a shootout.
What will be the lineup tonight?
The Bruins still have some nagging injuries.
Defensemen Kevan Miller and John Moore are still on Injured Reserve and Long-term Injured Reserve respectively, providing playing time for Matt Grzelcyk and Connor Clifton.
Joakim Nordstrom – who returned vs Colorado, and David Krejci – who left the Ducks game with an upper body injury – did not travel with the team. Charlie Coyle will center the DeBrusk-Kuhlman line, and Par Lindholm will take his spot.
David Backes will skate on the 4th line.
Jaro Halak will be in goal.

Toronto has not faced the Bruins since losing Game 7 of the first round of the playoffs. They’ve moved a bunch of players in the offseason. Zaitsev traded out, Cody Ceci in. Par Lindholm is now a Bruin and Nazem Kadri is in the other conference, Tyson Barrie is there. Jason Spezza is now a Leaf, as is trade deadline acquisition Jake Muzzin. There is a non trivial injury that is new — John Tavares is out with a broken finger. That will shuffle the lines quite a bit. Also, Zach Hyman and Travis Dermott are still injured from the playoffs.
