For the visiting Leafs, James van Riemsdyk (JVR) will play alongside Nazem Kadri, and Morgan Rielly will attempt to continue impressing the coaching staff. Jonathan Bernier will get the start in goal.
Toronto is 1-1 on the pre-season, after splitting the first 2 games with the Philadelphia Flyers, each game was decided by a single goal.
