"The Toronto Maple Leafs are on absolute fire right now riding a three game win streak and sitting at 7-3-0 in their last 10 games. Frederik Andersen gets the start for the Leafs and he'll be looking for his sixth straight win, the Leafs goalie has a 1.20 goals against average and .966 save percentage during that span. Andersen and the Leafs' defense are on the same page as the team has allowed one goal or fewer in five of their past six games. Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly is making a serious push for a Norris trophy early on in the season, the Leafs 24 year old defenseman has seven points in his last five games and currently leads all NHL defenseman in points. "We've got a challenge tonight. They can really skate and they're big and physical. We're not taking them lightly, that's for sure, because we think they're pretty darn good." Rielly said regarding the matchup tonight.
On the Blue Jackets' side of things, Sergei Bobrovsky gets the start and he's won three straight games, and like the Leafs, the Blue Jackets have been tight defensively having only allowed one goal in four of their last six games with a 5-0-1 record. Forward Cam Atkinson was named the NHL's first star of the week and had a hat trick against Carolina Saturday. Here's a look both team's projected lineups for tonight:Maple Leafs projected lineup
