"The Toronto Maple Leafs head into Washington tonight looking for their third straight win. Toronto has tightened things up a bit after their terrible performance against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Head coach Mike Babcock made a lineup change last night against the Minnesota Wild mid-game and he's going to keep it around, for now. The Leafs' head coach announced that Trevor Moore will stick with John Tavares and Mitch Marner on the team's first line. While it means that Kasperi Kapanen gets a demotion to the team's third line, it's also a good thing because Kapanen returns to his more natural right wing position. Jason Spezza gets the enjoyment of watching another game from the press box, which continues to be a situation to monitor. Babcock confirmed that Michael Hutchinson will get the start in net while Capitals goalie prospect Ilya Samsonov will start for Washington. Here's a look at tonight's full projected lineup:Moore - Tavares - Marner
Johnsson - Matthews - Nylander
Mikheyev - Kerfoot - Kapanen
Timashov - Shore - Gauthier
Rielly - Ceci
Muzzin - Barrie
Marincin - Holl
