"It all starts tonight, what everybody's been waiting for, the opening night of the 2018-19 NHL season. The Toronto Maple Leafs will host the Montreal Canadiens at Scotia Bank Arena as John Tavares will make his debut in a Leafs' uniform. The Leafs took to the ice for practice this morning and we were able to see who tonight's healthy scratches will be. No surprises up front as everything stays in place and the fourth line will feature Johnsson, Lindholm and Kapanen and Gauthier will be the scratch.With the Leafs carrying eight defenseman to start the season a lot of questions about who would be the top six to start the season. Martin Marincin and Justin Holl won't be a part of the the top six as they'll both be healthy scratches tonight. Frederik Andersen gets the start for the Leafs and he'll go up against Carey Price.Here's a look at the full lineup:FORWARDSMarleau-Matthews-Ennis
