"The hype is real and things are getting interesting as the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Ottawa Senators tonight at Scotiabank Arena. There's plenty of storylines heading into tonight, the Leafs naming a captain sometime today, the Sens possibly going after Matthews and it looks like head coach Mike Babcock just added another one with his lineup decisions.Earlier during training camp, Babcock made some comments that gave you the impression that he wasn't a fan of Jason Spezza, tonight's lineup might confirm that. According to today's practice lines, Spezza will be a healthy scratch tonight as the fourth line featured Dmytro Timashov, Nick Shore and Frederik Gauthier. Justin Holl and Timothy Liljegren look like the scratches on the blue line. Here's the full lineup from today's practice:Kapanen-Tavares-Marner
Johnsson-Matthews-Nylander
