"The Toronto Maple Leafs are enjoying a bit of a breather before they face off against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday. During practice on Wednesday, head coach Mike Babcock decided to make a couple of changes on his blueline. Recently we saw Morgan Rielly with Connor Carrick, Jake Gardiner with Roman Polak and Ron Hainsey with Nikita Zaitsev.Babcock has broken all that up and gone with some more familiar pairings.Rielly is back with Hainsey, Gardiner is paired up with Zaitsev and Carrick finds himself with Polak. Travis Dermott skated for about 15 minutes which is hopefully a good sign for the injured defenseman. Do you think Babcock will go back to these pairings for the playoffs?
