TV: SportsnetThe Toronto Maple Leafs will try and get things back on track after a tough loss in Pittsburgh on Saturday. The Leafs gave up two third period goals and lost 5-3, only their second loss in their last 11 games. After a rough December and January, the team has put together an incredible run during February and have scored four or more goals in seven of their last 10 games. The Red Wings on the other hand look like they'll be missing the playoffs once again and are just barely playing .500 hockey. Wings forward Frans Nielsen has been one of the few bright spots lately with eight points in his last seven games. Both Nazem Kadri and Mitch Marner have been on a tear recently as Kadri has 15 points in his last 11 games and Marner has eight points in his last four games. Curtis McElhinney is the confirmed starter for the Leafs while Jimmy Howard is expected to start for the Red Wings.Neither team skated on Sunday, any changes will probably be game time decisions.
