Gila River Arena – Glendale, AZTV: Sportsnet Ontario
The Toronto Maple Leafs head into Arizona tonight looking to take two points from the Arizona Coyotes to help them keep pace with the surging Boston Bruins in the Atlantic Division. The Bruins have won five in a row and have caught the Leafs in the standings as they're both tied with 45 points. The Leafs hopefully step up to the plate as they're just 2-4-0 in their past six games and 5-5-0 in their last 10. Leafs star Auston Matthews will play his second game in his home state while Mitch Marner will look to continue his hot streak having registered six points during a three game point streak. Marner also has 10 points in his past eight games. The Coyotes will be playing their second game in a row after beating the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday 3-1. Frederik Andersen gets the start for the Leafs while Scott Wedgewood should get the start for the Coyotes giving Antti Raanta a breather. Here's a look at tonight's probable rosters.
