"The Toronto Maple Leafs are in Montreal tonight to take on the Canadiens and the Leafs' are looking for just their second preseason win.

While it's only preseason, it's still a good time for veterans to get the gears going again and the head coach received a bit of criticism for tonight's lineup. Babcock said he's using tonight's lineup as a real test. "(It's to) put a bunch of people under a serious amount of duress. In other words, you're going to be playing against NHL players and there's no (other NHL) guys on your team there to help you — you're by yourself.»Here's another look at tonight's lineup:Agostino-Shore-Petan
