The Toronto Maple Leafs are going through a bit of a funk having lost two in a row and three of their last four. The Leafs will have it tough tonight as they face the Philadelphia Flyers who are fighting for a playoff spot with everything they have left. Philly has a game in hand on Montreal who has 81 points while Philly sits with 76. Along with the struggles, the Leafs have been dealing with injuries and head coach Mike Babcock announced his lineup plans for tonight. -- Frederik Andersen gets the start despite being pulled for two games in a row. "I think for all us, getting a good slapping once in awhile is a good thing; you adjust and you get back at it."
-- Justin Holl will draw into the lineup while Igor Ozhiganov will be a healthy scratch. Babcock explained his defensive depth chart at the moment. "Marincin gets the call [right now] because he's left-handed," but, "We think Dermott is probably ahead of Gardiner coming back, and he's taking one of those spots."
Zach Hyman will be a game time decision. Both Kasperi Kapanen and Travis Dermott skated early this morning.
