After feverishly awaiting the first Leafs preseason game that took place last night in London between the Maple Leafs and Flyers, many Leafs fans were reminded that preseason hockey is generally a whole lot of scrubs, and some NHLers just shaking off the rust trying not to get hurt. While not the most entertaining product, and clearly nowhere near the quality of regular season NHL play, it was still hockey and at this point that’s all we could ask for.

Regardless, it was great to have hockey back in our lives. Everyone in attendance and watching at home was treated with the aforementioned sloppy play, but also got a glimpse of why Nazem kadri wanted to get paid the big bucks when he did what he does best. (Stupid videos not embedding)

The Leafs once again face off against the Flyers, this time at the Air Canada Centre. It will be Maple Leafs fans first glimpse of Johnathan Bernier in a Leafs uniform as he is scheduled to be the Leafs starter, and will likely play around half of the game like James Reimer did last night.

(Likely) Line Up:

It looks like fans in attendance will be treated to the Leafs top line skating together in tonight’s game as JVR, Tyler Bozak, and Phil Kessel were a line at morning skate.  David Clarkson, and Nikolai Kulemin round out the actual NHLers among tonight’s Leafs forwards. On the blue line, Jake Gardiner and Mark Fraser are the veterans that get the nod, while Morgan Rielly sees his second game of preseason action.

Leafs fans should keep an eye on Petter Granberg, a Swedish defenseman that has been touted as a dark horse candidate to break through into the Leafs line up this season. While it’s unlikely that he actually does make the team, watching him and Rielly skate together could give us a glimpse into the future of the Leafs blue line.
