Sparks' injuries seem to have suffered when he was killed when he hit him directly in the chest, and Andersen was injured. doing something worse than expected.
Both newly-converted Kasimir Kaskisu and Michael Hutchinson, Hutchinson, were able to get her. first afternoon.
Hutchinson played his first game with the Marlies on New Year's Eve, a & # 39; earning his first profit in Toronto. After going up 4-1, Toronto collapsed and the Charlotte researchers had to counterattack before the winning winner Chris Mueller defeated 5-4. Hutchinson gave one of the stars despite four, and Marlies would not have much of the chance to get to OT at third without.
The Leafs will also have nine main components of their last trips. William Nylander, who still has the two help he has returned, has come to Auston Matthews, with Andreas Johnsson. go into their shield. We heard a lot of theories about playing Nylander since he introduced a six-year contract with the team but, in fact, he would always need a month to get his feet up to full speed; Even though, it is the team's guide in on-the-fly attacks that have been generated in the eleven games and games; Seated a third in creating opportunities created. It's just a while before it's done; break out, and play along with an experienced running companion (as well as LW who has been playing regularly and offering a skill / re-connecting ability in The Johnsson) if we hope it will be supportive of that.
Talk about being & # 39; Looking to break out, the Wild has a bad problem at the last time. They are the type of team that plays independently and theirs; Removing room from teams that oppose each other away by a & # 39; using the neutral range.

On the other hand, if the Readers can be & # 39; break out quickly and play rapidly through the neutral range, the hard time of the Wild with them.
The last time these two teams played each other in the early December, the Wild had been playing on play, but the Leafan still captured Score 5-3. Babcock was not happy afterwards and noted that some of the features of the Wild to their game to see the Leaves are much larger than playing time. Playing against these types of teams is an ongoing process for this Leaf team; they will definitely seek a better effort than the last trip – when Minnesota controlled more than 60% of the performance turns and just gave 23 shows – with a new visitor in a web that is not familiar with the systems of the team and new team members; swords.

Babcock on Next-Gen game:
I think we 're going to; doing a great job here in Toronto with our fans and children and doing our best for their & game was sold. I think Mr Tanenbaum is really real, it's a special thing. I know from being just involved in our national team and seeing World Youth Workers and all of those things, how big & he is to Canada.
Auston Matthews on the Wild:
They have a very good team, they do not give you much room. They stay overnight all night. When they look at our team, it's obvious that there is a lot of skill, a lot of talent ahead – that's the kind of team they've got to do; You may be able to pay if you get too tough and take the puck over their hands because they are & # 39; there are plenty of people who can put the puck in the net on the other way.
