ToHN Daily: John Tavares, Ondrej Kase game-time decisions at Philadelphia




Toronto Maple Leafs forwards John Tavares and Ondrej Kase are game-time decisions for tonight’s game in Philadelphia.

John Tavares is the Maple Leafs’ leading scorer this season, with 13 points (7 G, 6 A) in 13 games. Kase has just two points (1 G, 1 A) but has been a reliable checker and has earned more time on the penalty kill recently.

The Maple Leafs had already promoted Kirill Semyonov and Joey Anderson from the AHL when Petr Mrazek was placed on LTIR, so they might see their first NHL action of the season.

Defenceman Justin Holl is making his return to the Toronto lineup as well. He has been a healthy scratch for the past five games.
