The Toronto Maple Leafs (33-16-8) vs. The Vegas Golden Knights (32-17-7) at Scotiabank Arena.

Toronto returns home after going 4-0 on last week’s road trip. Toronto and Vegas met last Thursday, which saw the Leafs beat the Golden Knights 7-3.

The Leafs are currently on a seven-game winning streak. It’s Toronto’s longest winning streak since 2003. The club record is 10 games during the 1993-94 season.

Max Domi, Tyler Bertuzzi, and William Nylander’s line has been great. All three players were on the scoresheet Saturday. Domi and Nylander had assists, and Tyler Bertuzzi scored a hat-trick.

Mitch Marner is quietly on a 10-game point streak. Meanwhile, his linemate, Auston Matthews, is on a six-game point streak.

Mark Giordano (personal) will return to the lineup tonight.

Timothy Liljegren will miss the game due to an injury he is considered day-to-day.

The Leafs recalled Joseph Woll yesterday. Woll practiced with the team but will not start or back up.

The Golden Knights will once again be without Mark Stone and Jack Eichel. Vegas is on a three-game losing streak. They are 4-5-1 in their last 10 games.

Adin Hill will be in the net for Vegas. He started last week against Toronto, but he was pulled in the first period after allowing three goals on 20 shots.

In the net for Toronto will be Ilya Samsonov. Samsonov is 9-1 with a 2.19 GAA and .915 save percentage since returning to the Leafs lineup.

The game starts at 7:00 p.m. on TSN4.
