Mike Santorelli scored his first goal as a Maple Leaf but it wasn't enough as Toronto lost 4-1 to Detroit on Friday night.

Santorelli and his line mates David Clarkson and Leo Komarov have brought some energy to the Leafs' lineup this season and they were rewarded with a goal. Unfortunately for Toronto, it was their only goal of the night. Santorelli is a former 20-goal scorer, but he is unlikely to reach that total given the circumstance he is in with Toronto. He now has two points in six games this season. Komarov and Clarkson picked up the assists on the goal.

Toronto's third line of Mike Santorelli, David Clarkson and Leo Komarov has been a favorite of coach Randy Carlyle early in the season.

"It's imperative that you get 'grind' going," Carlyle said. "You want to grind as much as you possibly can and get that wear-down type of hockey. Defending is different with the new rules. No hooking, no holding. It has to be part of our arsenal, a weapon for us." Komarov and Clarkson were credited with four hits apiece in Toronto's overtime win over Colorado on Tuesday. Santorelli has one assist and six shots in his first four games with the Leafs.

Mike Santorelli is projected to be paired with David Booth at training camp.

Coach Randy Carlyle is likely to place some new Leafs forwards with linemates who they are familiar with, so the former Canucks could end up as a tandem. Finns Petri Kontiola and Leo Komarov could form another duo. "There are things that are available to us," said Carlyle. "Are we going to be able to create three balanced scoring lines? Are we going to be able to create a fourth line that's going to have more energy and is going to be able to kill penalties on a regular basis? That's our mindset." The Leafs will have plenty of competition at camp for bottom-six forward roles.

Vancouver coach John Tortorella would not comment on Santorelli’s injury.
