Auston Matthews (upper body) might be available to play Tuesday.

Matthews sat out Sunday's game after he collided with teammate Morgan Rielly in Pittsburgh on Saturday. We should get a clearer picture of his status after the Leafs' morning skate. Stay tuned.

Curtis McElhinney stopped all 41 shots he faced on Sunday night as the Leafs squeezed by the Oilers 1-0.

McElhinney made 11 power-play stops and played a remarkable game to steal the Leafs two points in the standings. The veteran netminder improves to 3-2-0 this season with a 2.44 goals-against average and .925 save percentage

William Nylander will slot in at center on Sunday night against Edmonton.

Auston Matthews will sit out the Maple Leafs’ tilt with the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.

The Maple Leafs star is dealing with an upper-body injury from Saturday night's win over Pittsburgh. With 13 goals and 13 assists in 26 games, the Leafs will surely miss the 20-year-old when they take on Connor McDavid and the Oilers.
