Tim Erixon is a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against Washington.

Erixon was claimed by the Maple Leafs on waivers earlier on Sunday and he didn't make it in time for the game. With the Leafs all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, Erixon will probably see some decent playing time.
Mar 1 - 7:02 PM

Trevor Smith (lower-body) won't play in Sunday's game against Washington.

Smith should be considered day-to-day. The 30-year-old has two goals and four points in 39 games this season.
Mar 1 - 6:59 PM

James Reimer will get the start vs. Washington on Sunday.

Jonathan Bernier got the start in Montreal last night and lost so the Leafs will turn to Reimer tonight. The 26-year-old has a 7-13-0 record with a 3.15 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage. He has just one win since mid-December.
Mar 1 - 5:21 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have claimed Tim Erixon on waivers from Chicago.

The Hawks acquired Erixon in a trade with Columbus earlier this season but his tenure there wasn't very long. The 24-year-old has one goal and six points in 27 games in 2014-15.

Dion Phaneuf had four penalty minutes in Toronto’s 4-0 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night.

Feb 28 - 10:08 PM

Jonathan Bernier made 19 saves in Toronto’s 4-0 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night.

Bernier gave up two goals in the first and one in the third, with the final one going in with the net empty. Bernier has had an up-and-down season, with a 2.72 goals-against average and .915 save percentage.
Feb 28 - 10:07 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks waived defenseman Tim Erixon on Saturday, likely in part because of acquisition of Kimmo Timonen.

Erixon was unable to score in eight games with the Blackhawks while he generated six points during his 19 games with the Columbus Blue Jackets this season. He was the 23rd pick of the 2009 NHL Draft.
Feb 28 - 12:36 PM

Trevor Smith won't play against Montreal Saturday night.

He is still nursing a lower-body injury. That said, Smith is making progress in his recovery and a return to action Sunday against Washington is a possibility.
Feb 28 - 11:50 AM

Stephane Robidas will play Saturday night against Montreal despite missing Saturday morning's skate.

The Leafs' veteran defenseman was given the morning off for family reasons. If for some reason you need Robidas, keep him in your lineup.
Feb 28 - 11:46 AM

Jonathan Bernier will get the start against Montreal Saturday night.

After not winning a game for 10 straight games, Bernier has won two in a row. He will be in tough against Montreal and the superlative Carey Price. If you feel lucky, start Bernier.
Feb 28 - 11:38 AM

Petter Granberg has been sent down by Toronto.

Granberg was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game versus Philadelphia. He has skated in six games with the Maple Leafs this season.
Feb 27 - 11:08 AM

Tyler Bozak generated a goal and an assist in Toronto's 3-2 win versus Philadelphia.

He has 17 goals and 39 points in 61 games this campaign. Bozak had a great start to the year, but he struggled to produce during Toronto's descent down the standings.
Feb 27 - 11:05 AM

Dion Phaneuf potted a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 win over Philadelphia.

The Leafs captain missed 12 games with a hand injury before making his return on Thursday. His third marker of the year held up as the game winner. Phaneuf logged 25:28 of ice time, while posting four shots and five blocks.
Feb 27 - 11:02 AM

Phil Kessel's goal and assist on Thursday night lifted the Leafs to a 3-2 victory over the Flyers.

It was Kessel's first two-point effort since Jan. 9 and just his fifth and sixth points in that 19 games span. The Leafs' sniper, who has 50 points in 61 games this season, is looking to get back on his point-per-game track.
