Nazem Kadri scored a goal and added an assist for the Maple Leafs in a 3-1 victory over the Lightning Tuesday.

Trying to salvage what has been an arduous season, Kadri broke a personal five-game scoring drought in this contest. Morgan Rielly and David Booth also found the back of the net for the Leafs in the rare win.

James Reimer was excellent Tuesday as he stopped 40 of 41 shots en route to a 3-1 win over the Lightning.

Reimer brought his strong home record into the contest and skated away with a victory, rewarding the few fantasy owners willing to put their trust in him. His home record improves to 6-2-0 with the victory while his overall mark is now 9-15-0.

Casey Bailey and Brandon Kozun will be scratched against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

Unfortunately, neither player has much fantasy value this season. It's unclear how much ice time Bailey will receive. He has just one game to his credit, and it was without notable production. Kozun meanwhile has produced just four points and 21 hits over his 20 games.

James Reimer will get the call versus Tampa Bay on Tuesday night.

Reimer has a mark of 5-2-0 in seven starts at Air Canada Centre this season, but he'll face a tough task with the Lightning in town. He has eight wins, a .902 save percentage and a 3.23 goals-against average in 32 appearances this campaign.

T.J. Brennan is back up with the Maple Leafs on an emergency basis.

In four games with Toronto this campaign, Brennan has no points and a minus-6 rating.
Mar 30 - 12:53 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have assigned T.J. Brennan to the AHL.

The Marlies are in a heated playoff race so having Brennan in the lineup will certainly help them make a push.
Mar 29 - 1:24 PM

T.J. Brennan has been impressed with the play of William Nylander.

Brennan and Nylander are teammates with the Toronto Marlies in the AHL. "He does stuff out there I have not learned yet," Brennan said. "At that age, I felt like I was still getting my diapers changed. It should be exciting for the Leafs to have him in the organization." Nylander has collected seven goals and 10 assists in 26 games with the Marlies this season. He appears to be a must-own in dynasty leagues.

Casey Bailey was a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

The Leafs won the game 4-3 in overtime on a goal by Eric Brewer. Bailey made his NHL debut on Thursday night against Florida but he didn't necessarily leave his mark on that game. He was held pointless and shotless in the contest. It will be interesting to see how the Leafs use Bailey with the season winding down.

Eric Brewer scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Ottawa.

The Leafs dealt the Sens playoff chances a blow by picking up the second point in the standings. Phil Kessel found Tyler Bozak in the slot and he rang the puck off the post but Brewer was there to put in the rebound. The goal was Brewer's first as a member of the Maple Leafs and just his second on the season. The 35-year-old finished the game with a plus-2 rating, one shot on goal, two hits and a blocked shot in 20:57 of action against the Sens on Saturday.

Phil Kessel had three assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators.

The Leafs' top forward has been going through a tough stretch in the last little while so fantasy owners will welcome the big offensive production. Kessel picked up the assists on Tyler Bozak's first two goals (he finished the night with three) and he also assisted on Eric Brewer's game-winning goal in overtime. The 27-year-old had no points in his previous four contests. Kessel now has 24 goals and 57 points in 76 games this season.

Trevor Smith (undisclosed) returned to action on Saturday.

Smith missed one game with the undisclosed injury which is becoming as popular an injury in the NHL as an upper or lower injury. He took a minor in 16:23 minutes of action.
Mar 29 - 2:05 AM

Zach Sill (undisclosed) returned to action on Saturday.

Sill was held off the scoresheet on Saturday. His feisty play has been a boon to the Maple Leafs and he could receive a contract extension from Toronto at the end of the season as they need players like him.
Mar 29 - 2:05 AM

Tyler Bozak broke out for three goals and an assist in the Maple Leafs’ 4-3 overtime win against the Senators on Saturday night.

Bozak had last scored March 11 and had two goals (and two points) in March. Toronto erased a 3-1 third-period deficit in this one, with Bozak scoring three in the third to tie it up. Bozak has 22 goals and 45 points in 76 games this season, so even though he’s finally been healthy he hasn’t exactly produced at a high clip. Eric Brewer scored the other goal, while Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk chipped in with three assists apiece.
Mar 28 - 10:05 PM

James Reimer made 22 saves in Toronto’s 4-3 overtime win against the Senators on Saturday night.

Reimer wasn’t all that good in this game; in fact, he would’ve lost had Toronto not come back to tie up the game with 1:24 remaining. He gave up two goals on nine shots on the first period. Reimer has a 3.23 goals-against average and .902 save percentage this season.

It looks as if Sam Carrick will get to dress again for the Maple Leafs.

He scored his first NHL goal Thursday in a 4-1 loss to the Panthers and will get another shot on the Buds' fourth line. Although Zach Sill seems to have recovered from injury and indicated he is ready to return, it may not be Saturday night as Carrick will likely draw in in his place.
