Game #49 – Hawks vs. Maple Leafs: Lineups & How They Were Built

Hawks 

Notes: Even though the morning skate was optional the buzz was Crow will get a chance to double-up on his brilliance in Montreal…Hagel has been called up but not sure where or if he’ll slot in just yet or if he’s just an extra guy. If he does play, it’s likely to be ahead of Sikura…Saad was also rumored to have a chance to play, so if he does he’ll likely go with Toews and Kubalik and slot Caggiula down to the fourth line as well. Or maybe Cags will join DeBrincat and Dach, which makes more sense than Kampf…

Maple Leafs

Notes: Leafs didn’t skate this morning either, so this is how it looked on Thursday against the Flames…Engvall was hurt in that one but did return, so we think he’s in for this one as well…Tavares has five points in his last three games…Andersen has been struggling, with a .904 in December and a .893 in December. The Leafs are hot after a backup goalie to give him a breather…
