Toronto are coming into this game on the back of a 3-1 win on home-ice against the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night. It was a second straight win for the Maple Leafs after what has been a generally inconsistent start to the season.

The win over the Kings came through goals from Alexander Kerfoot, Auston Matthews and William Nylander, while goalie Frederik Andersen made 24 stops. Another encouraging sign for Toronto was the return of captain John Tavares after having missed seven games with a broken finger.

On the stats front, Matthews has 12 goals and 18 points for Toronto, while Mitch Marner has 13 assists.

Having lost two straight games in overtime on home-ice, Vegas returned to winning ways with a 2-1 win on the road at the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night. Reilly Smith scored both goals for the Golden Knights, with Marc-Andre Fleury making 29 saves. 

Those two goals took Smith’s tally for the season to nine, while Mark Stone has contributed 18 points and William Karlsson has 12 assists.
