Predators, Leafs face off looking for second-half surge

The Toronto Maple Leafs blazed a trail up the NHL standings during a sizzling 9-0-1 stretch before losing five of their last six games (1-3-2) heading into the All-Star break.

After falling four points out of a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, the Maple Leafs aim to cut into that deficit on Monday when they visit the Nashville Predators.

Auston Matthews sat out the All-Star Game due to an ailing wrist, however he is expected to be back in the lineup against the Predators. Matthews is tied for second in the NHL with 34 goals this season and is on pace to reach 57 tallies, which would break the franchise record of 54 set by Rick Vaive (1981-82).
