The end of the beginning, the appetizer of the regular season dish; whatever you call it, this is the last preseason game before the Maple Leafs kick off the NHL regular season next Wednesday. There’s a lot at stake tonight for the few players still vying for one of those last permanent spots on the roster. What we should see tonight, with the exception of Auston Matthews still missing with his recovering wrist, is what the squad will look like next Wednesday, with just a couple of changes. Here is our preview as an aperitif for the game:
Leafs lines for the preseason finals
Ritchie – Kampf – Marner
Mikheyev – Tavares – Nylander
Bunting – Kerfoot – Kase
Engvall – Spezza – Simmonds
Rielly – Brodie
Muzzin – Holl
Sandin – Dermott
Campbell starts and will play the whole game

Speaking of appetizers.
Which Thanksgiving appetizer describes what you’ve thought of the Leafs preseason so far?
The cheese plate: very expensive for the price
Olives and Pickles: it’s an acquired taste; a little sour sometimes
Cold cuts: delicious, but they do not replace the meat of the main course
Raw vegetables and dip: nothing special, but someone took the trouble to put some there, so you have to put some on your plate and smile
I didn’t watch anything. Appetizers take away valuable space in the stomach for stuffing and turkey.
