The Winnipeg Jets are in Toronto looking to play the spoiler role tonight in a 6:00ct start at Air Canada Centre.
The (34-34-10) Jets have 78 points and were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention following Thursday's loss at home to Pittsburgh.
Ondrej Pavelec will start in goal.  He has a 8-4-2 record in 14 games lifetime against the Leafs.
Following this morning's pregame skate, head coach Paul Maurice said he has "a couple of game-time decisions" to make with his lineup.
Devin Setoguchi took Bryan Little's center spot with Andrew Ladd and Michael Frolik during this morning's skate, however Maurice confirmed Little will play.
Jets Projected Lines:
The (38-32-8) Maple Leafs have 84 points and trail Columbus by one point for an Eastern Conference Wild Card playoff spot.
James Reimer will start in goal.
Toronto is expected to dress 11 forwards and seven defencemen.
Maple Leafs Projected Lines:
van Riemsdyk-Bozak-Kessel

Cody Franson is on a three-game point streak (one goal and three assists).
The Leafs have the number one power play on home ice in the NHL at 25 per cent, while the Jets penalty kill on the road is third in the NHL at 86 per cent.
This is the second and final meeting of the season between these teams.  Dustin Byfuglien scored the overtime winner January 25 at MTS Centre for a 5-4 Winnipeg win.
