Meanwhile, the Canadiens announced they have recalled defenceman Otto Leskinen from the AHL's Laval Rocket and assigned him to the taxi squad.

Carey Price will start in net Monday despite taking a shot off his blocker hand that forced him to leave the morning skate early.


Toronto Maple Leafs

Goaltender Jack Campbell was in the starters' net Monday ahead of Toronto's evening matchup with the Calgary Flames.

Michael Hutchinson stopped 32 of 34 shots in the Leafs' 4-2 victory over Calgary Sunday night.


Calgary Flames

Defenceman Juuso Valimaki will be a healthy scratch for the Flames on Monday as they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs, reports TSN's Salim Valji.

It will be the fourth time in 14 games the 22-year-old blueliner has been scratched under new head coach Darryl Sutter.

"Sutter said he's got a lot of work to do to become a regular NHLer and it's likely an off-season process more than anything," Valji tweets.


Edmonton Oilers

Head coach Dave Tippett told reporters he is going with the same lineup that beat Calgary last Wednesday with goalie Mike Smith starting between the pipes.

Here were their lines Monday morning according to TSN's Ryan Rishaug.








Smith starts
