The Leafs take on the New York Islanders tonight and Jonathan Bernier will start for Toronto. Bernier was pulled after the first period of a 6-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Saturday when he allowed three goals on 17 shots. The loss was the Leafs’ 28th in their past 35 games.
Also in Leafs news Nazem Kadri did not attend Sunday’s practice. Kadri arrived to the Mastercard Centre late for unspecified reasons and was told not to suit up. When asked about it Peter Horachek said, “He missed the meeting so I sent him home” and as for Monday’s game, “He’s available, if I want him.”
