After starting the season with wins in six of their seven games the Toronto Maple Leafs have hit a bit of a rut in recent weeks, winning just three of their past nine games heading into Wednesday’s home game against the Minnesota Wild. Wednesday’s game will be a little bit more challenging due to the fact their best player, second-year superstar Auston Matthews, will be out of the lineup due to an upper-body injury. He is currently listed as being day-to-day. Matthews has been dealing with the injury for a couple of days now but managed to play on Monday night in Toronto’s 4-3 shootout win against Vegas. He recorded an assist in the win.
Slumping Leafs will be without Auston Matthews tonight
