It wasn't immediately apparent whether Marner's problem was injury- or equipment-related. The Maple Leafs had won a season-high three games. "I don't know if it's a few days or weeks or whatever". Dermott scored midway through the second, and Nylander tied it early in the third. "It was close, but it ended up right on my tape".
"I hope he's alright", he said. He briefly returned to the bench during a TV timeout to test his ankle. "If we lose him, it's a massive part of our squad".
Myers and Lindblom gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead in the first period, with Lindblom scoring on a power play. Leafs winger Andreas Johnsson played the 100th game of his National Hockey League career. He played seven minutes, 36 seconds through the first two frames.
And like Leafs fans, they'll also want news soon on their fallen teammate.
Just under one week after a tweet went viral discussing how no one showed up to Toronto Maple Leafs fan Kade Foster's birthday party, the 11-year-old is spending Saturday with his favourite team.
Kade Foster has received an overwhelming outpouring of support after his father tweeted out a photo of his son and asked his friends to show him some love, tagging Maple Leafs stars Mitch Marner and John Tavares after none of his friends showed up his birthday party.
Auston Matthews, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford were among some of the notable figures who wished Kade a happy birthday.
