The Anaheim Ducks finish off their swing in Eastern Canada with the second of a back to back, tonight facing off against some familiar faces in the Toronto Maple Leafs.
A Friday night game in Toronto is always a great opportunity for the Anaheim Ducks, as it gives them a great deal of exposure facing off in one of hockey’s hotbeds. With a lot of eyes on the team, the Ducks will look to bounce back after a tough overtime loss against Montreal last night. The team will be facing off against two of their former rivals from the Los Angeles Kings as both Kyle Clifford and Jack Campbell, acquired by the Leafs in a trade made yesterday, will be making their debuts for Toronto tonight.

Still, the Anaheim Ducks have been playing a decent game since returning from the All-Star break, and hopefully, that carries over into tonight’s game. This will be the final game of this stretch in Eastern Canada and here is everything you need to know before the puck drops at center ice.
