Toronto trails New Jersey and Montreal by seven points for the
final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. The Maple Leafs
are coming off Sunday's 4-3 win over the Devils as
Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 35 saves in his season debut.
Less than a week after announcing that goaltender Ed Belfour
will miss the rest of the campaign with a back injury, the Leafs
disclosed Monday that Jason Allison - the team's second-leading
scorer - will be sidelined indefinitely with a broken hand.
The season series is tied at 1-1 but the teams have not met
since October 22.
