The Toronto Maple Leafs look for their second straight win on Tuesday when they host the New York Islanders at Air Canada Centre. Vontaze Burfict Jersey . Listen to the game on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto at 7pm et. The club dropped three in a row before ending the slump with Saturdays 4-2 win over visiting Buffalo. James van Riemsdyk scored twice to lift the Maple Leafs to a win Saturday in the back end of a home-and-home series with the Sabres. Mason Raymond posted a goal and an assist while Nikolai Kulemin also scored for Toronto. James Reimer posted 33 saves in the victory. Reimer is 4-2-1 with a 3.43 goals against average in his career against the Islanders. Fellow Toronto goaltender Jonathan Bernier has never faced the Isles. Torontos Phil Kessel will be in the lineup for tonights contest after the star winger sat out practice on Monday with a bout of the flu. Kessel is leading Toronto this season in both goals (10) and points (19). Meanwhile, Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bozak returned to practice Monday for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury on Oct. 25. Bozak is eligible to come off the injured reserve on Thursday, but its unclear if he will be able to play in Torontos game that night against Nashville. The Islanders try to win consecutive games for only the second time this season. The Islanders last won back-to-back outings on Nov. 1 and 2 against Ottawa and Boston, respectively. New York is coming off Saturdays home shootout victory over Detroit, although that win did come at a cost as goaltender Evgeni Nabokov suffered a groin injury early in the affair. Nabokov had sat out the previous three games before returning to action on Saturday against the Red Wings. His return didnt last long, however, as the 38-year-old veteran left 4:12 into the game after facing only one shot. Nabokov was placed on injured reserve on Monday and could miss a month of action or more. Kevin Poulin, who is 2-1-0 in his last three decisions, stopped 19-of-22 shots through overtime in his relief effort on Saturday. He also turned aside Detroits Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi in the shootout phase to seal the 5-4 triumph for the Isles. "He battles hard, he competes really hard," Islanders captain John Tavares said about Poulin. "Hes a confident guy and did a great job obviously in the shootout." With Nabokov on the shelf, Poulin will assume the starters role. The Islanders also recalled netminder Anders Nilsson from their American Hockey League affiliate in Bridgeport to serve in a backup role. Frans Nielsen scored the lone shootout goal on Saturday, while Tavares registered a goal and an assist for the Islanders, who once again played without winger Thomas Vanek. The Austrian forward has missed the past four games after playing in just six games with New York following a trade with Buffalo last month. Vanek, who has five goals and seven assists in 19 total games this season, will not play tonight. Saturdays win allowed New York to complete a three-game homestand with a 2-1-0 record. The club will play its next three on the road and is just 3-6-0 as the guest this season. The Isles have won three straight and four of their last six games in Toronto. New York has claimed three of four overall in this series. The Maple Leafs, however, are boasting a strong 7-2-0 mark on home ice this season and are beginning a four-game stay at the ACC tonight. Clint Boling Jersey . Some will say that Martin is too sensitive while others will say that it is part of the way football is in the locker room. But to have to absorb what was said to him for any rational and intelligent person is too much. Andre Smith Jersey . There is no argument that the line of Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Thomas Vanek was one of the hottest in the NHL leading into the post-season, and they did combine for three goals and seven points, but it was the depth of all four lines that helped propel Montreal.OTTAWA -- Two injuries have derailed most of Kaetlyn Osmonds rookie Olympic season, but she and her coach have managed to find a silver lining. Osmond said shes fully recovered from both a stress reaction in her left ankle, and a torn right hamstring, and is skating in practice better than at any other time in her relatively short career. And when the curtain comes up on the Sochi Olympics next month, Osmond, at least, will be fresh. "I think it will end up being a real advantage for her," her coach Ravi Walia said on the eve of the Canadian figure skating championships. "Some people are exhausted at the end of the season, and I think she wont be. Shes just getting better. This last month of training, shes just gotten so much better. And I really believe that she has a lot more in her this season to keep improving." The 18-year-old from Marystown, N.L., should be a lock for one of Canadas two Olympic berths in womens singles, and is Canadas most promising female skater since the retirement of Joannie Rochette. But a season that held so much promise for the skater who burst onto the international scene when she won Skate Canada in the fall of 2012 has been full of obstacles. She suffered the stress reaction -- a precursor to a stress fracture -- in August, and was off the ice for several weeks. Then finally back on the ice for Skate Canada in late October, she woke up the morning of her long program unable to put much weight on her leg. Tests determined it was a torn hamstring and she withdrew from the remainder of the Grand Prix circuit. "This whole year has been a big learning experience," said Osmond, who trains in Edmonton. Her goal this week is to show "that I can come back from anything." Walia said her recovery from her latest setback has been remarkable, and praised the teenagers positive outlook. "Shes had so many obstacless and so many setbacks, but whats been great is she has a good attitude, and whatever setbacks she had she would do whatever she had to to get back on track," he said. Jeff Driskel Jersey. "Even if she wasnt at 100 per cent, you could tell the motivation was there." "I was getting worried because of timeline," he added. "But each day she would come (to practice) and do whatever we had to do, and it would be successful each day. She got ready so quick." This seasons short program -- to "Big Spender" from the musical "Sweet Charity" -- was met with some criticism when she debuted it at Skate Canada. There were questions about whether the choice of music was too mature for the teen. She was referred to as "Canadas answer to Miley Cyrus." Both Osmond and Walia shrugged off the negative comments. "She knows her program is appropriate for her, she likes it and its exciting to do, so it didnt bother her at all," Walia said. "It was brought up to be something that it wasnt. Half the skaters out there are skating to music, that maybe where it comes from, might be a story that theyre not portraying. Shes skating to a 60s style dance. "It was a little surprising, it didnt necessarily bother me," he added. Osmond won Skate Canada Challenge -- a qualifying event for nationals that she normally would have skipped -- early last month, and now, with obstacles behind her, is poised to make her Olympic debut. "It just seems like everything is going really fast. Its exciting," said Osmond, who was eighth at last years world championships. "(Making the Olympic team) still hasnt fully crossed my mind, I think its still such a shocker to even think of the possibility, so I dont think it will fully register until I actually make it." Skate Canada will name its team for Sochi on Sunday.Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
