Toronto Maple Leafs (4-11-6, 14 pts)

News and Notes:  The Maple Leafs have an NHL-low 14 points. Toronto is coming off their second home win, 2-1 in a shootout over Washington on Saturday night. Toronto entered the matchup 1-6-2 at Air Canada Centre.  Brandon Witt should return to the lineup for the Islanders as he has missed the last week or so due to personal reasons.  The Isles have lost two straight following a 2-0-2 start to the seven-game trip, its longest of the season. The Islanders have dropped consecutive games in regulation for the first time since Nov. 4-6.  Toronto went 3-1-0 versus the Islanders last season and has gone 18-4-1 with one tie in its last 24 home games against them.
