After practice Wednesday he sat at his locker with a sponge, soap and bath towel meticulously scrubbing his pads.

I said, «what are you washing all the saves off for?»

Tonight the Toronto Maple Leafs will go up against the Ottawa Senators in a heated rivalry. According to reports Woll is expected to be the starter tonight against the Senators.

Maple Leafs projected lines, according to Senators. (Faceoff percentages a nice touch.)
