The Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe announced the projected lineup for the first game against the Boston Bruins.

Yesterday, the Leafs held a practice session and we saw many changes.

Notably, William Nylander wasn't on the ice.

T.J. Brodie and Mark Giordano skated as extras alongside Conor Timmins and Cade Webber, and the Bertuzzi-Matthews-Domi line was back.

Domi, who missed a few games at the end of the season, should be good to go in Boston.
