The Maple Leafs are looking for a measure of revenge on Monday night when the Columbus Blue Jackets visit the Air Canada Centre.

Goalie Frederik Andersen will be in the Leafs net as they try to avenge a 4-2 loss in Columbus on Dec. 20.

“They slapped us around the last time we were in their building, so we have to be ready to play,” said Leafs coach Mike Babcock.

The Toronto Maple Leafs will look to start the second half of their season on the right note against the Blues . In addition, Babcock and Lou Lamoriello decided to recall Travis Dermott and Frederik Gauthier from the Toronto Marlies and insert them back in the lineup.

What Dermott offers in the here and now should certainly give Leafs management plenty to ponder with the Feb. Frederik Andersen earned the shutout while Travis Dermott and Justin Holl scored their first NHL goals as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the New York Islanders.

“The team that didn’t play should have the better opportunity,” said Babcock. “But you have to do something with that opportunity.”

Rookie defenceman Travis Dermott will play his second game. He’ll be paired with Jake Gardiner to start. Dermott shoots left, but will play the right side.

“We think he’s a good player, let’s get him in the lineup,” said Babcock. “We’ll keep watching, and see what happens.

“In an ideal world, he’d be a right-handed shot and he’d be up here all year.”

Andreas Borgman will be back in the lineup, paired with Roman Polak. Connor Carrick is expected to be a healthy scratch.

Dermott ’s offensive number have been very respectable for a young defenseman that just turned 21 years old with one goal and 13 assists in those 36 games. As the season has progressed Dermott has become more comfortable with his NHL level game. Dermott is solid in the defensive end.

Leafs call up defensive prospect Travis Dermott

Veteran voices help get Leafs out of tailspin .
Neither Patrick Marleau nor Ron Hainsey scored on Saturday night, but each played a big role in Toronto’s skid-stopping 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators.And if the Maple Leafs are to become one of the elite teams in the second half of the NHL season and into the playoffs, it will be in part because of the contribution Marleau and Hainsey have made in shaping their young teammates.Both have stellar resumes. Marleau is in his 20th season, Hainsey his 15th. Marleau remains a gifted skater with an ability to score. Hainsey is a Stanley Cup champion whose attention to detail brings out the best in others.
