The Ducks are back at it tonight, continuing their road trip through Eastern Canada and facing the Toronto Maple Leafs — who have added a few pieces Ducks fans should be familiar with, as they previously played just down the road at Staples Center. Jack Campbell is expected to get the nod in net and Kyle Clifford will be in the lineup when the Ducks take the ice at Scotiabank Arena tonight.

After last night in Montreal went into overtime, the Ducks will need to stay alert, and perhaps more importantly, stay out of the penalty box. They played through five minor penalties last night and luckily only allowed one power play goal. But Toronto is much scarier. It’s better to not even give them the chance to begin with.
