The Detroit Red Wings Alumni Association will be visiting the arena and facing off with the local Mountain View Vets team.
The Leafs scored on their first shot, just seven seconds into a power play, when Mitch Marner fired the puck past Howard, who appeared to be screened by Trevor Daley, at 3:49.
The isn't the first time the Leafs three, explosive young forwards have scored in the same game; it happened twice in their rookie seasons: February 6 in a 6-5 loss against the Islanders, and April 1 in a 5-4 win against the Red Wings. One of them scored before the game was 4 minutes old.
Howard good: Jimmy Howard denied a Nazem Kadri wrist shot with a glove save late in the game and made several strong saves overall as Howard faced one of the most dynamic offenses in the Eastern Conference.
However - and in spite of the Leafs outshooting Detroit 12-6 in the period - the Wings did what they did in the first, striking back to even the score prior to the intermission.
The Leafs pushed back in the second period after chasing the puck in the first. After 15 shots on net in the first period, they had just eight the last two periods. As it stands right now, they're already capable of quite a bit.
Leo Komarov added an empty-net goal to complete the scoring with 16 seconds left in the game.
Red Wings" Henrik Zetterberg and coach Jeff Blashill excited for "real test' Friday against Maple Leafs at Little Caesars on September 29, 2017.
Both teams dressed most of their regular players.
Booth good:Booth has played well all exhibition season, showing good hustle and helping out on penalty kills. There are still battles for jobs on the National Hockey League roster for some of the Buds, and the fact those battles could come down to the final pre-season game is a great harbinger of what's ahead for the franchise this year.
