Just prior to their biggest game of the season, the Toronto Maple Leafs announced that Joffrey Lupul would miss tonight’s game against the Bruins with a lower-body injury.

Lupul, third on the team in goals with 22, left the morning skate early amid whispers he was on the limp. Whatever’s ailing Lupul didn’t hold him back much in Tuesday’s win over Calgary, however, as he received over 18 minutes of ice time (though he did have a quiet game, failing to register a point or shot on goal.)

It looks as though Jerry D’Amigo will draw in to replace Lupul up front, giving the Leafs a look of:

    What’s up with all the usage of the word ’tilt’ on the site recently? Is Bill Clement writing under the pseudonym ‘Mike Hlaford’ these days?
