Leafs announce updates on Morgan Rielly and Mitch Marner

Both key Leafs players are banged up.



The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off a disappointing setback last night at the hands of the New Jersey Devils, a 6-3 defeat that resulted in head coach Sheldon Keefe calling out members of his team in a postgame rant that raised more than a few eyebrows everywhere. 

The Leafs will take on the Washington Capitals tomorrow night, facing a team that has suddenly thrust themselves back into the playoff picture after having appeared to punt on the season with the trades of Evgeny Kuznetsov and Anthony Mantha at the Trade Deadline earlier in the month. 

And if the Leafs are to return to the win column, they'll have to do so without at least one of their top players in Mitch Marner, who will be missing his 10th straight game after having suffered a high ankle sprain against the Boston Bruins on March 7.

Additionally, they may be without defenseman Morgan Rielly, who didn't play last night and has been listed as questionable to suit up tomorrow. 

Will the Leafs overtake the Capitals tomorrow night despite being shorthanded?
