Only 24 hours after the Toronto Maple Leafs opened up the preseason with a win over the Ottawa Senators, they are back at it tonight at home against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers are making their preseason debut.

Both teams enter tonight's game with plenty of intrigue. The Flyers have one of the most remade rosters in the NHL, and the Leafs are on the cusp of contending for a playoff spot. If the Flyers made the wrong decision by getting rid of nine players during the offseason, they could very well be fighting with the Leafs for the last playoff spot.

Tonight's game has been getting a lot of press with two sets of brothers facing each other. The Leafs' Phil Kessel and Luke Schenn will be countered by their younger brothers, Blake and Brayden, respectively. You can bet a lot of emphasis will be placed on the two pairs of brothers by color commentators for tonight's game.

What will happen tonight? Who knows, but it should be a good game.
