Updates on Gill and Letang

Both defensemen Hal Gill and Kris Letang had a rough game playing Toronto in their last pre-season game before heading to Europe on Saturday.

Ponikarovsky's goal (Toronto's 2nd) deflected into the net off Letang's face. He stayed on the ice for awhile and required some assistance, but returned in the second period.

Hal Gill suffered from a bruised knee within the first few minutes of the 1st period after being hit into the boards. He was kept out of the lineup for the rest of the game, but coach Michel Therrien reports that "Gill should be fine," and that keeping him out of the rest of the game was precautionary measure. He will be checked out again today just to make sure he's okay, but should be fine.
