Winger David Clarkson and defenceman Carl Gunnarsson were each knocked out of Saturday nights game.

The 29-year-old, who has three goals and five assists this season, went to the bench shortly thereafter. Clarrkson returned to the bench later and took one 21-second shift early in the second period before leaving again.dddddddddddd Minutes after Clarkson was injured, Gunnarsson took a hit from Carl Hagelin on his left shoulder, and the 27-year-olds right shoulder was rammed into the glass. With Clarkson out, Jerry DAmigo took his spot on Torontos third line alongside Nikolai Kulemin and Jay McClement. With Gunnarsson out, Jake Gardiner filled in on the top defensive pairing alongside captain Dion Phaneuf.
