Maple Leafs fans will be able to watch the team's game against the Washington Capitals on their home computers Friday night.

By going to mapleleafs.com, interested parties can purchase the streaming video of the game for $3.95.

Not only can viewers pick which camera angle to watch, there also will be cameras positioned in the Leaf dressing room and in the location where coach Paul Maurice holds his post-game press conference.

The offer is available only in areas where Leafs TV is available.

THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE

One player comes back, another goes down.

Such is the story of the Leafs' injury-riddled 2006-07 campaign.

The Leafs welcomed forward Yanic Perreault back to the lineup last night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Perreault missed Toronto's dramatic 4-3 overtime victory over the rival Ottawa Senators on Saturday because of a sore shoulder, an ailment that has plagued him all season.

Coming out of the lineup was forward John Pohl, who is enduring back woes.

"He's suffering from tightness and discomfort," Maurice said.

THE SNUB CLUB

Lightning coach John Tortorella is irked that defenceman Dan Boyle was passed up for the all-star game because of the numbers game. Since each team must have a representative at the affair, Boyle found himself the odd man out.

"He was robbed a bit because they make them take at least one guy from every team," Tortorella said. "That's wrong. If you are an all-star, then you are an all-star. Period.

"I think they missed the boat a bit."

Boyle, who is among the top five scorers among defencemen in the league this season, said he uses the snub as internal motivation.

"It bothered me a bit but it is not the end of the world. I have to move on," he said.
