Twenty games into this NHL season, Leafs coach Randy Carlyle is still waiting for his team to show its true identity.

Getting healthy and away from the long arm of the NHL law would certainly make that easier and it appears that help is on the way.

Centre Tyler Bozak participated in his first full practice Monday morning at the Mastercard Centre and is hoping to return to the lineup if not by Thursday night for Saturday’s big home date with the Washington Capitals.
