He's known more for being a solid defensive presence and he currently ranks fifth in the NHL with 166 blocked shots.

Carl Gunnarsson left the game against the Rangers with an upper-body injury.

The defenseman didn't play after a first-period hit from Carl Hagelin. He logged 5:06 and had a shot on goal. Gunnarsson has played an average of 20:05 and the inconsistent Leafs defensive group can ill afford to lose him for an extended period.

The Toronto defense has been a source of instability all season but Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle will not break up the pairing of Carl Gunnarsson and Dion Phaneuf.

This is the only defense pairing that has remained a constant for the Leafs from start to present. "I would say at this point we think that they're our go-to pair," Carlyle said. "Right now, I don't think (breaking up the two) is a possibility for us. . .But coaches change their minds." Searching for balance, Carlyle split Gunnarsson and Phaneuf for the first 28 games last season with Phaneuf playing alongside Korbinian Holzer and current Blackhawk Michael Kostka. By mid-March, though, he abandoned the plan and reconnected the team's usual top pairing.

The Maple Leafs have about $6 million in cap space left and they still need to re-sign restricted free agents Cody Franson, Mark Fraser, Leo Komarov, and Nazem Kadri.
