TORONTO - Nazem Kadri scored three goals in the first period of the Maple Leafs' Blue and White scrimmage.
Cody Franson and Phil Kessel also scored and defenceman Mike Kostka added a shootout goal in what was deemed a 6-1 victory for the Blue squad.
Nikolai Kulemin scored for the Whites, although goalkeeper Ben Scrivens wasn't sure the puck actually crossed the line.
Head coach Randy Carlyle kept his cards close to his chest after the game, saying some players had taken a step forward on the day while others had fallen back.
He said tough decisions await with the team having to declare its 23-man roster ahead of Saturday's season opener in Montreal.
