Well its been an enjoyable first two games and four points for the Toronto Maple Leafs. But also it has been a nice learning curve so that the new and young players on the leafs can slide into the roles, since this is the fastest game on ice. What I do not like is that the leafs players are not able to feed off of these two first wins, since there is a full week between their second and third games.
There are three more game left in the Maple Leaf’s home stand, this Saturday they face the Calgary Flames. Then they face the Colorado Avalanche and Winnipeg Jets before the head off to Boston, in their first road game against the Bruins.
As for injuries, Tim Connolly will probably be back for this Saturday’s game, Nazem Kadri not so much, but hopefully his return will be sometime during next week.
