Welcome Back Leafs


God's Team went 1-1-3 on a five game road trip and they would have done better if someone whose nickname rhymes with "Dog ship" didn't torpedo a strong effort on Saturday. Have the Leafs turned the corner, who knows? But tomorrow night the latest in a string of Leafs saviours, Phil Kessel, makes his debut at the ACC in front of the faithful, the suits, and in front of our unquestioned starting goaltender: the Monster.

The weird thing about all of this is Damien Cox:

Followed immediately by:

8:16 PPP:  O HAI TOSKALOL
