I've had a Piebald song stuck in my head for about six years. It's not stuck in my head the way "It's A Small World After All" is currently stuck in yours but it comes and goes. Whenever I think of being stuck somewhere I can't help but have it creep back into my conciousness.
Long nights, hard times.
Everything that makes you feel tired.
That's why I got to get away from you.
I've got something to say.
You might not like how it sounds.
I don't care. I've got to get out of here. - Piebald - Long Nights
The Leafs flew out of New Jersey early this morning and immediately hit the Mastercard Centre for a 10:30AM practice. People in general are happy to be out of New Jersey but I think the Leafs are doubly relieved to finally be back home. Let's hope that shines through in their play tonight in the dreaded Tuesday night against a Southeast opponent game.
Scratches and lineup notes after the jump.
