Leafs at Devils: Trip to Newark Avoided

7PM ET: TSN
James Reimer vs Martin Brodeur

Last night's disaster changed my plans. I was going to Newark tonight and if the Leafs won and things broke their way I was flying to Toronto Saturday night. I'll be honest; it's been too long since meaningful hockey involved the Leafs for me not to see all of it when given the chance.

Tonight the Leafs go to New Jersey with the aim of keeping St. Louis and Minnesota in the rear view mirror. They got absolutely railroaded by Washington last night and left with a point because James Reimer was never taught the word "quit" in wherever he's from.

The team took last night off. They better be ready to play tonight. Finish strong Leafs.
