[LL] It Only Gets Tougher

Who cares about John Scott? - Rick Stewart

The Leafs come off the first half of a back-to-back with an overtime loss against the worst team in the league, and December doesn't get much better.

The Leafs fell to the Sabres last night, and their December schedule doesn't look like a cakewalk. They'll get a chance to take two points against the Habs tonight, who are also coming off a back-to-back (a shootout loss against the Caps). Go Leafs go!
