[Thursday FTB] Two Games, One Night

Pre-season hockey now includes elaborate, inter-squad trust falls.
Pre-season hockey now includes elaborate, inter-squad trust falls.
John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports
The Maple Leafs played a pair of split squad games against the Senators. They dropped both - one 4-3 in the shootout and one 3-2 in regular time. There were goals from JVR, from Kadri, from Rielly, and from Carrick. I haven't been able to watch much pre-season yet, but geeze it feels good to have the buzz of hockey back in the air (pre-season or not).
Some links to hold you over until Friday's game against the Sabres.
