Welcome to Toronto! I know it's colder up here even in November than it is in Arizona, but don't worry, the arena is kept pretty warm. If there are any fans from Atlanta or the area here to take in the game, please let us know so we can explain some of the differences between Ontario and Georgia slang.

Now, I know the Maple Leafs don't have THE GREATEST FANS IN HOCKEY™ so maybe the Thrashers will be thrown off their game by how awful the inside of the Air Canada Centre is. It's down right disgusting how we don't chant our corporate overlords names before the game, and don't boo the opposing teams best player even though it makes no sense and boo a local boy coming home to play in the NHL in front of his family. No sirree bob, us Leafs fans were never named a star of the game for cheering our team all the way to a first round sweep (We just get told it's our fault the team is bad, despite our last playoff loss went to OT in seven games).

Quiet morning, all reporter eyes were on the new cabinet.
Leafs Last Game:
The Maple Leafs defeated the Dallas Stars 4-1, capturing their second win of the season. James Reimer made 44 saves and was named first star of the game (Jethhrasher fans were named 4th star). Morgan Rielly was a star with 3 points on the night and Brab Boyes scored his first as a Maple Leaf.
Thrashjeyotes Last Game:
Arizantapeg lost 5-1 to the Montreal Canadiens who were only playing their back up goaltender. Of course the Coyets played TWO back up goaltenders, so they won that fight.
Move the NewJets to Las Vegas.
