It's time for some duck à l'orange.

It was never his colour.

You want narratives, we have narratives.

Frederik Andersen is facing the man who took his job in John Gibson.

Jonathan Bernier is sitting on the bench so he can start against Carey Price in his hometown Montréal, where he has historically been terrible. He can just sit and think about that.

Randy Carlyle hasn't had toast in twenty years.

He put Jared Boll in the lineup. On purpose.

Frederik Gauthier is getting in an NHL game! On purpose.

Josh Leivo is getting in an NHL. That's the real surprise. Babcock said he's real good on the cycle and can flat out score. Then he said, "If he can get up and down the ice in time." Ouch.

And William Nylander is all ready to step in as centre. With Mitch Marner! How can you miss that?

Despite all of that, I have confidence the television broadcasters will talk about faceoffs.

But that's all just stories. The important thing is:


Go Leafs Go!
