Go Leafs Go!

Maple Leafs (8-5-0) @ Kings 9-2-1)

Bullshit O'Clock ET
Staples Center
TV: TSN4
Our game preview is here.

The Toronto Maple Leafs might be coming off of a win against Anaheim, and might have beaten the LA Kings the last time they faced each other, but let's not be too Quick putting the Carter before the horse. The Ducks were missing the top half of their roster, and while the Kings are also missing some good players I Doughty it will be as impactful as missing the quality and quantity of players the Ducks did. This should be a Toffoli match up for the Leafs, who just played last night in Lewis of getting a day off.

It's not like the Kings' play has suffered much, as their record shows we shouldn't be Kempe-ted to call this an easy win. This is the California road trip, where Leafs' seasons have gone to die. I'm not Folin for it again, even if I Laich the Leafs' roster a lot more now than in years past. It should be another good test Forborth teams, so hopefully the Leafs can end this road trip on a high note and when they land in Pearson we can give them all a well deserved "How now, Brown cow!" and party it up Dowd by the lake Shore.

Kopitar.

Here's your lines!

Kapanen gets onto the Leafs "second" line with Kadri and Komarov, because Babcock apparently can't resist weird line-acronyms. On the bright side, that line has a lot more Finnish now! Also, this adorableness.

Poll

My birthday's this month and I want to finally have a Leafs jersey. What player name/number should I get?
