Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!
I’m still coming down from an exciting weekend, with the Maple Leafs huge comeback against the Detroit Red Wings, with Michael Buntings first hat trick as a Maple Leaf.
Then yesterday we got a fantastic performance from the Canadian men’s soccer team, who are finally coming close to matching the women in talent and success. Canada defeated the United States 2-0 in Hamilton yesterday, and sits on top of the CONCACAF table, winning their past five games in a row and outscoring opponents 17-5.
Very exciting times for men’s soccer right now. I think if this team qualifies for the world cup, they may actually score a goal.
Staying with international tournaments, former Chicago head coach Jeremy Colliton has been named the new head coach for the Canadian Men’s Olympic team after Claude Julien broke his ribs during some “team building activities” at training camp in Switzerland.
