From the Branches: The long national nightmare is over

I never thought I'd say this but thank you Canucks!

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

What a wonderful day! The clouds are crying tears of happiness, and the trees are waving with glee. No, it isn't the remnants of a gigantic hurricane, it's the Earth celebrating the end of the Canadiens season opening win streak. This mean the Leafs are still the record holders! Take that Puke City!

On the Leaf front we have a game tonight vs.... no one, because it hasn't been 4 days yet! The next game is Friday vs the Rangers.

Have some links, there are enough to fill 2 pairs of cargo shorts, and enjoy your arguments.
