From the Branches: One down, 81 to go

The NHL season kicked off with a Maple Leafs loss to Montreal, but I didn't find it to be a painful loss, aside from that first goal. dammit dammit
John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

How y'all feeling today? I enjoyed last nights game, dribbler goal to open the game aside. We got to see the first ever coach's challenge which is neat and falls into the history of the Leafs doing new things, they had the first shootout in NHL history as well.

No Leafs game tonight, but game 1 of the ALDS series between the Blue jays and the Rangers happens. If you want we can make a GDT for everyone to chat in if you don't feel like going all the way to BBB. Game 1 is at 3:30 this afternoon, so skip out of work early, eh?

Enjoy your links, it's the most wonderful time of the year.
