NHL: Nashville Predators at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

It was not a fun night. The Maple Leafs fell to what is a now category 5 Hurricanes team last night. It figures. The Leafs have no defence against south-east division teams on a Tuesday night.

The Leafs fall 2-1 to a quick, defensive Hurricanes squad.

It’s another back-to-back for the Leafs as they face the New Jersey Devils tonight. We will have a game preview up shortly.

The Marlies also lost 3-1 to the Albany Devils. Some good news is Lindberg returned from his injury.

Las Vegas

After a laborious and poorly executed announcement event last night we finally found out the new Las Vegas team name. It’s the Vegas Golden Knights.

I think Gold Knights would have been better, and not expanding at all would have been much better, but, what do I know? I’m just a blogger.

Here’s some tenuously related “gold” videos because it’s my FTB and I can do this.
