Recap: Leafs play not quite shinny against the Wild in a 2-0 loss - Katya
Leafs gave the game away with some poor choices and lightweight effort.

Tonight they finish their road trip with in Detroit against the Red Wings. The Wings have won only one game in regulation in their last ten. The Leafs should have this one with ease, right?

Right?

Can we have Auston Matthews back now, please?

We will have a preview of the game up later this morning. After tonight’s game the Leafs have the weekend off. Yep. That’s right. No Leafs hockey on Saturday night because of that silly outdoor game in Ottawa hogging all the attention.
