The Maple Leafs play their eigth game of the season tonight against the Penguins at the ATM. It’s been a great ride for the team so far this season, losing only once. Tonight will be an exceptional challenge, though. Just ask Lars Eller.
Lars Eller on the Maple Leafs: "We were just playing against Crosby and Malkin, so everything kind of drops off from there. It's not that special, to be honest. It's a good team, like a lot of others. They'll probably be a playoff team, I would think."— Isabelle Khurshudyan (@ikhurshudyan) October 14, 2018
Shut up, Lars.
The Penguins also have someone whom you may remember from the Leafs past....
