The Toronto Maple Leafs once again defeated the Ottawa Senators in pre-season action last night and once again the score was 4-1, and once again a big new free agent signing scores two goals.
It wasn’t John Tavares this time, but another new face: the recently bought out Tyler Ennis.
Is Kyle Dubas a secret genius? Did he know what he was getting on the cheap after the Minnesota Wild bought him out?
Maybe. But it’s probably that the Ottawa Senators are just really, really, really, bad.
Here are your morning links, but first, the game in six:
