The final game of the Maple Leafs annual Western Canada road trip is tonight. Normally this would be in Vancouver but their relentless whining about one 4:00 p.m. game per season was too much for the NHL to handle so they flipped things up and brought in the Oilers for this season.
We’ll have a preview of tonight’s game up later this afternoon.
John Tavares recalled his first run-in with Connor McDavid when the Oilers' captain was just entering junior hockey, and apparently already quite good: "I don't know who was teaching him then how to skate, but would have been nice if that was around when I was playing."— Kristen Shilton (@kristen_shilton) December 13, 2019
The Marlies are hosting the Belleville Senators tonight. In a break from prior weeks, they aren’t playing the same team on Sunday. Instead the Rockford Ice Hogs (Chicago Blackhawks affiliates) will be in town.
The Marlies lost last Wednesday playing the Comets in Utica in a game with a bizarre second period. A.J. MacLean tries to explain what happened here.
We’re still waiting for an update on Adam Brooks who left the game injured on Wednesday.

There’s nothing like a roster cut on a road trip to cement your status as a tweener. Katya has the latest on Nic Petan and Trevor Moore.

Things are bad. Just how bad are they? I’m starting to wonder if they have ever been worse.
Taylor Hall certainly must think it’s pretty bad for the Devils right now.
I’m told Taylor Hall has not been dealt at this point, however, there is some traction in trade talks the Devils are having with teams and so the risk is not worth playing him play at the moment. Stay tuned. https://t.co/i3273tPiDX— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) December 14, 2019
