FTB: Maple Leafs offence invisible on Saturday night

New, comments

None of William Nylander, Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner or John Tavares could manage to score a goal last night.

If you didn’t see the Maple Leafs play Saturday night, you didn’t miss much. Or, anything, really. It was one of those odd-ball Saturdays where the team had the night off. They spent the day in Sunrise, Florida getting ready for their game there tonight.

This will be one of only three Sunday games the Leafs play in the entire season. The other two Sunday game dates have some explanation behind them; the day before Remembrance Day and Family Day when a large share of the Ontario population has the Monday off.

Not this time. The Leafs play at 7:00 p.m. and you may be a bit tired at work or school tomorrow if you stay up to watch them. We’ll have a preview of the game up later this morning.

Will Andreas Johnsson make his return in tonight’s game? “Maybe.”


The Marlies resumed their boat show road trip last night after a sudden emergency medical incident with Assistant Coach Rob Davison caused them to forfeit Friday night’s game. The Marlies lost 5-3 to the Stars with their scoring led by Nic Petan with two power play goals.

The Marlies now head to the Unicomplex where they will face Andreas Borgman and the drones on the San Antonio Rampage.


Don’t forget about the Leafs smol prospects. Nicholas Robertson is back with the Peterborough Petes after a stint on Team USA at the World Junior Championship. He’s teaming up with Semyon Der-Arguchintsev to score all the goals again.

The situation room said this wasn’t a goal, but it kind of looks like the puck goes through the netting. That has happened before.

The Ducks are willing to take on bad contracts for assets - Anaheim Calling
The Ducks currently have a projected $2 million in cap space by the end of the season, per Capfriendly, but that does not include the possibility of placing Kesler and/or Eaves on LTIR, which would allow the Ducks to exceed the $81.5 million salary cap ceiling by a significant margin.
