In the absence of the actual Leafs in the playoffs, I have defaulted to getting incredibly emotional about former Toronto Maple Leaf Nazem Kadri. Last night he spent the majority of Game 4 against the Arizona Coyotes on hatty watch as his two first period goals helped set the team on their path towards their eventual 7-1 victory. The Colorado Avalanche now lead the series 3-1.
RIP to the Arizona Coyotes though. That’s rough buddy.
