The Toronto Maple Leafs walloped the Avalanche with an 8-2 win yesterday

The Leafs are now headed for a quick weekend road trip to the Central Division, playing Saturday against the Minnesota Wild, and on Sunday against the Winnipeg Jets.

A reminder that Saturday’s Marlies game at the Coliseum has been postponed indefinitely as their scheduled visiting opponent, the Springfield Thunderbirds, went into COVID protocol and so they cannot travel here. Sunday’s Marlies game against the Laval Rocket is going ahead as normal.

There was a lot of Leafs news yesterday from before the game.
