God Morgon everyone, it's the final day of the Global Series and the Leafs face the Wild early today. First a little FTB type content for you:
And now the preview:
Minnesota Wild @ Toronto Maple Leafs
8:00 AM at Avicii Arena, Stockholm
Watch on: SNO, NHLN, BSN, BSWIX
The Minnesota Wild played an extraordinarily dull game against Ottawa yesterday.
That's the whole game, which went to a shootout. Ottawa won, 2-1 the final score. Less than 3 Expected Goals from the two team combined. Whoo hoo!
Way to sell the game, NHL. And blah, blah, fix three-on-three. Get back to me when you're genuinely willing to disincentivize overtime and stop this playing for ties stuff.
Gustavsson played yesterday, so will the Wild try him again or will it be Fleury?

Kirill Kaprizov - Marco Rossi - Mats Zuccarello
Marcus Johansson - Joel Eriksson Ek - Matthew Boldy
Marcus Foligno - Vinni Lettieri - Patrick Maroon
Brandon Duhaime - Connor Dewar - Nic Petan
Jonas Brodin - Brock Faber
Jacob Middleton - Jared Spurgeon
Jon Merrill - Zach Bogosian
Last game, the Leafs came back against the comeback team of the season, the Red Wings, and won it in style. Willy style.
I expect no line changes since we are deep into the saga of John Klingberg – too hurt to play, soon to be a major motion picture brought to you by Robidas Films.
Matthew Knies - Auston Matthews - Mitch Marner
Tyler Bertuzzi - John Tavares - William Nylander
Nicholas Robertson - Max Domi - Calle Järnkrok
Bobby McMann - David Kämpf - Noah Gregor
Morgan Rielly - T.J. Brodie
Mark Giordano - Jake McCabe
Simon Benoit - William Lagesson
Joe Woll – assumed starter
It's Sunday, it's 8 am. Some of us being awake is all I expect. The Leafs are likely fully full up on this Swedish adventure and want to come home. The Wild are... do the wild have enough emotion to feel shame for yesterday's game?
And now for the GDT portion of this post:
GO LEAFS GO
Ah, gee, which Avicii song should I add... hmmm....
