Game on! So they won the cup. Do they have John Tavares? No, they do not. They don’t have Auston Matthews or MOrrgan Rielly (credit and a $5 royalty to loserpoints for every usage of this joke).

The Leafs have a lot to prove, and the Caps, well, to be honest, they probably want to wash the taste of getting stoned by the Devils 6-0 out of their mouths. I suggest a lot of bear out of a silver cup.

The game is on at 7 PM. While you wait, check out the recap of the Marlies encountering life without Andreas Johnsson and Ben Smith which will be up soon.

Game Preview: Maple Leafs face the reigning Cup Champions tonight

Johnny is in for the Leafs tonight, while Tyler Ennis gets to watch, and Igor Ozhiganov comes in for Martin Mar-Pinch-in (blame and $5 fine to Fulemin for that joke).

The CWHL opens their regular season tonight, so spare a moment to with the Furies and the Thunder well.

Who do you want to see get the hat trick tonight?

Who will score three?

Matthews, of course32
Tavares, he’s got a taste for it6
Kadri, he’s overdue37
Brooks Orpik because the hockey gods hate us34
