The Maple Leafs win streak was extended to three games last night with a win against the Red Wings and a bizarre goalie change situation as a side show to the victory.
Here’s our recap of last night’s game.
Andersen on Leafs win streak: "You see how much the skill shows. Guys are playing very free & enjoying it a lot & making really good plays. The more we can have the puck, the better. Teams get tired ... it's hard to defend when you have that much skill & moving around that much"— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) November 28, 2019
The Leafs have a Black Friday special game tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. against the Sabres. Yes, you read that time correctly. There’s a whole slew of matinee games tomorrow for post-turkey viewing.
I can’t recall the last time the Marlies and Leafs played on the same day and the Marlies started their game after the Leafs, but it will happen tomorrow. They will be on the ice at 7:00 p.m. in Utica, probably sad they weren’t in Albany for a Thanksgiving meal of delicious steamed hams. They will however be back in Toronto on Saturday for their of matinee game at the Scotiabank Arena.
