It's eclipse day! Expect the City and much of the GTA to come to a standstill around 3:00p.m. for the big show. Once that's over we get another show from the Maple Leafs who are hosting the Penguins. It's the first of four games this week.

Tonight @ 7:00 p.m.: Leafs vs. Penguins
Tuesday @ 7:00 p.m.: Leafs @ Devils
Thursday @ 7:00 p.m.: Leafs vs. Devils
Saturday @ 7:00 p.m.: Leafs vs. Red Wings

Around 6:00 p.m. there will likely be a huge wave of people coming back into the City that drove or took the train somewhere to the west or all the way to Niagara Region to watch the eclipse. So if you are heading downtown leave some extra time.

As an alternative, TSN has the round robin game between Canada and the USA tonight at 7:00 p.m.

Oh, and the eclipse means nothing for the Leafs. Or does it?
