We covered this team two days ago, but you remember it, right? A total juggernaut that has no flaws and is what a real team looks like.

Or, was it a weak five-on-five team with some good forwards and two very good goalies.

The Leafs are a shambling husk of a team that just isn't good.

Or are they struggling through a virus going around?

On that topic, Jake McCabe may play if he's well enough. Likely some gametime decisions in general. Lines are from yesterday.
