The Leafs Christmas break is over. Tonight they head to Columbus to play the Blue Jackets. It’s the first of back-to-back games with tomorrow’s here in Toronto against the Islanders. If you haven’t been counting, tonight is game #38. We’re getting pretty close to the half way mark of the season.
We’ll have a preview of the game up later this morning.
