Ugh. It was so silly the Leafs lost that last game against the Panthers. They really need to roll with the momentum from the win against the Devils last night and turn it into another win tonight. Oh, and Nylander needs a goal. Only so I don’t have to hear everyone talking about how he doesn’t have one yet.

I suggest we set the tune for the evening to the overture of a famous opera. Maybe Mitch and Auston will be further inspired. If we’re lucky, they got to keep that cannon from the ballet last night and can use it in the game. If we’re really lucky, we’ll get the Panther’s 2 GP.
