The March Break week has started today for hundreds of thousands of kids in the GTA, but for the Maple Leafs it’s more like mid-term exam week. Their final three-day break of his season has passed and now it’s a rough schedule through the next month to the end of the regular season on April 13.

From here on in, the Leafs average a game every other day, with only rare two -day breaks. It starts tonight, with four games over the next six days.

Here’s the schedule for the week (all Eastern Daylight Time; you did reset your clocks, right?) :

  • vs. Buffalo Sabres, tonight at 7:30 p.m. on SNO (regional broadcast)
  • vs. Colorado Avalanche, Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. on SN (national broadcast)
  • vs. Carolina Hurricanes, Friday at 7:00 p.m. on TSN4 (regional broadcast - also the St. Pat’s Day game)
  • @ Ottawa Senators, Saturday at 7:00 p.m. on CBC/SN (HNIC game)/

It’s a going to be a really busy week with lots of games, and it’s going to be like that for the next week too with basically the same schedule only shifted by a day, so starting Tuesday and ending Sunday.

Every NHL player remembers their first goal, but for some it’s more memorable than others; selected by the Vegas Golden Knights #79 overall in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, Pavel Dorofeyev will certainly recall his first NHL goal last night as a puck deflected off of his face into the net.
