The Maple Leafs defeated the Red Wings last night, winning their second game in a row. The curse of the segababa has been lifted! Here’s our recap of the game.
Sheldon Keefe on sitting Nylander/Kapanen: “That line I just thought, maybe didn't get much going on. But also just didn't really like the other lines and how things were moving so I just wanted to mix things up.” Thought that would get Matthews rolling as well.— Kristen Shilton (@kristen_shilton) December 22, 2019
Keefe on Nylander/Kapanen sitting: "It's the way that it goes; some nights guys are going to play more than others. Willy had an outstanding game yesterday and was a difference-maker for us. Today it was other guys. That's part of having a team and an 82-game season."— Kristen Shilton (@kristen_shilton) December 22, 2019
The Marlies were playing last night too in Belleville. They defeated the Senators 7-3 with goals by pretty much everyone, including Mason Marchment on a penalty shot.

Fun times in Orlando.
Josh Leivo should have stayed in the press box. This sounds like an injury that must have hurt like hell.

Patrik Laine’s deadpan humour is great.
