We are one hour away from puck drop against the Buffalo Sabres, and the Maple Leafs faithful are currently filling into their seats, crowding the bars on the waterfront, and clogging up the Peace Bridge.
(If they were smart they’d cross at the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls and take the freeway through New York to get to Buffalo.)
Here’s some news to catch up on while we wait:
The only Leafs prospect to not make the playoffs is now in Newfoundland.
Joseph Duszak, out newest defender, was named a top 10 finalist for the Hobey Baker award - best NCAA player.
