The Maple Leafs are 2-1 against the Senators, outscoring them 11-4 this season. Normally, playing a bottom ten team in the league would worry me, but history this season keeps me hopeful for a win like Thursday night against Washington.


The Senators are having a good April, with a 5-3 record so far and all of their wins have seen them scoring three or more goals in each game. It should be noted that four of those wins were against Detroit and Montreal, but winning is a confidence boost so they should be competitive tonight.

Say it with me: The Maple Leafs are great.

5-1-1 in April, beating the Lightning, taking the Panthers to over time, losinPig to the Sabres, typical stuff. Scoring about five or so goals per game this team is sowing off its offensive prowess at every opportunity. Will Auston Matthews make it to 60 goals tonight? John Tavares is only four goals from 30, and Alex Kerfoot is one point from 50. There’s lots of personal bests on the line this season, and a good game against the Senators could move them closer to reality.
