Good morning fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs and others who shun joy.

The Maple Leafs are currently in Las Vegas, preparing to face the Golden Knights tomorrow night in game one of a five game, two week road trip that won’t see the Leafs skate on Scotiabank Arena ice until November 30th, which is, of course, game two of a back to back.

Tuesday, November 19th - @ Vegas Golden Knights, 10PM
Thursday, November 21st - @ Arizona Coyotes, 9PM
Saturday, November 23rd - @ Colorado Avalanche, 7PM
Wednesday, November 27th - @ Detroit Red Wings, 7PM
Friday, November 29th - @ Buffalo Sabres, 4PM
Saturday, November 30th - vs Buffalo Sabres, 7PM

I’m sure the Leafs will come home after the Avalanche game, sort some things out, fire some people, make some trades, figure their stuff out, then fly out to Detroit.

Is anyone going to stay up and watch the Vegas or Coyotes games? It’s pretty late to be disappointed.

Will you stay up to watch the late games?
