We have put the bye week and All Star break behind us and now have two and a half of uninterrupted Maple Leafs hockey ahead of us. The Maple Leafs are in Nashville already, preparing to take on the Predators and we have Jake Muzzin returning, Auston Matthews is ready to play after sitting out the All Star Game and Marlie Tyler Gaudet will be joining the team for this road trip.

The littlest Leafs, the Newfoundland Growlers, have been doing okay. They have won 12 of their last 15 games, and the losses have been nice and close. Last night it was a 7-6 shootout loss to the Brampton Beast.
