Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans and people who enjoy black and white photos of families.

It’s December 19th, and we have just two Maple Leafs games left before the NHL takes its Christmas break. No games from December 23rd to the 26th. The Scotiabank Arena will be busy on Boxing Day however, as the Toronto Marlies take over the big rink for a day. The Belleville Senators will be the opponent and the game starts at 3PM.

On the Maple Leafs schedule, we have them hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night at 7PM, and then the Philadelphia Flyers come to town on Thursday for the new traditional matinee game, at 2PM.

This will be the Maple Leafs second game against the Lightning this year - they lost 4-3 in overtime back on December 3rd.
