Yesterday was a bit of an emotional roller-coaster for Leafs fans. Today it’s time to shift the focus back to hockey as the Leafs will play three games over four days, all on home ice.

The Blackhawks are in town to play the Leafs tonight. The first meeting between these teams was the third game of the season, way back on October 7th. You may recall it was a crazy game that the Leafs won 7-6 in OT. The Hawks are sitting six points out of the playoff Wild Card spot right now so they would sure like to get the win tonight.

We’ll have a preview of the game up later today.

Here’s what we wrote about yesterday.
