Good morning friends!

It is Tuesday and I’m going to make coffee. The rest is for you.

Last night the Leafs played and... well the result is pretty Leafy. Late blown lead, injuries to defensemen, loss in overtime. That said this was one of the better played games this year. The recap is included beloe

In the event you missed the news of yesterday, please allow me to walk you through the paces, starting with where you are now:

That is all I have for today. The Leafs play again tomorrow night, getting a quick rematch with the New Jersey Devils. Send them back from whence they came... and have a lovely Tuesday.
