January 18th, 20180986Game Day Report Brought to you by: Murph.
(thank you sir !!)
Tonight it's the Leafs vs the Flyers, the Leafs have lost both match-ups vs the Flyers this season and have been struggling as of late. They have lost their last 3 games and have not won in regulation since December 28 against Arizona. I can imagine that...
