Just breathe!!! They won!!!
The Leafs will face the 27th placed Florida Panthers tonight after taking 2pts out of a solidly played game last night against the 1st placed Tampa Bay Lightning. If they bring that type of game again tonight we should expect another win.
In a nutshell, the Leafs need to play hard to take advantage of a team that hasn’t won a game yet in January, having gone 0-5-2 since the calendar flipped to 2019. They’ve been outscored 31-15 in that span, and are finding it hard to get a save.
The Panthers, on the other hand, need to throw as many pucks on net as possible to try to rattle the cage of Garret Sparks, as he makes his first start since Dec. 29th.
No other lineup changes are expected for the Leafs.
Other than Garret Sparks starting, no lineup changes for #LeafsForever tonight in Florida, Mike Babcock confirms

My prediction: The Leafs continue to roll, but this win will be ugly. 4-3 Leafs in OT. What’s yours?
GO LEAFS GO!!
