On the road again…..I can’t wait to get back on the road again.
The Toronto Maple Leafs (8-5-0) head into Pittsburgh to take on the Penguinos (6-2-3) this evening, and the timing could not be better.
The Maple Leafs are undefeated in the 5 road games they have played this year and are a dismal 3-5 at home. The last time the Leafs scored in the opening 40 minutes of a game at the Scotiabank Areana, Jesus was a Cowboy.
Leafs announced last night that Trevor Moore was being called up from the Toronto Marlies.

Trevor Moore was a Playoffs beast for the Marlies last season on their way to the Calder Cup Championship, and the 23 year old native of Thousand Oaks, California has 12 points in 10 games this season.
Moore, was a walk on with the Marlies two years ago after completing his time at the University of Denver.
According to the game day skate it would appear that Moore is getting some pressbox time tonite, but could Mike Babcock just be throwing media and fans off the scent?
Leafs optional skate with Sparks, Marincin, Holl & Moore staying out late

This is going to be a massively tough test tonight in Pittsburgh. Leafs need a statement game, and need John Tavares to be part of that statement.
