Its GAME DAY !!!
The Leafs are limping. Their swagger is on a shelf right now.
Its also early January, middle of nasty cold stretch. Weather, and production.
Leaning heavily on the goaltending of Frederik Andersen, the Leafs goaltender will be looked to again in order to save the posterior of the collective unit.
The other Frederik, Gauthier will make his second start in a row as a 4th line center. Does this spell the end for Domenic Moore as a Leafs player? Unsure but The Goat had a solid game with two shots on goal, a hit and blocked shot, with a 67% in the circle in just over 8 minutes.
That is a good stat line.
The team is not firing on all cylinders. Not even close but it will take all hands on deck in order to beat a very solid San Jose team.
The Leafs have not beaten San Jose since a Bryan McCabe goal in overtime 150 years ago.
I got the Leafs in a close one.
Who you got?
