Maple Leafs vs Canadiens
7:30pm — TSN4
Last Game — MTL 4-3, April 11th 2015
After winning both games (split squad action) last night vs the Ottawa Senators the Maple Leafs will hope to continue their winning ways but more importantly also continue to learn the systems that Mike Babcock and coaching staff are trying to incorporate. There will be growing pains as these systems are implemented but the organization and structure (save one Roman Polak breakdown) that were shown during last evenings games are a step in the right direction.
As Mike Babcock stated on Monday…“All we’re going to do is build a process here, and I will make it very clear to the guys that I will be happy,”
Babcock said as he began his first training camp as coach of the Maple Leafs. “I like being happy, period. The two things that irritate me the most are lack of preparation and lack of compete. That’s not happening.”
Many story lines will be on display during the game, with increased attention placed on young players trying to battle their way onto the NHL roster to start this season. Plus, I hate the Habs more than anything else in life so there is that too.
Go Leafs Go.
