Leafs, This is Our Year!

Published October 1, 2009 - 1 Comment

Regular season NHL play started tonight with arch rivals Montreal Canadiens playing the Toronto Maple Leafs.

I sat down to watch my Leafs play their first game since April.  They should have been well rested, since they don’t like to play in the playoffs, and how much energy does it take to swing a golf club?

The first thing I noticed…  I didn’t recognize either of these two teams!  I don’t know if they decided to trade everyone away in the off season, or if they’re just handing out jerseys to the first 30 people who walk through the door, but there are soooo many new names on both teams.  I just didn’t recognize anyone!  Well, the goalies are still the same, but that’s about it.

The back and forth battle had the Leafs leading 3-2 late in the third period, but like they love to do… they gave up a goal with only a couple of minutes left.

And lost in overtime…

But hey..  this is our year.  I can feel it.  We’re just gonna take it nice and slow…

Shots on goal 46-27 in favour of Toronto.  We’re working too hard…
