The Leafs are undefeated. I will continue to say this and annoy other fanbases endlessly until the Leafs lose a game. Frankly, they weren’t the better team last night, but Jonathan Bernier made up for it by being a brick wall in net. Check out James’ recap if you’d like more details. Here are your links:
I think Bernier earned himself a start on Saturday, don’t you? From Ryan Fancey of The LeafsNation.
If you missed it, George Parros was released from hospital with a concussion Wednesday and is out indefinitely. Concussions suck, but at least he’s out of the hospital. Get well soon, Le Stache. From the Canadian Press via CBC Sports.
I can understand why general managers would be opposed to fighting, since their interest is keeping their investments healthy. But until the players agree a change needs to be made, a change won’t be made. From Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.
Two nights are in the books, but still plenty of teams have yet to open their season. Besides the obvious Leafs-Senators game, I’m looking forward to Canucks-Sharks and Bruins-Red Wings. From Matt Brigidi of SB Nation.
If there’s one thing the NHL does right, it’s painfully long pre-game introductions. Wait, I mean wrong. Or right? I don’t know. Here’s Sean McIndoe a.k.a Down Goes Brown for Grantland.
An annual tradition, like Christmas or Black Friday. The Leafs are big, and they’re young. From James Mirtle.
