Toronto Maple Leafs News & Notes: October 30, 2013

Well that was an interesting game last night. The Edmonton Oilers fired all kinds of rubber at James Reimer but couldn’t beat him, and the Leafs’ quick-strike offense was at its best, led by the sensational Phil Kessel. At some point, the goaltending and high shooting percentages will regress, but we’ll worry about that when the time comes. Next up is the Calgary Flames who started the year off strongly, but have since faded, although they were able to beat the Washington Capitals in their last game on Saturday. They’ll have plenty of rest while the Leafs will need to keep the energy level high after playing last night.
