Tonight is a game that is important. For many reasons. This is the Jets’ first game against our rebuilding partners, the Toronto Maple Leafs, with their special player Auston Matthews. This is also the Jets Hall of Fame Game, where they’re going to be lifting a banner up into the rafters. What is it you ask? I don’t know, but I assume it’s going to be Hot Line related.
Both the Jets and Leafs are fresh off of games against the Boston Bruins. The Leafs picked up a win on Saturday, while the Jets lost on Monday. Can the Jets reverse their fortune?
You can watch tonight’s game at 7:00 on Sportsnet or you can listen on TSN 1290.

I mean this one is pretty obvious, we have to hate Matthews tonight, but it’s the Leafs, so there’s no wrong answer on who to hate.
