What better way to celebrate having voting than to sit down and watch hockey while you wait for election results to come in?

Ahahahahahahahaha

There will be way more made than necessary about this matchup between Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine and the 38 other guys wearing jerseys tonight at Bell MTS Place. The Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs meet only twice this year, first tonight in Winnipeg and then in Toronto on Saturday. So if you’re looking for a preview of the Stanley Cup Finals...WAIT NO LONGER.

Dmitry Kulikov makes his season debut, while Joe Morrow exits after being benched for much of Monday’s game.

Frederik Andersen and Connor Hellebuyck start in net. Not the same net though. That would be weird.
