It was better when it was only two games.

At first I thought this was a game against the Ottawa Senators because I looked at the wrong day on the calendar, but that is the next three games. Alas, the Winnipeg Jets will first play the Toronto Maple Leafs for a game before heading (slightly) north.

If you ask Leafs fans their goalies are the worst ever and should be fired into the sun. Frederick Andersen did have a rough first game, but definitely not rough enough to be fired into the sun. It should be interesting to see who starts tonight as it seems like Jack Campbell was stronger in game two, but Andersen is their starter. On the other hand, every point counts this year with only 56 games.

The Leafs have a rather potent attack up front, although it sounds like their fans are not super impressed with Mitch Marner again. Hey, I don’t know what’s going on there because watching the Leafs for fun is never a thought that goes through my head.

The Jets will be facing the Leafs formidable forwards without Tucker Poolman. Logan Stanley has been called up from the Taxi Squad and should make his NHL debut tonight. Should be fun. The only other concern for the Jets is Patrik Laine left practice early yesterday. No news how serious it is; hopefully we find out more today.
