It's been a difficult week for the Leafs, and while it's somewhat foolish to label a game "must-win" this early in the season, if they had dropped last night's game to the Lightning, the big-picture articles and radio spots regarding coaching and management would have kept churning out until an example was made. A solid win against arguably the best team in the conference helped to alleviate all that, at least temporarily.

It's been a tough week for the Leafs. One minute they were being crowned a dynasty after throttling the Bruins, then tumbled about as far as any team could since. All of the worst elements of this team have come to the surface in the last three games, none more important or unsurprising than the fact that they just can't play defence. Everything started to boil over last night when the team dropped a 9-2 decision to the Predators, suffering the worst loss of any NHL club this season.

I don't have to tell you why the game was postponed, as we all know what transpired here in the nation's capital yesterday. 

As Jon noted to me earlier, this is now the Sens' last home game before Remembrance Day, so that could have factored into the decision on the new date.

This Sunday night tilt will be the second half of a back-to-back for both teams. The Senators host the Jets the night before, while the Leafs are in New York to face the Rangers. 

The rescheduled game will have a 6:00pm EST start.

Well this is a bit of a surprise, but it's funny that this move comes at a time when Kadri trade rumors have been emerging, and there's also coverage of Tavares and Kadri during their London days ahead of tonight's matchup between the Leafs and Isles.
