I can't imagine Mike Babcock envisioned losing his first three games behind the Leafs' bench, but this is likely what he meant by "there will be pain". Despite seeing Toronto's offence come on for the first time this season, a four-goal outburst wouldn't be enough to get by the Ottawa Senators, losing 5-4 in the shootout.

On Saturday night, the very defeated Leafs take on the undefeated Ottawa Senators. With just one goal for and seven against in their first two games, the Leafs look, to start the year, about as expected, honestly. Playing three games in four nights is almost never favourable, and for the 0-2 Leafs, it could present some difficulties.
Unless, of course, you've already written off the season, in which case, the schedule plays a hand in the early start of Tank Nation: 2016 Edition.
In any case, Ottawa comes in with a 1-0 record with a victory over Jack Eichel's Sabres, the only loss of his career to date.

I don't know how many times I'll be able to say "William Nylander is really good at hockey" before you all get bored and young Snizzbone puts a restraining order on me. With that said, that day hasn't come yet, but the start of the Toronto Marlies' season came tonight. A somewhat renovated Ricoh Coliseum was the home of many debuts tonight, but it was the 19-year-old sophomore who stole the show.
