It's an ongoing joke that Toronto-born hockey players always step up when they face off against their hometown team, except no Leafs fans were laughing when local kid Connor McDavid lit them up for five points tonight in a 5-2 Edmonton win. That is unless you already joined the Tank Nation ranks and were actively rooting for Toronto to finally take sole ownership over 30th place in the league. If that's the case, then a big ol' salute to you, soldier. Mission accomplished.

On this episode, Steve is glad someone is finally thinking of Chicago, assessing Phaneuf, and #DangleNavy.

Wow, did you guys see Connor McDavid's pregame interview? pic.twitter.com/7uf56oIFzc— The Tank Nation (@TLNdc) December 1, 2015
Connor McDavid is finally going to be forced to do the one thing he's been avoiding for his entire life; facing the Toronto Maple Leafs. I feel for the kid, really; he clearly wanted to be here, to the point where his clavicle acted in his best interests to get him out of the last matchup between these two teams.
But now, the gloves are off, and the Leafs need a loss. Tonight, even in Blue and Orange, he is Toronto's saviour, not Edmonton's, as the Leafs push for a huge zero points. Let's get right to it.
