It's so fun when hockey's back. It's not so fun when your team gives up a go-ahead goal with under a minute to play. Alas, here we are, with the Toronto Maple Leafs dropping their home and season opener to the Montreal Canadiens by a score of 4-3.

Now that the 2014-15 NHL season is upon us, there's no better time to make sure you're following all of your favourite TLN writers on Twitter.
Hockey Twitter is the best of times and the blurst of times, but it's also where you can get a ton of cool hockey content straight from the writers. It also gives you another way to contact us directly to our internet faces and tell us how dumb we are and where we should shove our ideas!!!

Hockey returns tonight. That’s exciting. Let’s talk about it for a while. Hopefully you spent some of your summer outside, doing stuff, maybe spending some time with family or friends, because hockey is your only friend now. Embrace your drug, slip on your jersey, open a beer and prepare to spend the next nine months arguing about Tyler Bozak’s shooting percentage.
Again we have the traditional opening night matchup between the Leafs and Habs. The Canadiens are proudly coming off a season that earned them playoff participant ribbons, and the Leafs coming off a season that many spent the summer drinking to forget. Tonight’s a clean slate and for the Leafs a chance to pick up their fifth opening night win in a row. It’s also a chance for us to take in the cheesefest which is an ACC opening night ceremony and the booing of Randy Carlyle during his introduction.
You can catch all the excitement on
CBC TSN Sportsnet starting at
5PM MT/ 7PM ET.

It's a hell of a day, people. Not only does the regular season kick off tonight, but we've also got a new weekly feature to roll out. Every Wednesday is now What Would You Do Wednesdays, where TLN will describe a fantastical scenario and you, the reader, will let us know how you would handle it in the comments below.
Here's where it gets fun. Once you provide us with your answer, everybody on the entire internet will read it. Then they will give it a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Then you will become very famous and popular and all the boys and/or girls at school and/or work will be very attracted to you. It's that easy.
Ready? Let's do it.
