Leafs Postgame: PDOhWhatever

#455917290 / gettyimages.com A preseason game against the Buffalo Sabres; what could possibly go wrong? Well, if last year was any indication, a lot of things.

Two games, happening at the same time, 450 kilometres apart.  It was a lot to wrap our heads around, but we came through. Find Jeff’s recap of the Toronto game right here.  Over in Ottawa, the Leafs sent a paper-thin lineup to take…
