Following a successful 4-0-0 road trip, the Leafs are back home to face Vegas with eyes on an eighth consecutive victory.
Amazingly, this win streak – seven games – is Toronto’s longest in 20 years. Considering the star power this franchise has had over the past decade alone, that’s an astonishing stat.
At any rate, let’s keep this train moving!
Anthony Stewart filled in for Jay Rosehill on the Tuesday edition of Leafs Morning Take. After getting Stewie’s thoughts on the win streak, the conversation shifted towards Boston. Remember when the Leafs couldn’t win in regulation? Well, it’s happening to the Bruins now. They’ve now been to overtime in six straight outings and seven of the past eight contests. Furthermore, the B’s have just 1 regulation win in the past 11 games. Uh oh. Let’s start talking about it.
Presented by Door Dash, The Appetizer focused on some of the news and notes from Monday’s practice. Predictably, we discussed the crease quite a bit. With Joseph Woll on the mend, the Leafs will soon have not one, not two, but three options to choose from in goal. Does it make sense to employ a three-goalie system long-term? Additionally, we dissected the blue line with Timothy Liljegren banged up, the deadline around the corner, and Mark Giordano’s return.
After that, brought to you by the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor, we previewed the opener of Toronto’s five game homestand. It’s the dreaded first game back from a lengthy road trip, so without question, the Leafs will need to weather the storm over the first few minutes. Of course, last Thursday night, Toronto waltzed into T-Mobile Arena in Vegas and spanked around the defending Stanley Cup champs 7-3. The Leafs have won seven in a row and 11 of 13. Furthermore, they have a ridiculous 22-5-2 record against the Western Conference so fa rthis season. Should be a good one!
Meantime, courtesy of BATL Axe, Daily Faceoff’s NHL Insider Frank Seravalli dropped by for a bit of a Leafs trade deadline preview. We hit on Chris Tanev, Toronto’s crease, and what to expect from Brad Treliving and company over the next 10 days. Spoiler: The trade market’s very quiet across the league right now.
