Leafs/Rangers Preview: Leafs Morning Take
By Nick Alberga7 months ago
I’m looking forward to tonight’s measuring stick game against the New York Rangers.
I have a long memory..still remember December 15th in New York when Jimmy Vesey (out of all players) stuck it to his former team. Well, tonight, the Leafs have a chance to avenge that game and loss when they host the New York Rangers for game two of five on their homestand.
Naturally, the conversation on the Wednesday edition of Leafs Morning Take kicked off with the expected goalie matchup: Ilya Samsonov against Igor Shesterkin. Is that a doozy or what? As I’ve been stating for a few weeks, it’s time for Toronto to give Samsonov an extended run. He’s earned it. And honestly, how do you deviate from someone who’s 13-0-1 on home ice?
After teeing up Toronto and New York, we also addressed the bottom-six and if it could use an upgrade. Honestly, I wouldn’t be shocked if one of Pierre Engvall or Alex Kerfoot are shipped out pre-deadline to create some cap space. Lastly, we also took a look at the up-to-date Atlantic Division standings.
As per usual, we wrapped with the PointsBet Canada bet of the day where we’re shot prop huntin’ once again.
