Coming off a wild and crazy night at Scotiabank Arena between the Leafs and Blues, there was no shortage of discussion points on the Wednesday edition of Leafs Morning Take.
Rosie’s buddy Brayden Schenn potted the shootout winner as St. Louis skated away with a 6-5 victory. Even though the loss snapped Toronto’s six game win streak at home, they did extend their point streak at Scotiabank Arena to 11 games. Positives, right? Also, Ilya Samsonov dropped his first game on home ice (9-0-1) of the season —albeit via the shootout. Michael Bunting tallied two goals for the second straight outing and sixth time in his career.
Meantime, former NHL tough guy turned broadcaster covering the St. Louis Blues, Cam Janssen, dropped by for a chat. I asked him if he thought the Leafs could finally break through this season.
Furthermore, with his apple on William Nylander’s 22nd of the season, Auston Matthews became the fastest player in Leafs history to 500 points (445 games). Naturally, courtesy our new friends over at Montana’s, we got back into the GLOAT conversation —which is always fun.
