Well, the point streaks had to end eventually, right?
Former Leaf Jimmy Vesey scored twice as the Rangers upended the Leafs 3-1 to snap Toronto’s 15-game point streak. On top of that, Mitch Marner failed to register a point as well, which marked the end of his impeccable 23 game run. Speaking of which, we have another point streak to watch closely now as Michael Bunting scored to extend his to 10 games. Dun, dun, dun.
It’s one loss, whatever. The Friday Edition of Leafs Morning Take recapped a tough night at Madison Square Garden. Again, it’s tough to rip a team that just suffered its first regulation loss in over a month (Nov. 11).
Meantime, we also discussed the injury to Timothy Likjegren. After the game, Sheldon Keefe called it an upper-body issue. Next man up, that’s all they can do, right? Also, it sounds like Morgan Rielly is getting closer, too.

Lastly, we previewed the Leafs/Capitals game tomorrow night from Washington. With a goal, Alex Ovechkin can tie Gordie Howe for second all-time. Ilya Samsonov, who’s making his return to D.C., will get the call. I love revenge games.
As per usual, we wrapped with the PointsBet Canada bet of the day:
