The Leafs came out like a house on fire Saturday night in Minnesota, however, as the game continued, they had to grind out the latter stages and work their asses off to get the momentum back in their favour.

Auston Matthews got the party started as #34 now has 13 goals in 13 games.

From one superstar to another.

Joe Bowen was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame as he received the Foster Hewitt award in downtown Toronto. An amazing honour for an even better guy, but as we all know Joe’s been in our Hall of Famer since the very first ‘holy mackinaw’.

Remember when Naz has zero goals.
