A strong start is not a new experience for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Their next opponent, meanwhile, is in the midst of its best beginning in 11 seasons.

The Colorado Avalanche will try to add to their early success by completing a sweep of a five-game road trip and handing the Maple Leafs their first loss of the season Monday night.

Toronto (3-0-0) started 4-0 in 2010-11 but missed the playoffs for the sixth straight year. The Maple Leafs took another step toward ending that drought by rallying for a 3-2 win over Calgary on Saturday in the third of five straight home games to open this season.

Crucialness Key:
I like how the Col O'Rado lineup has O'Reilly, O'Brien, and O'Byrne in it.  They should keep the theme going by scoring O'Goals.   :P

go leafs!
