We have the NHL's top-3 superstar just entering his prime and arguably three in the top-15. Leafs have never had that post-1967. People say hysteria. After years of desolation I think we're entitled to a little :D

Leafs having a bit of fun (at the expense of Gardiner and his wallet):

I want to see that heli-celly in game.

Edit:

Apparently, this celebration was Matthews mocking Gardiner for the thing that he does with his stick to celebrate stopping an attack. This is so cute.

Quote
MATTHEWS: “Jake just never stops talking about how the forwards should score on every 2-on-1 and how easy it is… how we’re always trying to make the extra pass and the D do a good job of taking it away. So, we let him be the forward today, and he can see how easy it is for himself.”

McADAM: “I don’t know what was going on. I heard there was something about money going to charity. They just said, ‘Stop the puck. Good luck!’”

Also a really attractive quality in Babcock's eyes is when players treat making defensive stops as goals. Gardiner should have picked Dermott or Rielly to partner with instead.

If they would of scored I would of went upstairs for a review. Zaitsev was 2 feet offside.

Just because early-in-the-season-silly-stats are fun:

The entire Arizona Coyotes roster has 19 points so far this season.
Auston Matthews has 16.

But, before last night, the entire Coyotes roster had a total of 9 points.
The Leafs have 4 players with 10 or more.

Practice pairings 3 days before a game are pretty much useless. But Dermott wasn't great last night, neither was Oz. Like I said in the GDT, I wouldn't be surprised if both sat a game for Marincin and Holl.

So trade Nylander to Arizona?
