The return of Joe Thornton!!!
Jumbo Joe has played just 5 games for the Leafs, and in those games he has recorded just 1 goal and 1 assist, but it’s not the points that the team is looking forward to:
Big Joe Thornton is a guy you want in the room and on the ice, he’s a consummate pro and his teammates love him. For the team to react the way they have been after having him in the lineup for just 5 games is amazing. It just goes to show just how great a professional Joe Thornton really is.
Let’s hope that help’s this team avoid another lackluster effort like they put forth during the last game, where they came out solid but took their foot off the gas and handed the Montreal Canadiens a 2-1 win.
Your lineup for tonight:
Final note: The Leafs play the Seantors on Wednesday and Thursday as well. With Jack Campbell on the sidelines it would make sense if Michael Hutchinson made his season debut. Knowing Hutch, the Leafs needs to win tonight in order to secure 4 of the 6 points that will be available to them over this 3 game series.
I look forward to the return of Jack Campbell and Wayne Simmonds.
Enjoy the game.
GO LEAFS GO!!
