I really do not like Mathews. There's no logical reason why I have this animosity towards him. Everything I've read about him concerning his personal life he seems like a really decent guy off the ice. But still.....


I would really like it if he got smacked into the boards heavily a few times and comes out of the game a -6. Oh, and  given a really good face wash. I hate his smirk.

Stuart Skinner and Joseph Will back-to-back.

I can’t recall ever playing two goalies I’ve never heard of back-to-back.

The string of goalies we’ve faced this season is a story unto itself.

No one believes in them except them. Hopefully teams are forced to smarten up

What's the thoughts on Dell from his time with Rochester?  I know he was playing better than UPL but how did he look?  He seems like the weak link for tonight so hopefully he has a great game.

I'm hoping the team can keep things going tonight in a back to back.  We have been good at home this season though.  

Bryson and Cozens both played well with family at the game.  Hopefully they are staying for tonight's game too.

Sabres 5, Leafs 3

Does Cozens go head to head with Auston Matthews?

According to Leafs fans Matthews is the world’s greatest.

I hope Bryson messes up Nylander’s hair

Let’s go Buffalo, we want two in a row, humiliate Toronto!

Look man we all hate the leafs, and wish broken limbs upon their players and what not, but you gotta cool it with the bolded - going a little too far.

It will be interesting to see the Arena full (or close to it) if that is true.

When was the last time we had a full arena for a game....1.5 years ago? almost 2 years ago?

Or many of the Sabres fans who have been attending may have sold their tickets and it will be a half full arena of Leafs fans.
