NHL Leafs at the Islanders
Look at this mug. I know that Phil doesn’t play for the leafs anymore but he is by far my favorite player to every be there. Maybe my favorite athlete to ever play in Canada besides Vince Carter.
How this guy was left off the USA hockey team doesn’t make a lot of sense to me or really anybody. When Phil got traded to Pittsburgh it was a great day for me being my hometown. Actually getting some good defense in their and giving him the chance to win the Lords Stanley Cup. Plus he is a just a great guy.
On to the game
Both of these teams of late are just scoring a bunch of goals. With all the crap going on with the Islanders getting kicked out of their stadium people forget they are 22-18-10 this year. There is a good chance that will get them into the playoff situation if they keep it up. Led by John Tavares with 43 pts this is shaping up to be a good game between the two. The Leafs are being led by a bunch of kids. Michelle Marner who has 44 points and Austin Mathews with 42 points. Both players are only 19yrs old. How they models are shaping up for this game It’s a tough one to call. Everything looks to be shifting towards the Leafs in this one which will make me swing the other way. I’m taking the Islanders to win by a goal and a close game in this one.
