Not a bad day to be snowed in, with a full lineup of all-Canadian hockey on television. Peterborough is hosting Hockey Day and I may brave the conditions to check out the scene on the Trent Canal.
The road warrior Toronto Maple Leafs (5-1 away) look to replicate their success in the season opener at the Bell Centre tonight. The Leafs should expect a stiffer test as the Habs have gone 6-2-1 since looking awful in that opener and are no longer sans Subban. The two teams are a point apart sitting sixth and seventh in the Eastern Conference standings.
A few quick links this morning…
Korbinian Holzer impressing teammates and coaches
Carlyle leaned on Holzer for 23:41 and gave Liles over 20 minutes in the Leafs‘ 3-2 win over Winnipeg. Kostka dipped below 20 minutes.
Phaneuf knows his numbers are offensive
Dion needs to be part of the solution on the PP and the points will come. Thought he played an excellent game vs. Winnipeg.
