Scott may actually have a dance partner tomorrow night in Orr.

I'm a bit worried about the Sabres playing the back-to-back game, and Toronto gave them some trouble last year. Toronto's not a very good team on paper, but they're scrappy and can surprise you. The Sabres had best come prepared.

Wonder who the Leafs will have in net. Their offense isn't bad, some good speed on that team. I think we see a high scoring game tomorrow.

I saw a Leaf fan post that we've lost the last 5 games in Toronto. Is that right? I don't feel like it's been that long since we won there.

Yes, that's right. All three road games last year and the final two in 2010-11.

I really hope we win this game. All my buddies and what seems like the entire University campus are leafs fans. Of course I have class from 6-9 so I am recording the game and shutting off my phone, Facebook and twitter and sitting by myself in class away from my friends who will be streaming it. Its gonna be a hell of a challenge

I plan on subscribing for that price.

Scrivens to start I believe, hopefully he won't finish

Scrivens, just came off a solid game and was the first star. He deserves the start and will most likely get it, Reimer will start against Pittsburgh or the Islanders (more likely), doubt Carlyle throws him out while hes cold against Geno and Sid.

This should be a dandy of a game. I think there will be at least 7 goals scored in this one. Let's go, 2-0!

Orr's career might end if he does. He's been KO'd repeatedly; his style is to take 3 punches to give one, but taking 3 punches from Scott is not something that people do, especially when they've been ko'd a few times already.

More than likely Scrivens. Although a bit shaky at times (who wouldn't be in their first game in Montreal and it being the season opener) he did the job only allowing one goal, getting the W and first star. Reimer is just not ready yet, he looked pretty bad in the scrimmage game last week. Scrivens will probably go until we lose or if we get shelled.

I'll be in attendance as per usual for games in T.O.

Here's hoping for a nice Buffalo win!

Heck, I'm greedy! Here's to a BIG Buffalo win AND to seeing Grigorenko's first NHL goal!

Alright! Pumped up to see the leafs get blown away by our Sabres! Hopefully we can go into their house, and not only beat them, but beat them up like we did Philly. (Man I love being able to say that. )
