“At the moment, we’re first overall in the league and that is quite an accomplishment for our team. We are padding the points and we are going to have hard times at some point. We have to make hay while the sun is shining.”
The above quote is from Leafs head coach Ron Wilson after last night’s 4-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets (so much for my trap game theory). It pretty much sums up where things stand for the blue and white as everything continues to go right.
The team sits atop the NHL standings, Mike Komisarek is actually playing well, Joey Crabb is a sniper and Mike Brown’s mustache is making a comeback.
Enjoy the good times, Leafs fans.
