OK, they’ve only played one game each. But still, undefeated is undefeated. And how else are we going to hype a Leafs-Jets game in Winnipeg? We gotta Don King this thing up a bit.
Garret Sparks, of course, shut out the Oilers on Monday. It was the first time a Maple Leafs netminder had ever registered a shutout in his NHL debut.
Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck also won his NHL debut, though he had the audacity to allow a goal in a 3-1 win over Minnesota on Friday.
Tonight’s game is sponsored by Tecate.
— Ben Bishop likely for the Lightning. John Gibson for the Ducks.
