Welcome to the Leafs Twitter Roundup! In this feature we find the best of Leafs Twitter as the game goes on. Tonight it's the Leafs and Golden Knights in Vegas baby, Vegas! Let's go!


- After last game I'd better see Vegas get taken down harder than it did in Ocean's 11




- My son was born a day after the last game between the Leafs and Knights. Now he's walking, talking and playing mini sticks.


- I wonder if a single person who says that women aren't real fans would wake up at 3am to watch a regular season Leafs game


- As a motocross fan, it's very cool that the top podcaster in MX is a huge Leafs fan from Manitoba


- That's the second most X-rated thing to happen in the NHL tonight


- Like I said, the second most X-rated thing


- Interesting that the least penalized team in the league suddenly can't stop taking penalties.. but only when they have the lead.


- Missed it by thaaaat much


- BRB gotta burn some sage, knock on some wood and diffuse some essential oils


- In order to draw a penalty shot call, the breakaway has to be so clear that the defender can't reach you to trip you..


- So uh, that's why nobody picked him up on waivers, eh?


- If you're going to the box, at least punch someone in the face or something


- The hockey gods are doing that thing again where the puck just *magics* its way into the Leafs' net


- and somehow Liljegren STILL isn't playing..


- How a power play that looks this flacid manages to score so often is beyond me. It doesn't look great tonight


- No people, it isn't just your TV.


- Robin Lehner really isn't helping with Matthews' Rocket defense


- Dear NHL Team Twitter accounts. Please stop.

End of 1: 1-1

2nd Period:


- Oh my GOODNESS!! SOUUUP!


- Jack's not having any of that tonight


- Good thing Jack is on his game, because the Leafs look like they were up playing Blackjack all night..


- I won't pretend to have the answers, but 8-3 isn't it




- I love it when a plan comes together


Tic-tac-toe goal brought to you by Tic Tac TOmar. You love to see it


- Just a couple of Arizona lads having a good time out there


- SAND BOMB


- I think I'd rather get hit by the fridge


- That hit reminds me of another Swedish defenseman who was quite well known for being a bit of a wall to run into


- What exactly did that doctor do to Ilya Mikheyev and when can I get that treatment?

End of 2: 3-1 Leafs


It appears someone showed Keefe the Kodak Black video on the bench

3rd Period:


- I didn't even get my beer open..


- Guys can we try covering the front of the net maybe? Please?


- JT has been great in the face-off dot and not great everywhere else. Hope he gets his legs back soon. Still.. can't complain about the season he's had


- Come ON, man..


- Don't you love how refs don't impact the game by directly impacting the game?


- I'm not gonna check, but I'm 99% sure the Leafs lead the league in delay of game penalties. 2 tonight.


- Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.


- What? 5 isn't enough?


- Bunting has also had enough of this nonsense



- If this game looks familiar, it may be because we've got the same ref we had against Colorado. Just saying.


Thanks guys, not like I have to work in the morning or anything..


- Somehow, NHL coaches have managed to make 3-on-3 hockey boring.


- I'll stop talking about the refs when they start doing their damn jobs. It is 1:00am here and I'm grumpy about it.

Shootout:



- I hate shootouts but I love seeing Willy score goals


- Jack is perfect. And also nobody scored on him in the shootout

Not a great game from the boys, but 2 points in the bank. Bent over by the refs, Vegas just couldn't quite complete the comeback win.
