"The Toronto Maple Leafs come back from yet another successful road trip hoping to improve their play at home. The Leafs shut out the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday as Frederik Andersen earned his first shutout of the season and the Leafs improved their road record to a perfect 6-0-0.Toronto is looking to keep that momentum going tonight against the Vegas Golden Knights as they hope to improve on their 3-5-0 home record. "We've been asking ourselves for a while now and until this point, we haven't done the things we need to do at home. I think today, enough is enough to be honest. We have to be ready to go and excited to play." Leafs forward Kasperi Kapanen said.
"We feel good about how things have been going on the road, but it's time we start to assert ourselves in our own building." defenseman Morgan Rielly stated. Rielly has snapped out of his cold streak by scoring two goals against the Penguins and leads all NHL defenseman with 18 points. Max Pacioretty returns to the Golden Knights lineup after dealing with an upper body injury, the former Canadiens' captain is ice cold to start the season with just two goals in 10 games. The Leafs will send Andersen in between the pipes for the eighth straight game while Marc-Andre Fleury will get the start for the Golden Knights.
