TORONTO – The best thing about the Toronto Maple Leafs matching a dubious modern National Hockey League record for going five consecutive home games without scoring a goal through the first 40 minutes is they’re hopping on a plane Friday and heading back on the road, where they’re a pristine 5-0.
Curious, isn’t it?
The same Leafs (more or less) that set a franchise record last season with 29 wins in their own building tumbled to 3-5 at Scotiabank Arena in 2018-19 with Thursday’s 2-1 loss at the hands of the Dallas Stars.
