Maple Leafs Pregame #12: 5 things to watch for as Marleau returns

I miss Patty. His contract was an albatross. His 2018-19 was substandard, but that doesn’t change the fact that I miss his awkward smile and the way he excelled in the locker room Dad role. I miss him almost as much as the 1st round pick the Leafs gave up to get rid of him.
Here’s hoping that Matthews and Marner want to show up their old man tonight and put on a show. They are due and Martin Jones is appears to be the ideal slump busting goaltender, which probably means the Leafs will get shutout. (I kid because I love.)
