Maple Leafs Pregame #26: 5 things to watch for against the Wings

It feels like forever since the Leafs played, and I think we all need this game. Not only would it be nice to see the good times with Coach Keefe continue, but it would also be nice to watch and enjoy the sport and remember why we put up with toxicity that plagues it.
The Wings are bad, and that should help the Leafs good times continue, and the last game against the Wings certainly speaks to optimism for the Leafs as well, but the luxury of taking any game lightly is long gone, and sitting 4 points out of a Wild Card spot with the entire conference having games at hand over the Leafs, it’s best they #get2work.
