Leafs fans Abruzz over Leafs prospect Nick Abruzzese winning ECAC Rookie of the Year

Wow! Was this the news you were expecting to see come across your feed today?

One chance to rewrite the script everything – Game 7 and all – isn’t that appropriate?
What Doesn’t Need Rewriting
Before getting into what needs to change, let’s set a few things straight.
1.

Some of y’all are reacting like the Leafs just got swept 4-0 rather than being tied in a close series between two of the league’s top teams.

The Leafs have been good in this series at playing their game. Through six games, the Leafs have outscored Boston 11-8 at 5v5, and – unlike last year – have allowed their speed and skill to dictate the course of most games. The Leafs have come ready to play in four of their six games in this …
