The first Sunday of the 2018 season features a matchup between the Toronto Maple Leafs out of the Atlantic division in the Eastern Conference against the Chicago Blackhawks out of the Central division in the Western Conference.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Maple Leafs picked up their first win of the season when they defeated the Montreal Canadiens this past Wednesday by a score of 3-2. This was an overtime win with a goal by Auston Matthews to seal the win. Unfortunately the Maple Leafs lost Saturday night’s game, so they enter this game with only two points to show for.
As mentioned, Auston Matthews had a great opening game for Toronto and was the hero of the night. He opens the season with two goals already and will be looking to continue scoring on Sunday.
The Blackhawks also picked up an overtime win on Thursday over the Ottawa Senators. Patrick Kane scored the game winner to lift the Blackhawks to a 4-3 victory. Kane also added an assist giving him two points for the opening game.
The Blackhawks had four different goal scorers in the opening game and did a nice job to have a balanced attack. Going into this game, look for the Blackhawks to spread the puck around once again and take advantage of any holes in the Maple Leafs defense.
