2 – Toronto Maple Leafs
Through 10 games, the Toronto Maple Leafs have made things quite interesting for themselves, with four of those games heading into overtime. Sooner or later, though, the Leafs must learn to put opponents away. That being said, perhaps we’ll see quite a thriller tomorrow night when they host the Sabres.
1 – Boston Bruins
No, we’re not going through this again. We’re definitely not going through this again, right? So far, the Boston Bruins have 19 points in 10 games, and are 9-0-1, so yeah, at this point, we are going through this again. Well, if there is one lesson learned over the past calendar year, it’s to never underestimate Boston.
Overall, the Atlantic Division has been a tough one, so it’s refreshing to see the Buffalo Sabres showing signs of their high-octane game returning. If they can keep scoring big tonight and tomorrow while maintaining sound defense, then they have a chance to rise in these rankings.
