What to expect from the second weekend of the NHL season in Toronto

Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock says his team is focused on winning its second game in three nights after getting outshot 13-7 at the Toronto Marlies on Thursday.

The Leafs, who are coming off a 5-2 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins, have not won a game since Feb. 23, 2009.

Babcock said he expects the team to focus on winning tonight.

“It’s about being ready for the second game,” he said.

“That’s what we’re focused on tonight.” 

Babcock said that he doesn’t think the Leafs will get caught up in how many goals they score.

“The way we look at it, we’re not going to be too concerned about how many points we score,” he told reporters.

“We’re going to look at the first game and try to win that first game.

We’re going back to what we’ve been doing, how we play, how our team is playing.

We’ll focus on the second.” 

 The Leafs will return to action on Friday when they take on the Winnipeg Jets at the Air Canada Centre.

They will face the Washington Capitals on Sunday.
