Auston Matthews scores the Leafs' first goal of the season (and his first NHL goal, obviously.)

Leafs Nation just creamed its collective pants.

Holy shit, his second goal was sick. He made three or four Sens look like ruhtards.

I wonder what odds coulda got on an Auston Matthews hat trick tonight. He's got an excellent shot at it now.

Let's make it five, Austonballs. One PP goal plus an empty-netter. Common.

Well it's the NHL. There's losing - and there's losing.

Which is to say there's losing - which would be losing - and then there is you-lost-but-we-don't-want-you-feeling-too-hurt. So you get a point. See? You didn't really lose lose.

You get a point.

There there.

Typical for a Good ol' boy to step in and save a franchise 'up there'.
