Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
Let's do a grab bag today....
In hockey, you've got choices tonight including the Toronto Maple Leafs hosting the Dallas Stars.
The Leafs are 1 point behind Tampa Bay for 1st place in their division and conference going to their game tonight against Dallas at the Scotiabank Arena.
But there's all kinds of loose ends for the Leafs these days;
Plus on home ice, Toronto has been average at best compared to their work on the road.
I'll be in Meaford tonight as the Knights host the Almaguin Spartans in the Greater Metro Junior League.
The Spartans are 5th in the North, 3 points up on 8th place Meaford...BUT the Knights have 6 games in hand.
Moving to football, will anybody outside of the Bay Area in California watch the NFL game tonight ?
The Oakland Raiders ( 1 & 6 ) at the San Francisco 49'ers ( 1 & 7 ). Ugh.
And finally, the Raptors are about to embark on a 4 game NBA road swing tomorrow when they open at Phoenix.
Toronto is 7 & 1 early in the season.
Kawhi Leonard has been in the lineup for all 7 victories. The only time he hasn't dressed, the Raptors lost.
Can you name the player Leonard was traded for ?
That's the grab bag, see you tonight in Meaford
I'm Fred Wallace
