A new story from The Ray & Dregs Hockey Podcast


Like I just mentioned, I'm a thinker. And I think for the Toronto Maple Leafs, there's got to be just one of the key words for them is hatred going into the playoffs, a little bit of hate, maybe a lot of hate for the Tampa Bay lightning, hate the results of the past, and just hate the idea of not winning the series.
