It doesn’t take much reason to get fired up for a Leafs and Habs game. If the Habs require any extra motivation all they have to do is think back to April 7th when they squandered a lead and failed to beat the Leafs to advance to the playoffs.
Putting the Leafs down 0-3 to start the season in front of the Toronto crowd and all of Canada would be as good as it gets this early in the season.
For anyone who has watched or listened to Habs games on Hockey Night in Canada in the past, you are no doubt familiar with the Toronto tandem of Harry Neale and Bob Cole’s and their sickening pro-Leaf infused commentary.
Well it may be the last we’ve heard.
Harry Neale took a job doing color commentary in Buffalo and no longer works for LeafsNet although he will continue sparingly with CBC.
Though the 70-year-old analyst will continue to work for Hockey Night In Canada, he won’t be calling as many Toronto games as he has in the past.
Neale and Bob Cole often worked almost exclusively on Leaf games, but the CBC will be moving its announcing crews around more this season.
Sadly we may never hear…
