Young Fan from NL Gets VIP Trip to Toronto to Meet the Leafs

"It was awesome, I was so surprised, I couldn't believe it", Foster said.

Marner left Saturday's game against Philadelphia after getting tied up with Flyers forward Carsen Twarynski off a faceoff. The 22-year-old struggled to get to the bench and went the locker room.

Tavares and the Maple Leafs made a decision to reach out to Kade and gave him the chance to meet his heroes on Saturday ahead of Toronto's game against the Philadelphia Flyers. "But I think it was pretty cool seeing the guys going over trying to help him". You can always expect to see some magic from Patrick Kane, who looks like he will be carrying the Blackhawks' offence, and the Nylander brothers will face off in Chicago for the first time. And he tried to grit it through. He tried to tough it out. "He's a massive part of this club". He returned during a television timeout to test his ankle, but once again headed off and was done for the night.

"Mitch is a big part of our group in many ways", said defenceman Morgan Rielly. He plays a very significant role and makes great plays. "Hopefully, it's nothing serious and he's back as soon as he can".

After the Maple Leafs banked seven of a possible eight points over the last week (plus a few hours, here) despite leading for 16 minutes and 31 seconds total across 250-plus minutes contested over four games, what if Frederik Andersen was only just, good? And it was Travis Dermott and William Nylander with the goals for Toronto, which ran its points streak to five games with the bonus-time defeat.
