Toronto kicks off road trip against ‘some really good teams’

Mar 10, 2014, 2:10 PM EDT

The Toronto Maple Leafs will begin a tough five-game road trip tonight in Anaheim. With contests in San Jose, Los Angeles, Washington, and Detroit to follow, it promises to be one of the tougher stretches of the season for a Leafs side that still has work to do to make the playoffs.

A quick glance at the standings reveals a fairly comfortable cushion for the Leafs…

…but that cushion could be quickly erased if things go sideways on their trip.

“We’ll see some really good teams now, starting with the first three in a row,” coach Randy Carlyle said, per the Toronto Sun.

“We have to understand there is a certain type of game we have to play out on the road. We’re a skating club and we have to show that.”

Toronto enters its all-important trip on a two-game winning streak, both victories coming in overtime, including Saturday’s 3-2 defeat of the Flyers.

      You either drank too much or not enough of the kool aid. I’m not sure how it works with you.
