The Anaheim Ducks continue their five game trip through Canada tonight with a matchup against one of the league’s most popular, polarizing clubs in the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Ducks have won seven in a row and have not lost a game in December, and their streak has vaulted the team to a NHL-leading 47 points. However, the Maple Leafs are also hot in their own right, winning five consecutive contests and nine of their previous 11 games following a 9-2 embarrassment to the Nashville Predators on November 18th. Toronto is finishing their three game homestand against the Ducks, and they have already posted wins over the Detroit Red Wings and Los Angeles Kings to begin this home stretch.

The Maple Leafs are one of the most storied, iconic, and well-known franchises in the NHL. However, to get an even better idea about the Leafs, I asked questions to Jeffrey Langridge, one of the co-editors at Editor in Leaf, the site that covers the Toronto Maple Leafs on the FanSided network. The questions regard how a certain former Duck is doing now in Toronto, a philosophical change in the team’s roster, and how their offseason changes have impacted the team, if at all.
