Mr. Murphy

When Kessel got knocked down by Ohlund during last night's game I covered my face for the next five minutes. I thought the worst.

So far this Leafs' season has been a key demonstration of Murphy's Law: If anything can go wrong, it will. The fact that Kessel returned to the ice though perhaps is a sign that things are about to turn around.

Not only did he return but he played a great game. There were few signs of the rust that should be expected and it gave me something I had almost lost: hope

Sure, the Leafs lost the game on a debatable goal but that I hope will be the last we hear from Mr. Murphy.
