What Alexis Lafreniere said on Toronto radio today

Alexis Lafreniere was on Leafs Lunch on TSN 1050 today and said:

  • Lafreniere is allergic to peanuts
  • On the vibe after last night’s game, “it was pretty fun, to be honest. We were all expecting to go to overtime, obviously, and then they made a quick play and we scored. It was pretty fun and the building was really into it, it was a nice ending for sure.”

What Gerard Gallant said after the win over Buffalo

Gerard Gallant met with the media following the win over Buffalo and said (MSG, NYR):

  • On the game, “It was sloppy in the second period, we didn’t get off to a great start in the first period either. Like I said, it was one of those games, but we found a way to get two points at the end.”
  • More on the game, “I think we had 30-something shots and were putting pucks to the net. Perfect example, I think they scored two goals from the point and K’Andre’s goal was from the point. You get some traffic and shoot pucks and some good things happen. It was a wild five minutes in the middle of that second period, for sure.”
  • On pulling Georgiev, “nothing, just coaches decision.”
  • On his conversation with Zibanejad at the end of the game, “He was yelling at the ref, I don’t know why, he thought like there should have been a penalty in the neutral zone. I told him that there are .4 seconds left, the game is over, leave the ref alone.”

We try to cover a couple of things every practice, I liked the practice this morning, it was good, hopefully, it turns into a good game for that.”
