Toronto Maple Leafs centre John Tavares smiles during the warm-up skate as he make his Toronto Maple Leafs debut against the Montreal Canadiens during NHL hockey action in Toronto on October 3, 2018. Growing up as a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs, John Tavares remembers some of the great playoff battles his favourite team had with the Ottawa Senators. It doesn’t seem very likely he’ll get to write his own chapter in that rivalry any time soon. The Leafs, among this year’s Stanley Cup contenders, host the rebuilding Ottawa Senators on Saturday in both teams’ second game of the regular season. (Nathan Denette/CP)
