This Tampa Bay Lightning player had some choice words about the Leafs' historically bad playoff performances ahead of their matchup tonight.

Sergachev Roasts Leafs Ahead of Game Tonight

The Leafs and Lightning are quickly turning into a new-era rivalry, with a few heated playoff matchups driving the teams' dislike for one another. Tonight's matchup will be the first game between the two since the Leafs were able to send the former Cup Champs home in the first round last year, breaking their decades-long second-round drought.

Ahead of the matchup, Mikhail Sergachev reminded Leaf players and fans about their unfortunate past performances.

Probably that we lost and (had) a long summer, so, yeah, that's probably what they feel every year.

Both Teams Off to a Mediocre Start This Season

Both the Leafs and the Lightning are off to a mediocre start this year, with the Leafs at even 2 wins and 2 losses, while the Lightning have the same 2 wins and 2 losses, as well as an overtime loss.

The anticipated matchup tonight is the first opportunity for players to be reacquainted with one another for the 2023-24 season.

happy leafs vs lightning gameday to all who celebrate!!
